Multifamily rents rise again in June, Yardi Matrix reports

Average U.S. multifamily rents rose another $19 in June to edge over $1,700 for the first time ever, according to the latest Yardi® Matrix Multifamily Report.

The increase was fueled by strong demand and rent growth throughout the country. Rent growth increased at least 10 percent year-over-year in 25 of Yardi’s top 30 metros. National occupancy rates were solid at 96 percent.

On a year-over-year basis, growth continues to slow down. In June, it decelerated by 50 basis points to 13.7 percent. That’s 130 basis points off the February peak of 15.2 percent.

Rents in the single-family build-to-rent (BTR) sector continue to grow as well. The average single-family BTR asking rent increased by $23 in June to an all-time high of $2,071. Year-over-year growth dropped by 90 basis points to 11.8 percent.

“The multifamily market is starting to show signs of deceleration in June but is still performing at extremely high levels. Year-over-year rent growth was down 50 basis points from May. While rent growth in 2022 is still higher than any previous year on record, it is the fourth month in a row year-over-year rent growth declined,” note Matrix analysts.

The expectation for the remainder of 2022 is for rents to increase at slower rates as the economy cools off. “Inflation rates will take a while to ebb, causing consumers to cut into savings and their ability to afford increasing rental rates will lessen as the year goes on,” states the latest report.
