Yardi Matrix Report: U.S. Multifamily Sector Riding a Robust Cycle

SANTA BARBARA, California, January 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Despite finishing flat, the U.S. multifamily sector enjoyed a solid year in 2018. The $1,419 average national rent in December, unchanged from the previous month, capped a year in which rents grew by 3.2%, according to a survey of 127 markets by Yardi® Matrix.

Rents have increased by 31% since January 2011 and have grown by at least 2.9% every year except one since then. While acknowledging concerns that the unusually long cycle has played out, a report on the survey cites "reasons to believe multifamily fundamentals will remain vigorous in 2019 and beyond."

Chief among thoe reasons is ongoing strong demand fed by a growing cohort of prime renter-age individuals, robust job growth and social factors such as student loan debt that limits first-time homebuyers.

The year-over-year rent growth leaders in December were virtually unchanged from November, with Las Vegas, Phoenix, California's Inland Empire and Atlanta again occupying the top spots. San Jose, Calif., edged out Orlando, Fla., for fifth place.
