Is Softening of Apartment Market Sign of Future?

National vacancies rose by 10 basis points in Q1 2017, to 4.3%, according to the latest research from Reis. Yet occupancies have remained tight, despite the flat year-over-year vacancy numbers and in consideration of the onslaught of deliveries.

Asking rents and effective rent growth are both challenging landlords, as they are discovering stable occupancies are coming at a price.

Reis reports that asking rents grew by just 0.3% in the first quarter, while effective rents rose by only 0.2%. That’s the weakest performance since Q1 2010 as the recovery commenced.
