Top 20 Markets for Forecasted Multifamily Rent Growth

Even as rent growth slows down compared to earlier in the year, many markets are still seeing strong numbers.

Amid rapidly rising interest rates and still murky economy outlook, the multifamily market in the U.S. is beginning to feel the impact. Multifamily rents continued to rise this October, by 8.2 percent year-over-year to an average of $1,727. However, the growth was the slowest recorded since mid-2021, according to the October National Multifamily Report from data firm Yardi Matrix.

Yet even in this environment of slower growth, 25 of the 30 top U.S. markets posted multifamily rent growth of 5.0 percent or more. And many of the top markets have reached rent growth closer to 10.0 or 11.0 percent. Here’s Yardi Matrix’ breakdown of where those markets are, along with forecasts for their multifamily rent growth for the full year 2022.
