Job Gains Boost Yardi Matrix’ National Rent Forecast for 2024

Month-over-month rents rise after five consecutive months of declines

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Feb. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Multifamily asking rents broke the five-month streak of sequential average declines in January, rising 0.07 percent, shows a new special report from Yardi® Matrix.

Of the 142 markets tracked, last month 61 posted declines, 71 marked increases and 10 remained flat. Largest increases continued to occur in midsize cities in the Northeast and South, including in White Plains, NY; Buffalo, NY; Birmingham, AL; WorcesterSpringfield, MA; and Columbus, GA. The largest decreases were consistent in Western markets and Florida.

On a national level, by asset class, rents in the Renter-by-Necessity (RBN) segment rose 0.08 percent, outperforming Lifestyle (0.04 percent). The strongest performers in RBN rents, with MoM growth of over 1 percent, were 11 midsize cities in the South and Northeast and four markets in the West.

In the Lifestyle segment, 14 markets posted MoM growth greater than 1 percent, 10 of which were in the South or Midwest and four scattered far from Northeast—Honolulu, the Inland Empire, Miami and the Central Coast.

“Overall performance in asking rents in January was remarkably strong for a month that is generally very weak and often negative, and we expect the trend of RBN rents performing better than Lifestyle rents to continue throughout the year,” say analysts.

The strong job reports and improving consumer confidence have pushed the expected mild recession to the end of this year or beginning of the next year. This has also impacted Yardi Matrix’s national forecast for 2024, up from 0.8 percent to 1.8 percent, but the substantial influx of supply expected to come online this year will dampen rent growth in many of the larger Sun Belt markets.
