Matrix Monthly Reports Rent Growth Acceleration in June

Average rents rose 6.3 percent in June, hitting a record level of year-over-year growth.

Santa Barbara, Calif.—The June 2015 edition of Matrix Monthly, a report on U.S. apartment market trends from Yardi®, documents a robust 6.3 percent year-over-year increase in average rents across the country.  Rents rose by 1.3 percent month-over-month in June, the largest increase since the last recession, and are now at an all-time high of $1,150.

Continued rent escalation in San Francisco, Denver, Jacksonville, Fla., and Portland, Ore., accounted for much of the average rent increase in June. Demand for higher-end product also contributed to this trend.

Matrix Monthly is a monthly survey of apartment owners in the 100 U.S. markets covered by Yardi’s Pierce-Eislen business unit.  Brokers, sponsors, banks and equity sources that underwrite multifamily investment transactions use the report as a business development tool.
