Apartment rents trending up nationally
“This month’s data represents the clearest indication yet that rent prices are rebounding in markets across the country,” Apartment List said in the report. “For comparison, in the previous three years, the average month-over-month rent growth in February was 0.3 percent. In other words, the month’s increase was more than double the prior-year average for this time of year.
“The data continue to exhibit significant regional variation, but the days of plummeting rents in pricey coastal markets appear to be coming to an end, with cities such as San Francisco and Seattle experiencing positive month-over-month growth for the first time since the start of the pandemic.”
