The 10 Markets Leading the US Economy in Double-Digit Rent Growth

The United States continues to revitalize itself leading into July of 2021. Vaccine rates are rising, an increasing number of states are beginning to re-open, and multifamily rent is following the trend as well with an average increase in rent growth in multiple markets. According to the May 2021 Yardi Matrix Multifamily Report, national rents have increased by 2.5% year-over-year in May 2021; a number that mirrors pre-pandemic rent growth rates from March of 2020. These are excellent indicators the market is in recovery and multifamily investing remains strong and stable.

Furthermore, with 2.5% being the average, there are several key markets exceeding this number even more with double-digit percentages in growth. While there are some investors that chose to invest in their own “backyard,” there is validity to expanding your portfolio out-of-state, as key markets pose better opportunities for higher ROI’s.
