Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: Apartment Vacancy Rate Declined in Q4
A brief excerpt: Reis reported that the apartment vacancy rate was at 4.7% in Q4 2021, down from 4.8% in Q3, and down from a pandemic peak of 5.4% in Q1 2021.
Reis also reported the asking rents were up 2.8% in Q4 compared to Q3, and up 11.9% year-over-year. Rents were down year-over-year through Q2 2021 (due to the pandemic) and picked up sharply in Q3. Even with the recent surge in rents, rents are only up 4.5% annualized over the last 2 years (since rents decreased early in the pandemic).There is much more in the article.
