Multifamily Rent and Demand Vary Among Classes and Regions

Apr 5, 2022, 15:07 PM by Nathan Adkins
Nationally, Class C multifamily properties have set the pace for rent growth, outstripping Class A or B properties. However, the national average is heavily influenced by large, coastal metro markets, where renters compete for a limited supply of value-add Class C units.

Class A and B rents are growing faster than C rents in many Sun Belt markets. This has been fueled by an influx of new residents into these markets, where they can rent higher-quality space more affordably than in the large metros. Resident migration has incentivized new construction and value-add renovations in the Sun Belt.
