Rent And Operating Trends – Week Of December 10th 2023

The Fed is holding its final meeting of the year this week and they are likely to leave interest rates unchanged. After rapidly increasing interest rates through the first half of the year, the Fed has now kept rates stable since July. Many market prognosticators expect rates to drop next year, with some calling for rate cuts as soon as the spring. Given the strength of the economy, I would not expect to see rate cuts until late next year at the earliest.

Rent And Operating Trends – Week Of December 3rd 2023

The U.S. economy was given another boost last week as Q3 GDP was revised upward to an annualized rate of 5.2%, making the rate of growth last quarter more than double the rate for the first half of this year.

Rent and Operating Trends – Week of November 19th 2023

Is the monetary tightening cycle over? Has the Fed orchestrated the illusive soft landing for our economy, reducing inflation to a sustainable level without sending the nation into recession? The answers to these questions are still yet to be fully determined, however last week’s lower inflation report provides further evidence that future interest rate increases me not be needed.

Rent and Operating Trends – Week of November 12th 2023

The 10-year treasury is down about 35 basis points from its recent high in mid-October as signs of slowing fundamentals in the economy continue to arise. Mortgage rates have also fallen in recent weeks, prompting a slight uptick in demand for mortgages. The recent drop in mortgage rates may bring some renters back into the buyer pool, cutting into multifamily performance, however, I expect this to impact apartment demand only marginally.

October employment growth was weaker than it had been in previous months with new job gains totaling 150,000. August and September gains were revised down, painting a slightly more bleak picture of the employment market than we have seen in recent months.

Despite higher interest rates throughout the quarter, the American consumer continued to spend.

Rent and Operating Trends – Week of October 22nd 2023

In what is perhaps something of a silver lining for the rental housing sector, recent data suggests it is the most expensive time to buy a single family home since the mid 1990s. But, as with all things in the current real estate market, there is more to the story.
