Report | United States Multifamily Investment Outlook - Q3 2016


​The record-setting length of job gains domestically continues to draw people into economy. These accumulated gains have supported years of positive absorption and accompanying rent growth in the multifamily sector. While national annual rent growth softened 20 basis points year-over-year to 4.1 percent, this figure has remained above 4.0 percent for eight consecutive quarters, showing sustained resilience. 

As single-family housing has driven residential construction gains in 2016, multifamily housing starts have declined 5.1 percent year-to-date. Additionally, the 369,000 year-to-date average of multifamily starts pales the 1970 – 2000 average by 4.6 percent.

Multifamily investment sales of $31.6 billion in the third quarter of 2016 represents an 8.2-percent increase year-to-date and the fifth straight quarter of sales in excess of $30.0 billion, driven by secondary markets activity.
