Summer Rent Increases Are Back
In June 2023, rent increases on lease renewals for market-rate apartments in NYC ramped up to 12.2% compared to 21.5% a year before and just 4.9% in May 2023. Rent increases are back in double-digit territory as summer demand pushed prices higher. While sub-5% rent increases are still prevalent, just 41% of lease renewals were in this range compared to 78% last month. Notably, apartments priced $5-7k per month experienced the lowest increases at 4.8%, while apartments priced less than $2500 experienced 16% increases on average.
