Rents continue to tick up heading into summer months.
In March 2023, rent increases on lease renewals for market-rate apartments in NYC ticked up to 10.8% compared to 20% a year before and 10.2% in February 2023. Increases on lease renewals have stabilized compared to 2022, where the market saw steep corrections in rent and 20%+ increases were standard. However, the majority of lease renewals are still in the sub-5% range. Meaning, landlords are increasing rents less than 5% when their tenants are up for renewal. Our recommendation to both renters and landlords is to compare the renewals they are receiving/giving to the numbers below so they can assess if the pricing is aligned with the rest of the market.
