Cross Border Investments in the U.S.U.S. multifamily investment surges in Q1 2019

Building on a record-breaking 2018, U.S. multifamily investment is experiencing its most active start to a year, with $38.3 billion in transactions in Q1, according to the latest report from leading professional services firm, JLL.

The multifamily sector was the only asset type to post year-over-year gains, lifting its share of total U.S. real estate transaction volumes to 41.5 per cent.

With multifamily absorption keeping pace with unit completions, allowing fundamentals to strengthen for the sixth consecutive quarter, the report cites that nearly 300,000 units were leased up over the past year. The expanding renter base has pushed vacancy rates to a new low of 4.6 per cent, marking a 30.0-basis-point decline from one year ago.

Urban multifamily submarkets saw rent gains accelerate for the seventh consecutive quarter, at 3.3 percent as of Q1 2019. That said, urban submarkets still lag the national growth rate of 4.5 per cent due to heightened completions of luxury and Class A multifamily assets in the urban core.

As a region, the Sun Belt commanded the highest average effective rent growth at 5.5 per cent, led by Las Vegas, Phoenix and Tampa. Concurrently, the Northeast corridor witnessed the largest effective rent growth gains, up nearly 175 basis points from Q1 2018.
