Rents Skyrocket at Highest Rate in Almost a Decade

20160720-Share-STM

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) was released by the Labor Department last week. An analysis by Market Watch revealed the cost of rent was 3.8% higher than a year ago for the second straight month in June. That’s the strongest yearly price gain since 2007.

上週勞工部公佈了最新的消費者價格指數(CPI),通過市場觀察分析顯示,六月份租金比去年同期持續兩個月多了3.8%,這是自2007年以來最大的年度價格漲幅。

This coincides with a report released earlier this month in which AxioMetrics announced that rents are continuing to increase in 2016. The report revealed:

這與本月初發布的一份報告不謀而合,AxioMetrics表示,租金在2016年將持續增漲,報告顯示:

  • There was a 3.7% increase in effective rents in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period last year.
    2016年第二季度租金比去年同期增漲了3.7%。
  • That the effective rent growth this quarter compared to last quarter was 2.3%.
    本季度租金比去年同期增漲了2.3%。
  • Annual effective rent growth was positive in 49 of the top 50 markets, based on number of units. Only Houston was negative, at -1.4%, as the fallout from energy-industry job losses and excess construction continues.
    前50名的市場地區中,有49個地區每年租金持續增漲,只有休斯頓租金跌了1.4%,原因為持續的能源行業工作流失餘波和過度的土地開發施工。

Here is a graph to illustrate the rate of increase over the last several years:
