June’s renewal rent growth and new lease rent growth are the highest seen in this cycle, according to MPF Research. Renewal lease rent growth was up 5.2% in June, meaning renters on average paid 5.2% more than they did previously to stay in the same units. Several markets in which Hamilton Zanze is invested came in the top 20 nationally for renewal rent growth:

#2 Portland: 8.2%
#5 Denver: 7.5%
#6 Seattle: 7.4%
#9 Phoenix: 6.4%
#13 Las Vegas: 5.4%
#16 Houston: 5.3%
#17 Dallas: 5.2%

The Texas market rankings are significant, as they indicated that apartment owners are not losing renters despite high supply, inspiring operators to increase rents.

Nationally, 50.2% of renters with expiring leases chose to renew, a bit higher than normal for June but down slightly year-over-year. Overall, renewal rent growth rates were much higher than pre-recession averages, despite all the rent growth seen in this cycle and all the new supply that has come online in recent years.
