Los AngelesUS multifamily rent growth waned in the beginning of 2018. According to research from Rent Café, apartment rents increased 2% in the start of the year, the weakest growth for the same period of time since 2010. Overall, cities with the largest apartment units saw the most rent growth, including Las Vegas, Orlando, Denver and Los Angeles, all of which saw 4% to 6% rent growth. Manhattan, Austin, DC, and Chicago showed no year-over-year rent growth. Detroit beat Las Vegas for the highest rent growth in a large city with a 5.3% increase. Stockton and Tampa had the highest rent growth in the mid-sized cities category, and markets like Reno, Odessa and Yonkers made the top of the list for the small cities category.
