Houston concession rates Houston’s class-B and -C units logged sizable concession rates in the second quarter.

HOUSTON—While the percentage of US units offering rental concessions is at some of its lowest levels in nearly two decades, some markets–mostly the country’s big construction centers–are offering concessions at notably higher rates, according to a study by RealPage. After peaking at 65.8% in fourth quarter 2009, the percentage of stabilized apartments in the US offering concessions has been on a steady downward trajectory.
