Where are rental prices headed in the next few years? Typically, rental prices increase about 3% annually. Recent figures, however, are showing dramatic increases in rental pricing with 5.1% increases nationwide.
Multi-family housing demands as well as single-family rentals have increased since 2007 per Freddie Mac. With the theory of supply and demand, it is expected that rental prices will continue to increase substantially in the next few years.
The cost of owning a home now (with lower mortgage rates and home costs) might be the better alternative to a rental apartment or home that is more than likely to increase in price yearly.
