While rent price growth is predicted to cool somewhat in 2022, Molly Boesel, a principal economist with CoreLogic, said, “As rents make up one-third of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), rapid rent growth helped push up inflation in 2021.  While rent growth should ease in 2022, inflation may remain elevated for much of the year.”
