In April, the median monthly asking rent nationwide increased +15.1% y/y from March’s +16.7% record high.

Asking Rent Growth “Down” to +15.1% in April from +16.7% in March

For the first time in one year, asking rents across the country slid to +15.1% in April from the record-high +17% in March.

“The fact that rents are growing at a slower pace may be a very early sign that the Fed’s tactic of raising interest rates to quell inflation is working,” said Redfin’s Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather.  “However, rents are still growing at nearly double the rate of overall inflation.  Landlords in hot migration destinations like Austin, Portland and South Florida are charging new tenants +30% more than last year’s rent.”
