Yardi Says Impact from Pandemic Tightening Its Grip on Economy

By Brad Beckett 
According to the latest Yardi Matrix
, the average U.S. rent in March was $1,474 (up $6), however they warn that major impacts from the spread of the Cornonavirus will start showing up in April.  That being said, Yardi says rents increased 2.9% in March on a year-over-year basis, as rent growth cooled somewhat from the first two months of 2020.  But they emphasize that we’ve clearly entered a period of turmoil:
“As unemployment claims eclipse records and government stimulus reaches unseen heights, the question arises: Who will be able to pay rent in the coming months?”“Both private and public responses to the growing crisis are affecting the multifamily industry, and April 1 is likely to be a bellwether for the months to come.
