Rent Prices Rose Slightly In Suffolk

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty

Rents prices rose slightly in Suffolk and Hampton Roads last year.  Good news for landlords and not so good for renters.  They were up almost 1.5% from April to Oct and the vacancy rate is down to 6.9%.  That probably will go up after new figures are in for the next quarter.  More houses were bought and taken out of the rental market.  That should drive vacancy rates down and rents up.  More investors are being foreclosed on at the same time. 

Planned new construction for apartments dropped dramatically as well from nearly 3,800 to 1,500.  That is a really big fall off from April 2009.

Gene * Charlottesville rents for SFRs will go UP this summer.  We have 500+ DoD families moving into the area and FEW rental homes available that are LARGE enough for them...apt/condo units are still plentiful; however, I will increase my SFR rents on renewal by $65 to $200
