Metro Phoenix Rental Rites Are Climbing

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives - Premier Marketing Group

The article, Metro Phoenix had the 4th-highest rise in rental rates in the United States but 10,000 new apartments are on the way, announces that metro Phoenix has seen a constant rise in rent.

The national research firm Axiometrics states that the Valley's average apartment rent has climbed 22 of the past 23 months. The average apartment rent now stands at $924, which is $70 more than it was just a year ago.

The demand for rentals escalated during the housing crash due to people losing their homes to foreclosure and needing to rent. Millennials are also adding to the renting pool because many of them aren't ready or can't buy a home. Salaries are also increasing, but not as quickly as rent. Rental rates are up 8% while wages are  up 2.4% in Metro Phoenix, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Have a great day!
