The Fall 2006 Sunrise Multifamily Rental Market Report© released today by Sunrise Management & Consulting, AMO, finds consistent average rental rate growth throughout the Northeast markets. Only markets in Rhode Island and Vermont experienced decreases in rates over the previous period. The fall survey found growth in all segments of the New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine markets.

•The New York Markets had healthy to moderate growth across all regions, led in the eastern regions with average rent gains of $32 in Mid-Hudson, $21 in the Capital Region, and $20 in the North Country (Plattsburgh). Western regions had more moderate growth, led by the Syracuse and Buffalo markets, which both posted $9 average gains.
•Massachusetts, which was flat in the previous report, recorded growth in both western and eastern regions, led by a $31 increase in average rental rates in the greater Metro Boston markets.

•The Rhode Island market, which had recorded a significant $60 average rental rate increase in the previous survey, saw a market correction that resulted in a $13 decrease in average rate.
•Maine reported a substantial $20 gain in average rental rate, while New Hampshire posted a moderate $8 gain.
"This is the most consistent market growth, in terms of the number of communities reporting increases, that we have found since beginning the Sunrise Market surveys," said Jesse Holland, CPM, President of Sunrise Management & Consulting, AMO, "While we found continued use of market concessions, even in markets with growing rental structures, we did see a growing trend in properties not including utilities in those concessions."
