- When examining concessions, a full 37% of rental transactions brokered by Citi Habitats offered a free month’s rent and/or payment of the broker fee to entice new tenants in January – up slightly from 35% in December. Looking year-over-year however, their prevalence increased substantially. In January 2016, only 17% of leases offered a move-in incentive.
“We remain in an uneasy equilibrium. Tenants are still very price-sensitive – while landlords continue to resist lowering rents – but begrudgingly, they still transact,” explained Gary Malin, President of Citi Habitats. “It’s a value-driven market now. The dynamics of our city have changed in that apartment-seekers are much more open to a variety of neighborhoods. They want to know what’s out there before they sign a lease, and they expect a deal.”
