Market Intelligence: Q1 Florida Update
Florida was one of the nation's multifamily performance leaders over the past year with exceptional demand driving never-before-seen rent growth and occupancy readings.
But sluggish leasing activity challenged Florida markets in the second half of 2022, resulting in some questions as the 2023 peak leasing season approaches.
Can these markets maintain enough demand to match aggressive construction activity in the next 12 to 24 months? Do other factors like slowing migration, economic uncertainty and rising interest rates influence renter and investor outlooks in the coming year?
Multifamily markets in this educational update include:
- Cape Coral/Fort Myers
- Destin (Crestview)
- Deltona-Daytona Beach
- Fort Lauderdale
- Palm Bay
- Panama City
- Port St. Lucie
- West Palm Beach
