Why should I invest in the Tampa multifamily market?

“In Tampa, population growth is definitely below the national average, job growth is dead on, and rent growth is basically identical to the national average,” shares Joe LaFleur, multifamily investment advisor at 100Units. “One of the things that’s interesting is that for many years, Tampa Bay had stronger rents than Orlando, and now Orlando has higher rents than Tampa, and that happened give or take a year or so ago. Both have grown higher than the national average, but it’s just interesting that Orlando’s rents have moved up quicker than the Tampa Bay market. Both are expected to continue rent growth.”

“Another interesting factor is that analytics are not predicting negative rent growth for the Tampa Bay market. They’re anticipating zero where rental will just basically be the same. In this particular case in the Tampa Bay market, you had four quarters ago where you were at 22% rent growth, so just going back to zero is significantly higher rent than there was in 2019.”
