Why should I invest in the Tampa multifamily market?

“This was the only market where the dollar per unit actually went up between 2023 and 2022,” shares Joe LaFleur, founder and multifamily broker at 100Units. “Their negative rent growth is only .5% which is, to me absolutely astonishing, one of the best in the Florida markets.”

“The deal sizes that are happening are significantly smaller as a total deal size. They’re down from 94 million to 36 million. It’s roughly 35%, but the actual price per unit has gone up for negative rent growth. They are basically saying now is the worst part of the rental market for Tampa Bay, MSA, and then immediately starting in 2024, boom, we’re already back to the more normalized two to 4% rent growth right away.”
