Multifamily market date for Los Angles:

Metro takes initial steps toward recovery. Los Angeles entered 2021 with the second-highest unemployment rate nationally, having recovered less than half of the 660,000 jobs lost last April. The metro’s economy, however, is beginning to benefit from the partial rollback of COVID-19 restrictions that has allowed certain companies to rehire. The ongoing vaccine rollout should further reduce restrictions at restaurants and businesses and allow the reopening of entertainment venues and schools. Widespread vaccination could also boost tourism this summer, aiding the hard-hit leisure and hospitality sector. Significant job creation within this segment could pave the way for a recovery that closes the gap with better performing markets. Once the labor market improves, conditions could again favor apartment owners as more than half of metro households rent.

Submarkets brace for potential disruptions. Supply additions and the flexibility among higher-earning renters to relocate via remote working arrangements have lifted Class A vacancy to a high mark. With completions intensifying in 2021, operators will rely on concessions to prevent a larger increase from occurring. The Greater Downtown Los Angeles and Westside Cities submarkets will be most impacted by new supply. Outlying cities and closer-in areas south and east of downtown will be notably less exposed. These Class C-heavy areas, however, may record upticks in vacancy once eviction moratoriums and rent deferment legislation expire.

Follow new rent control laws closely:

Going forward the new rent control regulations in Los Angeles and California may plan into a long-term negative impact for the multifamily sector.  However, at the moment, current market conditions are not influenced by the bill due to lack of perceivable rent growth approaching 5.0 percent plus market inflation.  The investor should be mindful of the impact of this new rent control as well as other rent regulation initiatives in the works.

Los Angeles Multifamily Outlook for 2021:

The metro recaptures more than one-fourth of the 417,500 positions lost last year, translating to employment growth of 2.6 percent. This annual rate of job creation will slightly trail the national increase. After finalizing more than 10,600 units last year, developers will grow Los Angeles County’s apartment inventory by nearly 1.3 percent in 2021. Mid-Wilshire and Hollywood will register the largest increases in rental supply this year. Vacancy climbs to 5.0 percent this year as a record volume of apartment deliveries outpace demand. Still, renters will absorb roughly 7,700 units in 2020, extending a streak of positive absorption that began in 2010. Rising unit availability in higherpriced submarkets and elevated supply additions will limit landlords’ ability to push rental rates, dropping the average effective rent to $2,175 per month. Last year, the metro’s average rent decreased by 4.8 percent.
