Mutlifamily market information for Portland Oregon:

Some newly remote workers are leaving pricey coastal cities for less dense, less expensive options, and the Portland metro area seems to be reaping the benefits of that trend. Rental demand was on solid footing as leasing activity surged in late-2020 with pent-up demand in suburban submarkets like Vancouver. To meet the need for more housing, builders delivered nearly 6,000 units in the Portland region in 2020 and that total has increased each of the past five years. The wave of mostly high-end supply spurred legislative changes to address affordability: inclusionary housing in 2017 and statewide rent control in 2019.

Builders are eyeing other markets:

While construction persists, though tapering, in urban submarkets, builders are pivoting to submarkets like Vancouver.  This is where projects are not subject to Oregon’s housing regulations. Oversupply of about 300 units metrowide resulted in occupancy dropping to 95.1% in first quarter.  This could result in a 20 basis point drop year over year. In the 1st Quarter after years of steady growth, average apartment effective rent in the metro slid 0.3% since March 2020 to $1,439. Even with the decline, some renters struggled to pay rent. Between April 1 to 20, 2021, 90.9% of renter households made a full or partial rental payment, down from 95.0% one year ago.

Portland Oregon Apartment Market Data for the first Quarter of 2021:

Apartment inventory grew 2.8 percent in 2020, up from a 2.5 percent hike one year earlier. Since 2017, East Portland has received the greatest portion of the new units. Deliveries will remain heightened as there are another 9,300 rentals underway with completions scheduled into 2022. Strong demand for rentals in the second half of 2020 dropped metrowide vacancy to 4.4 percent at year end.  New inventory contributed to Class A vacancy rising 160 basis points to 7.7 percent. The Class B and Class C rates dipped 70 basis points to 4.0 percent and 30 basis points to 2.6 percent, respectively. Following a 4.2 percent surge in 2019, the average effective rent held steady in 2020 at $1,427 per month.  However, there was wide variation among classes. Rising vacancy in Class A cut rent 5.2 percent.  While the average rate in Class B and Class C properties rose 0.9 and 1.6 percent, respectively.

Average Unit Price in recent sales increase:

Strong investor interest at year end contributed to the average price climbing 4 percent in 2020 to above $200,000 per unit for the first time. Since 2015, the price has jumped more than 50 percent; however, entry costs still remain at least 24 percent below other larger West Coast metros. The average cap rate, meanwhile, has held in the mid-5 percent range during this time.
