From Axiometrics:

Axiometrics Inc., the leading provider of apartment data and market research, reports that at the national level annual effective rent growth slowed to 3.2% in the second quarter of 2013. For comparison, annual effective rent growth in the second quarter of 2012 measured 4.0%. Further, Axiometrics’ data indicates that the effective rent growth rate has slowed for eight consecutive quarters as many Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) are decelerating from very strong growth the previous three years. Peak annual rent growth at the national level during this current cycle was 5.3% in July 2011…

While the national growth rate has been slowly decelerating over the past eight quarters, it should also be noted that the current growth rate is still above the long-term average of 2.1%.

Occupancy at the national level remained strong, measuring 94.7% in the second quarter of 2013. A year ago the occupancy rate stood at 94.3%. The improvement in occupancy has occurred despite an increasing wave of new apartment supply.
