Economists anticipate Dallas-Fort Worth rents will rise 5.3% this year to an average of $1,395 per month, according to Marcus & Millichap’s annual investment forecast report, which utilizes CoStar Group Inc., Real Capital Analytics and RealPage Inc. data.
That would be the region’s second-fastest growth rate in the past six years. The firm doesn’t expect an increase quite as sharp as the 12% seen from 2020 to 2021.
