Rent increases on lease renewals continue to stabilize, with the exception of Brooklyn

In October 2022, rent increases on lease renewals for market-rate apartments in NYC were 5.9% compared to 8% a year before. After a busy summer season, rents have started to cool, with 74% of renewals reporting an increase of less than 5%. Notably, Brooklyn’s increases in renewals continue to outpace other boroughs – the average October renewal in Brooklyn saw a 10% increase compared to just 4% in Manhattan. This could be an early sign of heightened demand in the borough.
