Renters finally get some reprieve on rent renewals as increases dip below 2021 levels for the first time this year.
In September 2022, rent increases on lease renewals for market-rate apartments in NYC fell to 5.2% compared to 12.5% in August. After a busy summer season, rents have started to cool, with 76% of renewals reporting an increase of less than 5%. Notably, Brooklyn renewals were 2 percentage points higher than in Manhattan. Few neighborhoods reported double-digit rent increases for September renewals; these include Clinton Hill, Williamsburg, Crown Heights, and Gramercy.
