The State of Tucson's Apartment Market: TREND Report

Posted on Mon, Sep 11, 2017

The Tucson apartment market has been driven by a multitude of factors. The first factor that is driving the apartment market is that higher paying jobs are entering the Tucson economy. Tucson’s job growth remained relatively stagnant the past five years with median household income in the metro area 15.5% below that of the U. S. Several recent, high-profile jobs announcements included hundreds of highly-skilled and highly-compensated positions. The second wave of employers contracting with and supporting these primary employers will broaden the opportunities at all levels. As reported by the MAP Dashboard project, Tucson’s MSA enjoys a lower cost of living than many of its peer cities in the West and was 3.0% below the nation, driven largely by rental rates (2015 data).

Mid Year Tucson Multifamily Update

Posted on Tue, Aug 16, 2016

Tucson’s multifamily market experienced minimal change from the previous quarter. The vacancy rate for stabilized units in Tucson increased 2 basis points from the previous quarter to a rate of 6.83%. This figure is very encouraging, given the seasonal nature of the Tucson apartment rental market.

Job Growth Spells Good News for Tucson Apartment Market

Posted on Tue, May 10, 2016

No better news could have been reported for the Tucson apartment market than job growth, which translated into the strongest improvement in fundamentals in years.  The vacancy rate for stabilized units in Tucson dropped 100 basis points (bp) from the previous quarter to 6.8%.  This is the lowest first quarter rate since 2007. North Tucson, comprising Northeast Tucson (3.8%) and Oro Valley/Catalina (4.7%) reported the lowest vacancy rates. The University area experienced a 520 bps increase in vacancy, ending the quarter at 11.9%. One area of concern in this submarket is the potential of overbuilding in the student housing sector.  In addition, older units, especially those in outlying areas, are losing ground in the form of lease-up and rents to newer units.
