This year may see flattening rents—or at least tenant affordability issues—in several asset classes. Significant rent growth in nearly all asset classes has been a theme of the last several years, but the extreme pricing may be hitting a ceiling for some tenants, according to Jeff Rinkov, CEO and president of Lee & Associates. While his outlook remains positive this year and for the foreseeable future, he says that plateauing rents may be around the corner.
