Median Lease inched up slightly over the month of May and it’s the all time high. Average Lease also went back up slightly and close to $1,300/month. Days on Market (DOM) decreased again and it is now only 31 days and the lowest of 2014.
Rent Check Quotient is at the range of 30% – 36% in a normal market. RCQ has been coming down from 66% in the beginning of 2014 to 40% for the month of May 2014. However, the mumber of leases is still on the high side and it needs to be monitored closely.
