Multifamily Market Update – West Los Angeles Q1 2024 vs. Q1 2023

Last Updated: April 26, 2024By


The West Los Angeles apartment market in Q1 2024 witnessed a couple of shifts compared to the same period in 2023. While the median price per square foot (PSF) increased by 5%, the median price per unit experienced a marginal decline of 2%. Concurrently, there was a slight uptick in the median capitalization rate of 31 basis points (bps).

Despite these fluctuations, renter demand displayed signs of stability, with the effective rent per unit remaining relatively unchanged, even amidst a modest increase of 43 bps in the overall vacancy rate. Transaction volume however, witnessed a substantial decline of 63%. Totaling a mere 11 transactions for the period, indicative of a more conservative investment landscape.

Looking ahead, we anticipate a continued stabilization in pricing as investors adapt to higher interest rates and the economy shows signs of stability. Furthermore, with expectations of the Federal Reserve decreasing interest rates beginning in Q3 2024, we anticipate an uptick in transaction volume in the coming quarters.
