Portland and Mount Hood Panorama. Portland, Oregon, USA.

Every year I like to see what markets in the nation took the top spot with annual rent growth. While Portland took the top spot with annual rent growth of 12% in 2015, seven of the top 25 MSAs for apartment rent growth were in California. By taking a look at this article, you can see that there was strong representation form the West Coast and East Coast multifamily markets.
