Residential rents will increase in 2023 despite global economic uncertainty
The United States, England and Singapore top the list of countries in which residential rents have increased the most in recent months.

In the case of the United States, New York was the city that led the list for the third consecutive quarter. Despite annual growth falling nearly 40%, limited inventories and continued demand kept rentals high.
For example, according to StreetEasy, rental properties in Manhattan were down 5% during the last quarter, but 65% less compared to the times of the pandemic.
Increases in residential rents globally
Singapore ranks second in the list of countries with the highest increase in residential rents, with a 23% growth in luxury rentals in the last 12 months. This, thanks mainly to the opening of borders, which together with the introduction of new visas to attract the best talent from around the world, have generated an increase in demand.
The new rules announced in September 2022 mean that those looking to sell their private home and buy a resale flat not subsidized by the Housing and Development Board (HDB) now have to wait 15 months. Policy change that adds to the demand for rent, since the sellers choose to rent in the provisional.
Finally, London completes the podium of the cities with the highest increase in income. Although England’s capital saw a 19% increase in the year to Q3 2022, annual rental growth is down from 27% last quarter, reflecting the slowdown from the summer rental peak. But the demand remains strong.
Data from Knight Frank shows that the number of potential new tenants was 60% above the five-year average (excluding 2020) in October, while new listings were down by about a third.
