Charleston’s multifamily demand during 2019 sparked new multifamily construction. Over the past two years, there have been 7,026 units delivered with 9,042 units of absorption. The current occupancy rate is 94.15%, therefore, few units are available to rent.

Key Takeaways

  • 1,866 units will deliver in 2022
  • Over the past two years, absorption has outpaced new construction deliveries


If the current trend of leasing more apartments than deliveries continues, a new wave of multifamily construction will likely be necessary to accommodate future demand. Monthly rental rates steadily increased quarter-over-quarter as quality apartments were completed.
