In 2023, rent rises have gained momentum. However, the rate of increase is below the rate of inflation. Taking inflation into account, May rents are 11% below the national real rent index’s record high in August 2019, Portfolio reports.

The rental market has also seen an increase in supply, which can be seen as a prelude to the summer season, Portfolio explains. In mid-June, tenants in Budapest and nationwide had 14-18% more apartments for rent to choose from. The national rental supply consists of more than 11,800 apartments and houses for rent.
