Single-Family Rentals: How Do Institutional Participants View the Market, and What Data Support Their Views?
The single-family rental market has grown tremendously since the financial crisis, with institutional investors entering what had traditionally been a mom-and-pop space. Since the entry of these new participants, rapid change has been the norm, with evolving financing opportunities, strategies, hot locations, and consolidations. The data talk focused on the recent evolution of the business and the data that have driven those business decisions, as well as what recent data tell us to expect. Our experts have all been researchers in this space: Amherst Capital Management is a US real estate investment specialist; Investability/Rent Range provides rental data and analytics to institutional investors; and NAREIT, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, is the trade association for the real estate investment trust sector, which includes many institutional investors in single-family rentals.
