5 Reasons Why the Demand for Single-Family Rental Housing Remains High, by Harold Willig


A recent study from The Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University (JCHS) reported that the share of US households that rent their housing now stands at a 20-year high.

The report highlighted five trends why investors in single-family homes may expect continued high monthly income and long-term returns from their rental properties.

1. Rental growth is likely to remain strong as members of the huge millennial population enter the housing market.

2. Millennials “will form over 20 million new households between 2015 and 2025, and most of these households will be renters.”

3. A higher percentage of older households are now renters. “Although making up just 25% of renters in 2014, households aged 55 and over contributed fully 42% of renter household growth over the preceding decade,” according to the study.

4. The increase in single-family home development in the 1990s and 2000s (more than 12 million SFHs were built) “the highest level in any decade since the 1970s.”

5. The market share for SFH renters is now more than 35%, compared to a historical average of about 30%.

Other trends highlighted in the report include: a) The typical single-family rental home is 10 years older and one-fourth smaller than the typical owner-occupied home; and b) People living alone made up a 21% of single-family renters.
