America is becoming a Rentership Society, with declining homeownership and rising demand for rentals

  • The single-family rental asset class is $4+ trillion in value and completely fragmented
  • Rents are rising and rental vacancy rates are falling across the country
  • Still a significant amount of physically distressed assets in the market providing opportunity for those who can manage such assets
  • Despite pockets of recovery, markets in most of the country continue to have surpluses of distressed single-family housing inventory in general
  • The homeownership rate has fallen to 63.4% from a high of 69.2%. The effective rate (not including delinquent borrowers) is closer to 60%
