Single-family rental homes are an essential part of America’s housing economy, providing access to quality, affordably-priced homes ideally-suited to accommodate the diverse lifestyle needs and financial realities of millions of Americans and their families. In a housing market challenged by a stark undersupply of homes and continuing affordability concerns driven by a steady climb in mortgage rates, single-family rental homes are a part of the solution for making housing more accessible.
There is greater demand for housing in the United States today than there has been in decades. By making long-term commitments to the communities in which they invest and build, NRHC member companies – large and small – are providing families with more options for stabilized, quality, and affordably-priced housing in neighborhoods that should be accessible to all Americans. Consider:
- There are 870,000 more renter households today than there were at the beginning of the COVID health pandemic. (Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies)
- In 2020, there were 65,000 entry-level homes built in the United States. During the 1970s the number of entry-level homes built in the United States routinely surpassed 420,000 annually. (Bipartisan Policy Center)
- Over the last five years, the amount of owner-occupied housing in the United States has increased more than 10% while the amount of rental housing has increased just over 2%. (U.S. Census Bureau)
- Between 2018 and 2020 the housing stock deficit increased by 52% as the undersupply of homes in the U.S. soared from 2.5 million units to 3.8 million units. (Freddie Mac)
- The COVID health crisis has led to a surge in migration with 1 in 10 Americans moving to a new market in 2020. Population migration leads to greater demand for rental housing. (Zillow)
