Silver Bay has joined NRHC under a newly-developed membership structure designed to provide expanded opportunities to owner-operators of varying sizes, service-providers and academic researchers interested in joining NRHC.

Reflecting on this upcoming recruitment effort, NRHC Board President and Invitation Homes CEO John Bartling states, “This is an exciting time for the single-family rental industry. We’ve seen a significant level of growth and a real effort to professionalize what has traditionally been a fragmented marketplace. As more and more Americans are choosing to rent and the single-family rental industry is maturing, the National Rental Home Council is itself growing. We are delighted to welcome Silver Bay and look forward to their leadership as we invite a broad range of industry participants to join NRHC, reap the benefits of membership and make important contributions to continued evolution of the industry.”
