A message from National Rental Home Council executive director Diane Tomb:
When the National Rental Home Council (NRHC) launched four years ago, few realized the important role that single-family rental homes have played for decades in the American housing economy. Today, the 16 million home single-family rental industry is the fastest-growing segment of the housing market, and our members are providing a quality experience to their residents and raising the bar for service across the industry.
At the NRHC’s launch in 2014, we had just four founding members, all owner-operators of single-family rental companies. Today, we’ve grown to nearly 30 members from all sectors of the industry, including owner/operators, vendors, service providers, analysts and legal consultants. Our members have opportunities to network, share best practices and work together to tackle the most pressing challenges facing the industry. Our founders’ vision of an organization that would work on behalf of the entire single-family rental industry, including renters of our members’ homes, has been realized.
Today, as part of our ongoing efforts to advocate and educate on behalf of the industry, we’ve launched a new, refreshed website that reflects the single-family rental sector’s commitment to opening doors for American families. We invite you to explore the new site, which contains information about the NRHC, the single-family rental industry, our advocacy priorities, resources and research and how you can get involved with our organization.
The NRHC believes all Americans should be supported by policies that provide access to quality housing, no matter where they are on the continuum of renting or owning. Like homeowners, renters deserve the same commitment and attention from policymakers. We will continue to advocate here in Washington, D.C., and across all 50 states to ensure renters have access to high-quality housing options and the opportunity to reside in a home of their choice.
The NRHC supports efforts to strengthen neighborhoods by filling an important need in today’s growing rental housing market. As more Americans choose to rent, our members are providing high-quality homes for lease in safe, desirable neighborhoods, offering access to good schools and a lifestyle that might otherwise be out of reach. We hope you’ll join us in our commitment to build a 21st-century housing economy that works for all Americans.
