Single-family homes can help address the affordable rental-housing crisis

Traditionally, single-family rentals were owned by small mom-and-pop investors. But in the last four years, institutional investors have entered the space. Once upon a time, multifamily developers would look at anyone proposing to manage a portfolio of scattered single-family rentals as if they had two heads. But new investors have shown that by using proper systems and standardized processes, it is possible to manage single-family rentals in a professional manner and on an institutional scale.
