The Draw of Single Family Rental Properties
In today’s market, single-family rental properties have become increasingly attractive to investors. In fact, SFR investments are currently the fastest-growing segment of the housing market. This makes sense when you consider that more than 60 percent of the United States’ housing stock is comprised of single-family detached homes, mostly in suburban neighborhoods.
After a burst in single-family home construction in the early 2000s, followed by the recession and subsequent foreclosure crisis, many families found themselves with a sudden need to rent, while homes that were once owned now suddenly needed occupants. Those circumstances, coupled with the fact that the millennial generation is now leading the market, it’s no surprise that suburban SFRs, in particular, are booming.
These properties are a great option for young families seeking a convenient, but more spacious location without the commitment associated with home ownership. But the appeal of single-family rentals is popular among all age groups and circumstances, from new college grads seeking flexibility before settling down to aging baby boomers who no longer want to deal with the upkeep that comes with owning their own home.
Aside from the fact that SFR investors have a wide range of tenant options to choose from, single-family rentals bring a great deal of advantages including steady cash flow, the potential for long-term appreciation, leverage, diversified exit strategies, huge tax write-offs, and more. It’s not just experienced investors in the SFR market either; these properties are easy for new real estate investors to buy and hold as well. Single-family rental properties are a great source of passive income and a fantastic addition to investors’ retirement portfolios, so it’s really no surprise that they’re such an attractive investment these days.
