Single-family Rentals Drive all 2021 Rent Increases

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 6:00pm

According to Jonas Bordo, CEO & Co-Founder of Dwellsy, "Due to COVID19, renters want more space and control over access to their homes, and this has led to substantial new demand for single family rentals. The supply of these properties is relatively unchanged--maybe even down, due to the hot single-family sales market--so rent for this asset type has gone through the roof in 2021." Dwellsy's data shows that single family rental prices are up by 15%, driving an overall increase in median rent by 9.6%.

Key Points: 
  • This year's overall rent increases are coming solely from single-family rentals, while apartment home rental prices are actually decreasing.
  • The supply of these properties is relatively unchanged--maybe even down, due to the hot single-family sales market--so rent for this asset type has gone through the roof in 2021."
