Single-Family Rent Growth by Price Tier & Property Type

Higher-priced single-family rentals had higher rent growth than lower-priced rentals.  The high-priced rent tier is defined as properties with prices greater than 125% of the region’s median rent.  The low-priced rent tier has rental prices less than 75% of the region’s median rent.

Take a look:

  • Low tier – +9.5% y/y
  • Low-middle tier – +10.1
  • Higher-middle tier – +11.3%
  • High-tier – +11.4% y/y

Detached single-family dwellings (free-standing residential buildings) have been the preferred property type since the pandemic onslaught.  Annual rent growth for detached rentals hit +12.3% y/y in October.

Attached single-family dwellings (duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, townhomes, row-houses, condominiums and co-ops) in higher density areas saw an annual rent growth of +9% y/y in October, according to CoreLogic’s SRI.

“Owner-Occupants Being Pushed Out”

John Burns, CEO of Joh Burns Real Estate Consulting, said, “Owner-occupants are being pushed out by investors in certain markets.  It’s significant in Phoenix.  It’s significant in Charlotte and significant in Atlanta, right around the $250,000 to $400,000 range.”

Housing starts for single-family rentals, particularly in outlying suburbs where these units are most prevalent, hit record levels in Q3 2021, according to the National Association of Home Builders.

Vacancy rates on single-family rental homes are now at a 25-year low that reflects the increasingly competitive and pricey nature of the for-sale housing market.
