Several factors have contributed to this eleven-month long run-up in rent price gains. Those factors include:
- Shortage of available rentals
- Low unemployment rate which dropped to 3.8% in February
- Skyrocketing home price increases, up +20% y/y in February, which make many potential buyers rent instead of purchasing a house
- Unprecedented high demand of rental units as a result of being locked out from purchase market
Molly Boesel, principal economist with CoreLogic, said, “Single-family rents rose at more than three times the rate from a year earlier and more than four times the pre-pandemic rate. Strong unemployment and low supply have pushed single-family rental vacancy rates to low levels and have contributed to high growth in rents.”
