In 2017, 37,000 homes were built as rentals, according to the National Association of Home Builders. That grew to 43,000 last year, or just under 5% of total single-family housing starts. But that is just homes built and held by builders for rent and doesn't include those sold directly to investors, so the numbers are likely larger and growing more quickly.


"I think that these funds, these investor groups are looking at a cultural move away from your garden apartment with elevators, swimming pools, tennis courts and common areas," Ellenburg said. "Homeownership is looking less desirable to some, particularly in the affordable arena, and they have a chance, for very close to the same price, to rent a three-bedroom, two-bath or a four-bedroom, three-bath home and are able to call it their own."
I used OpenRent because I was interested in the service they offered to advertise my properties on the main portals. Their pricing is affordable and they make the whole thing very simple. I have secured good quality tenants for each property advertised in a very short space of time. Their contact with me has been fast and efficient. I would definitely recommend OpenRent and they are my first choice for advertising from now on.
