Market Snapshot: Single-Family Rental and Build-for-Rent

The growth of the SFR asset class is expected to outpace multifamily, office, retail, storage, and hospitality growth within the next few years. BFR properties, a sub-segment of the SFR market, are purpose-built housing to be operated as single-family rental investments. This increasingly popular concept within the multifamily industry currently makes up nearly ten percent of new homes built. The rapidly growing BFR market will continue expanding as more residents prefer to rent single-family homes with yards and upscale amenities on a long-term basis. Our team is always up to date on all of the latest trends and is providing our clients with insights to steer transaction decisions.
