Daily Data 📈
At The Grind, we care about distilling the data so you can make sense of the headlines for yourself. One headline that should interest you is the rise in construction to meet housing demand. So, how does this impact single-family residences (SFR), and specifically build-to-rent (BTR) single-family residences?
- Multi-family units are leading the way in new construction, while BTR SFRs make up about every one in ten new builds in-the works and 6% of land purchased in Q4 of 2021 for building on this year.
- Many of these SFRs are part of amenity-rich subdivisions with central property management services. Findings confirm that "professional" or property management services "with resources" put renters at ease.
- According to one source, “The housing shortage, as well as long-term systemic demographic drivers, are expected to continue to push demand and rents higher estimated at 4 percent to 8 percent in 2022 alone."

Why the Build-to-Rent Model Is Here to Stay
Out of the pandemic came the surge of the build-to-rent model: a type of real estate investment in which homes are built or bought as rental communities that offer the best of rental amenities combined with the desirable SFR lifestyle.
But don’t be fooled: build-to-rent isn’t all hype. This is an emerging model here to stay. The pandemic might have kicked things into high gear, but BTR was always going to rise.
