During the last 15 years and even through the recession, single-family rentals continued to deliver excellent returns through appreciation and rental income. Since 2010, single-family rents have consistently increased by about 3 percent annually, and in the third quarter of 2021 posted the fastest year-over-year increase in the past 16 years.
As demand for the sector has increased significantly driven by changing migration patterns, many investors are shifting their investment strategies to include single-family rental (SFR) and build-to-rent (BTR). In response, Berkadia’s national footprint with unrivaled local expertise has never been more valuable.
At Berkadia, we’ve taken a more coordinated and organized approach to SFR/BTR properties over the past few years, and as a result created a specialty resource to be more harmonized in our efforts.
Berkadia was an early adapter in the SFR & BTR space, and with that, have been able to garner increased interest, but a noticeably diverse range of investors. Berkadia began selling and financing SFR communities in 2012. And, most recently, our involvement has accelerated over the past 24 to 36 months due to demographic shifts boosted by the pandemic.
With many investors shifting their investment strategies to include SFR and BTR properties, Berkadia’s national footprint with unrivaled local expertise has never been more valuable, with a presence in more than 65 markets coast-to-coast.
