What is Causing the Rental Property Shortage?

Reprint from Elk River Star News & Anoka County Shopper, "Real Estate News by Stephanie Danielson" - 5/28/16 issue.

You don't have to be a recent college graduate to know that it is getting more and more difficult to locate a nice, affordable rental property.  Despite the rebounding housing market, the national rate of homeownership continues to decline to just 63.5%, which is very near a 48 year low.  This drop in homeownership rates means an exceptionally strong demand for rental housing!

This trend is projected to continue for quite some time due to factors such as; rising home prices, student loan debt, delays in marriage and childbearing and uncertainty about buying a home as an investment.

While this scenario makes it tough to be a tenant - this is a GREAT time to be a landlord!   Acuity Group’s Property Management Department has a waiting list of qualified renters.

When offering a new property for rent, we are securing a qualified tenant within 5 business days or less!
