Two relatively small housing submarkets are starting to show signs of strengthening. One of those markets: renters looking for more space, both inside and out. The other: people looking to get away from it all, if only for a few weeks.
Renters should soon see more opportunities to lease brand-new houses specifically built as rentals, while buyers of vacation homes are already flexing their purchasing-power muscles.
The built-to-rent market is, indeed, small. Currently, only about 6 percent of all single-family houses are purposefully built as rentals, working out to about 70,000 houses a year. But that's not enough to keep up with demand, according to RCLCO, a Maryland-based advisory firm that said built-to-rent housing represents a big opportunity for its clients.
Other consulting firms have been saying the same. One, Meyers Research, has suggested that big master-planned communities should contain entire neighborhoods of rental houses. And the National Rental Home Council expects demand to surge.
A truly unique alternative to the typical rental experience, Avilla Homes neighborhoods feature single level, detached homes for lease in a gated enclave. The one, two and three-bedroom floor plans feature private entrances, outdoor patios and backyards, along with high-end finishes such as 10' ceilings, granite/quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and more. The pet friendly communities offer the perks of neighborhood living with optional garages, resort-style pool, beautifully landscaped recreation areas, and even an electric car charging station - all maintained by a professional management company, without mortgage payments or HOA fees.
