Home Rent Rates Jump 5 Percent, Real Property Management and RentRange Findings Reveal

Rental Market Leaders Team Up to Release Rental Housing Statistics on Rent, Vacancy and Saturation Rates

SALT LAKE CITY - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Real Property Management, the nation’s leading property management organization, and RentRange, the nation’s leading provider of Rental Market Intelligence™, together release rental statistics that show national rental home rates are rising.

Through the first quarter 2015, the companies reveal that the average monthly rent for single-family homes was $1,286, representing a 5.4 percent year-over-year increase. The rental market data was limited to three-bedroom single-family homes in the U.S.

Rental rates were up in all 10 regions analyzed. The Pacific and Northeast regions saw the largest upturns with 13 percent and 10.9 percent year-over-year increases, respectively. On the other end of the spectrum, the Mid-Atlantic and South-Atlantic regions had the lowest gains at 1.6 percent and 2.6 percent year-over-year increases, respectively.

Rental Rates and Year-over-Year Increases of 10 U.S. Regions through the First Quarter 2015

             
REGION     Median 3 BR rent ($)     Y-o-Y Change in 3BR rent
Pacific     1516     13.0%
Northeast     1693     10.9%
Southwest     966     8.8%
Southeast     957     8.3%
Texas     1244     6.9%
California     1907     6.4%
Mountain     1197     5.7%
Midwest     992     4.7%
South-Atlantic     1216     2.6%
Mid-Atlantic     1590     1.6%

“Rental rates are up throughout the country and we expect that trend to continue in the near future,” said Don Lawby, President of Property Management Business Solutions, the franchisor of Real Property Management. “There are a lot of economic indicators supporting that viewpoint, not the least of which is America’s continual shift toward renting.”

Vacancy rates through the end of the first quarter, the percentage of homes considered unoccupied, were also examined. The national rate rose slightly to 5.7 percent, up .09 percent year-over-year. The Midwest region had the highest vacancy rate at 7.2 percent whereas Texas had the lowest at 3.6 percent.

Lastly, the report analyzed the saturation rate across the country. This is the estimated percentage of rented single-family homes as a share of all single-family homes. Nationwide, 23.4 percent of single-family homes are rented, according to the data.

“Higher rents and the availability of detailed rental market data create unprecedented opportunities for investors to make good decisions,” said Wally Charnoff, CEO of RentRange. “Along with professional property management, such information reduces the risk of investing in a broader range of geographic areas.”
