In the 10 years since the Great Recession, the process of value-add multifamily investing — buying a property, renovating it, raising rents, then selling for a profit — has completely changed. Markets with strong population growth and healthy job markets have become the epicenter for the new value-add. Putting The Value Back In Value-Add In the…


Do you look good in orange? How about an orange, one-piece jumpsuit? I recently watched the entire first series of “Orange is the New Black” on Netflix, and although it was an entertaining look at life inside prison, it also made me realize how much I really don’t want to end up there. Frankly, I…


As Airbnb continues to jump over regulatory hurdles, the home-sharing giant is working to expand its long-term rental business — which is fraught with hurdles of its own. The major landlords that could really bring credibility to its long-term rentals are the same landlords that, so far, have been the most resistant, Yardi Matrix director of business intelligence Doug Ressler said.

With home prices and interest rates rising, many renters feel the American Dream is more out of reach than ever. But that isn’t preventing them from moving to the ’burbs. A new analysis from RentCafé found that the number of suburban renters increased faster over urban renters in 19 out of 20 major U.S. metro…

But as rents have climbed — studios in the neighborhood now average $2,405 a…

Low rates also have investors looking for higher yield, and single-family rental homes are an attractive option. Not only do they offer a steady, monthly stream of income, but…


Across all demographics, American home ownership is at 63 percent — the lowest rate in more than five decades.

Naturally, a lull in the economy forces business creation or…
