Putting Out The Welcome Mat For Renters

These days, home is increasingly where the rent check is. As many Americans continue to struggle with foreclosures, unemployment, and tightening budgets, home ownership is on the decline and rentals are up. As of June 2013, 65.1% of US households own their homes, down 3.0% over the previous five years.[1] Meanwhile, the rental vacancy rate has declined by 1.8% over that same period, showing an increase in the number of renters.[2] This motif includes REITs focused on developing, leasing, or operating rental properties.
