A recent essay in Forbes by Roofstock CEO & Co-Founder, Gary Beasley, outlines what he sees as the five trends real estate investors should be watching.

“…The increased interest I’ve observed in the single-family rental sector can be attributed in part to the recent volatility in the equity markets and the growing uncertainty around when the economic expansion will finally lose steam.”

The five real estate industry trends that Beasley says savvy investors should be watching are:

  1. Build-To-Rent Properties In Secondary And Tertiary Markets
  2. Large Capital Partners Entering Joint Ventures
  3. Retail Investor Interest In Single-Family Rental Homes
  4. Renting As A Lifestyle Choice
  5. Getting Creative To Satisfy Demand
