Rental occupancy according to Landlords using TenantCloud

July 21, 2017

Recently we launched The TenantCloud Quarterly to provide ongoing insight and analysis of real estate trends that hit the market in last years. Based on company data and user survey (based on 711 responses from Landlords), the latest shows U.S. rental occupancy rates are at the highest rate since 1993 and the country saw the largest percentage rent increase from January to March. This helps in explaining why so many people are jumping into the rental market as first-time landlords, two-thirds of TenantCloud landlords polled classify themselves as “part-time” landlords, and more than one-third have been a landlord for less than five years.

Below is the survey responses we received most recently:
