NewStar: Opportunities Abound With Single Family Build-to-Rent

NewStar: Opportunities Abound With Single Family Build-to-Rent. Real estate, NewStar Exchange, build-to-rent, multifamily, millennials, white paper

A second whitepaper from NewStar Exchange explains how single-family build-to-rent continues to be a leading real estate investment option.

NewStar Exchange previously published a 2022 paper analyzing the factors contributing to the success of multifamily investments over the past decade and then extrapolated these insights to articulate its conviction going forward for single-family build-to-rent.

The NewStar team’s thesis was simple: With the growing housing shortage, millennials entering family-forming age, affordability issues in for-sale housing and institutional interest in single-family rentals, single-family build-to-rent is poised to be a leading real estate investment opportunity of the 2020s.

More than a year has passed since that initial publication. According to NewStar, all the key drivers remain intact, and its thesis is now bolstered further with data and analytics. With this second paper, the team aims to outline how recent performance data aligns with and reinforces the investment thesis.

“We see a once in a generation opportunity in single-family build-to-rent. Limited supply and accelerating demand are driving resident demand for homes and investor demand for these new communities, all at the same time,” said DuPree. “We saw this once before – in the 2010s, investing in multifamily assets – and it led to unprecedented rent and occupancy gains as well as price appreciation.”
