Build-to-rent housing market explodes as investors rush in

The build-to-rent business is growing fast, with several companies, including big names, dipping into it. Toll Brothers recently announced a $60 million investment in a joint venture with BB Living, a build-to-rent company based in Phoenix.

“We’ve got clients, multiple, well over a couple billion dollars worth of capital looking to place in this space,” said Michael Finch, executive vice president at SVN/SFRhub Advisors, a new Phoenix-based commercial brokerage firm focused on single family rental and build-to-rent investment portfolios. “They are looking to acquire 5-6,000 homes in the next two years.”

Apartment rental demand soars as more millennials believe it’s cheaper than owning a home

“The metrics that we’ve seen this year have been off the charts,” said Toby Bozzuto, CEO of The Bozzuto Group, which currently has over a billion dollars worth of residential, Class A construction in the works across the North and Southeast. Bozzuto’s Chevy Chase development will offer 530 residential units comprised of 466 apartments, 64 condominiums and over 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurants. It is also connected to a metro rail line, which is exactly what today’s renters — both millennials and downsizing baby boomers—want.

Good Morning,

I'm new to the forum, I was wondering if someone might be able to answer this question for me.

Being an investor in Canada, would I be able to move to the united states, to continue my business there, considering that wholesaling across the united states is exponentially easier, with more tools available to find available properties.

If so, what steps would need to be taken, so that I could be able to relocate, and continue my business in the united states?
Are you looking for visa and immigration advice?

Or are you looking to do it as a Canadian living in Canada with occasional trips to & multi-week stays in the US?

The hottest housing market of 2019

Whether you’re looking to buy or rent, Phoenix has always been seen as one of the more desirable and affordable U.S. metro areas.
But this year home prices along with rents have surged in the Valley of the Sun at a rate that has outpaced the nation and other major markets. Phoenix’s strong job market, proximity to more expensive housing markets in California and dry, warm climate have made it the hottest housing market of 2019.

And it’s not just home prices. Rent has also been rising faster in the city than elsewhere in the U.S. Phoenix led the The CoreLogic Single-Family Rent Index, which looks at rent price change nationally and among 20 metro areas, for 11 straight months. In October, the city posted the highest year-over-year increase at 6.8% — far outpacing the national annual increase of 3.1%.

“Since we’ve been tracking migration in 2017, Phoenix has been among the top of the list,” said Daryl Fairweather, RedFin’s chief economist, adding that most people come from Los Angeles and other California cities, where housing is more expensive.
The nation’s fastest-growing U.S. county is also situated in Phoenix. For the third consecutive year, Maricopa County, Arizona’s most populated county, was the fastest-growing from July 2017 to July 2018, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released this year.

Phoenix was the most favored destination for potential homebuyers in the second quarter, during which time the net inflow of users to the city hit 9,428. The net inflow is how many more people are looking to move to the area than leave it.
