Terner Center Releases New Brief on Single-Family Renters

The Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley has released a new brief, the Rise of Single-Family Homes after the Foreclosure Crisis: Understanding Tenant Perspectives, capturing the perspectives of tenants of single-family homes, the largest growing segment of the housing market today.

Based on a survey conducted among single-family renters across the United States, the brief provides insights into the market dynamics as well as personal circumstances that motivate the decision to rent a single-family home. Anticipating an enduring significance in the housing market, our report also provides policy recommendations to better serve this market segment.

A blog post summarizing these findings is now available on our website as well.
