The report revealed a 3 percent year over year increase of single family rent prices in October 2018, compared to 2.7 percent around the same period last year. Low rental home inventory, relative to demand, has spurred the growth in single-family rent prices, the report indicated. The SFRI reflected an upward spike in rent prices between 2010 and 2018. However, the increase in year over year rent prices have slowed since they peaked at 4.2 percent in 2016, projecting stability over the past year at a monthly average of 2.9 percent. Low-end rentals saw a 3.9 percent year over year increase—a drop from 4.1 percent last year. High-end rentals, on the other hand, increased 2.6 percent in October 2018, up from 2 percent in October 2017. Las Vegas reflected the highest year-over-year increase in single-family rents in October 2018 at 6.6 percent, the report found. Phoenix followed closely at 6.4 percent. Orlando experienced the third highest year-over-year rent increase at 5.3 percent, down 0.6 percent from September 2018. According to the report, the growth in rent prices in both Orlando and Phoenix is driven by employment growth of 4.4 percent and 3.7 percent year over year, respectively. The lowest rent price increase was recorded at 0.3 percent in Seattle this month—also the lowest year-over-year rent growth for the metro since 2010.The report indicated that metros with limited new construction, low rental vacancies, and strong local economies are key drivers of stronger rent growth. Lowest employment growth was recorded in St. Louis at 2.5 percent. The report pointed out that disaster-affected areas such as Houston metro area experienced a growth of 2.4 percent year over year in October 2018. “While employment growth helps feed rent growth, this relationship doesn’t always hold up, especially for cities with very high rents,” said Molly Boesel, Principal Economist at CoreLogic. Though the overall outlook for the single-family rental sector remains positive, it can be hard to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of the SFR market. Focusing on how to build, manage and grow investment opportunities, 2019 will see an array of housing and mortgage professionals come together at The Guest House of Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee between March 11-13 for the Single Family Rental Summit. The Summit will feature subject-matter experts who will answer questions and offer viable solutions related to property management, acquisition, disposition, and financing.

In November, city officials caused an uproar when they declined to allow advertising for the film “The Nativity Story” to be shown during the annual German Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza. Officials initially said they didn’t want to appear to endorse one religion over another and potentially offend non-Christians. Then they explained that the film display would be too commercial for the market because the movie studio sponsored it. The studio’s sponsorship deal was later dropped, and the film’s trailer was shown with city approval. CHICAGO – A 19-foot cedar cross commemorating the Crucifixion was set up in the city’s downtown for Easter, just months after city officials said they didn’t want to offend non-Christians at a holiday fair held in the same location. City officials approved a permit for the cross, which was erected in Daley Plaza on Good Friday and left in place for a sunrise prayer service on Easter Sunday. Attorney Thomas Brejcha, one of the planners of the cross display, said there is legal precedent for allowing religious expression in the plaza. “The idea we want to get across is that Daley Plaza is a public forum where people can express ideas, and if they can do that for political ideas, they should be able to do it for religion, too,” Brejcha said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A stunning red squirrel in the woods in Muff this morning. Pic by Bren Whelan.Environmentalists are outraged after walkers left piles of litter in a wood in Inishowen which has coming a habitat for the endangered red squirrel.Bren Whelan submitted a series of pictures to Donegal Daily which he took today at stunning Lis Na Gra Woods in Muff.The images show the litter as well as signs saying the area is protected for the red squirrel.A signing warning about dumping in the woods.Bren said “During a walk this morning I took all of the images contained within this email, the contrast between how nature is at work within the woodlands is clearly highlight, whilst the irresponsible behaviour of others is sadly also shown too. “There is an ongoing issue at this woodland site, which is a sensitive natural home of the red squirrel.“It would be great if you could highlight the issue through an educational approach which might encourage woodland users to take a responsible approach to how they interact with Donegal and Ireland’s sensitive natural environment,” he said.A recent squirrel survey showed that the red squirrel is now considered extinct in counties Meath and West Meath and particularly rare in Kilkenny, Carlow and Louth.In light of this regrettable news, the result from Inishowen is even more valuable. Inishowen is now one of the few places on the island where there was a positive expansion of territory. It is believed that Inishowen’s red squirrels have expanded from neighbouring Co. Derry and the earliest records from Lis na gra wood near muff would seem to support this.’Clearly, as the survey shows, these woodlands are providing a safe haven for the Reds, and the type of impacts which are occurring in this area only serve to erode the regeneration of these red squirrels.LITTER LOUTS THREATEN HABITAT OF DONEGAL’S RED SQUIRRELS was last modified: September 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegallitter loutRed Squirrels
