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.

first_imgThough Democrats flipped Republican-held seats in Colorado and Arizona, they lost one in Alabama and failed to capture seats in several other states in which they invested enormous sums of money.But a second Georgia runoff would extend their hopes through January, and focus the nation’s attention squarely on the Peach State. The Ossoff campaign said Thursday that the race was on track to require a runoff. “We are confident that Jon Ossoff’s historic performance in Georgia has forced Senator David Perdue to continue defending his indefensible record of unemployment, disease, and corruption,” Mr. Ossoff’s campaign manager, Ellen Foster, said in a statement.Mr. Perdue’s campaign manager, Ben Fry, said in a statement that if “overtime is required when all of the votes have been counted, we’re ready, and we will win.” Democrats’ sputtering hopes of reclaiming the Senate are on the edge of getting a boost, as Senator David Perdue, the Republican incumbent in Georgia, could be forced into a runoff with his Democratic challenger if his vote share remains below 50 percent once the state’s final votes are counted.As of Thursday afternoon, with 97 percent of the votes counted, Mr. Perdue had 49.9 percent of the vote against Jon Ossoff, who had 47.7 percent. Under Georgia law, if Mr. Perdue finishes below 50 percent, he’ll face Mr. Ossoff in a one-on-one vote in January.- Advertisement – On Wednesday, Mr. Warnock shared a pre-emptive video parodying the attacks he expects Ms. Loeffler to launch against him. The video claims Dr. Warnock hates puppies and eats pizza with a fork and knife. “Get ready Georgia, the negative ads are coming,” Mr. Warnock said. There will already be one runoff election in Georgia: Senator Kelly Loeffler, a Republican, will face the Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democrat.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement – If Democrats were able to win both seats, and if Joseph R. Biden Jr. wins the presidency, they would have the 50 senators needed to usher through judicial and cabinet appointments, and enact a Democratic agenda. If Republicans maintain control, they could exert their power to block the priorities of a Biden administration.If President Trump prevails, the Democrats would need to achieve the enormously difficult feat of winning both Georgia seats and the North Carolina seat held by Senator Thom Tillis, who is nearly two percentage points ahead of his Democratic challenger, Cal Cunningham, with 94 percent of the votes tallied. The extra seat would be required because the vice president casts the tie-breaking vote in the Senate. Mr. Tillis has already declared victory. – Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgBy Chris BevanBBC SportCHELSEA moved seven points clear at the top of the table by beating Bournemouth to set a club record of 12 straight Premier League wins.Cesc Fabregas set up Pedro to break the deadlock with a deflected shot that looped into the top corner.Eden Hazard capped an impressive display by making it 2-0 from the spot after he was brought down by Simon Francis.Chelsea added a third goal deep in injury time when Pedro’s shot hit Steve Cook and the ball spun over the line.Bournemouth’s best chance saw substitute Benik Afobe denied by Thibaut Courtois but the Cherries ended up well beaten.Liverpool can reduce Chelsea’s lead to six points if they beat Stoke yesterday.Chelsea were missing two key components of their recent run, with striker Diego Costa and midfielder N’Golo Kante both suspended, but it made little difference.Without Costa to lead the line, and the Blues £33M Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi again left on the bench, Antonio Conte went with a front three of Hazard, Willian and Pedro.It took time for them to hit their stride but the three players eventually proved an effective combination.They were happy to swap positions throughout the game but all three caused the Cherries problems when they ran at them, especially on the break.“This is the first time we played without a real forward,” Chelsea manager Conte explained.“We tried this in training and I think for us at the moment this situation is the best, but I don’t forget Michy because he is a young player with great talent. He is adapting to this league and its football. In the future, I trust in him.”Kante’s absence, meanwhile, saw Fabregas recalled to partner Nemanja Matic at the heart of Antonio Conte’s midfield.Again they took time to settle down, giving Jack Wilshere too much room on a couple of occasions before the break, but they were far more assured after halftime.Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe switched to a 3-4-3 formation to match Chelsea’s shape and, initially, it worked.Even when Pedro put the hosts ahead, the Cherries looked capable of causing problems for them and Wilshere got on the ball in some good positions, going close twice.It did not last, and Bournemouth were kept at arm’s length for much of the second half – enjoying more possession than Chelsea but unable to do much with the ball, and in constant danger from counter-attacks.“You can’t be too upbeat about getting beaten 3-0 but there were fine margins and many elements of our game-plan worked,” Howe said afterwards.“They scored their first goal out of the blue, without any real sustained period of pressure, and the second goal just after halftime was the decisive moment.”Howe’s side remain seven points above the relegation zone so have breathing space, but their away form is becoming a cause for concern.“Chelsea look so strong in every department, so confident in every department. The win was without two of their biggest hitters – N’Golo Kante and Diego Costa. Once they got that first goal it was just a matter of how many.“Their one-touch and two-touch play was just brilliant at times. Eden Hazard is in such incredible form and Willian had a fantastic game. Chelsea are red, red hot at the moment.”Eden Hazard’s best moment – a rabona shot from the edge of the area that was saved by Artur Boruc – would not actually have counted because the whistle had gone but there were plenty of other moments to savour. He ran at Bournemouth whenever he got the ball, and saw a lot of it – he made 87 touches, more than any other playerThe Cherries have won only one of their nine games on the road this season, but have a chance to put that right on New Year’s Eve when they travel to struggling Swansea.Chelsea host Stoke on the same day, looking to move closer to Arsenal’s record of 14 successive Premier League wins, set across the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons.“To win 12 games in a row is not easy in this league,” added Conte. “It’s a fantastic run but it’s important to continue that now.“In four days we have another tough game and we have to prepare very well. Because now every team wants to beat you.”last_img read more
