Why Is American Homes 4 Rent Building Whole Towns?

American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AHM) owns single-family homes, a relatively new niche in the real estate investment trust (REIT) sector. But there’s already a notable change taking shape in the way this landlord operates. If owning single-family rentals sounds good to you, take a moment to consider the history of American Homes 4 Rent and how its investment approach is changing.

Born from the bust

The 2007 to 2009 recession was led by the housing bust. Although a massive simplification, people were buying homes they couldn’t afford and those homes eventually wound up for sale when mortgages didn’t get paid. There were so many homes, helped along by banks with loose lending standards, that the housing market was swamped with supply. Home prices fell, often sharply.

The single-family rental market had historically been the purview of small investors because it was both a local business and one in which

In U.S. College Towns, Vacant Student Housing Poses New Opportunities for Buyers

The coronavirus pandemic disrupted back-to-school plans for millions of students this fall, including university students who normally pour into college towns in late August and generate major revenue for landlords who own off-campus housing.

With many colleges switching to remote coursework this semester—and perhaps more students than ever opting to take a gap year—much of the off-campus housing typically rented or purchased by students and their families is sitting empty. A survey of 1,050 full-time college students by the debt management company Student Loan Hero found that only half of students planned to return to campus this fall; of them, 34% said they would attend class in-person if given the option, while 16% said they would return to campus but take courses online. Roughly 29% of students plan to study online from home, according to the report, which was published in August.
