In the October 2022 REIT Outlook titled, “Residential REITs: The Property Type You Can Actually Afford,” we highlight why we believe that residential REITs, both multifamily and single family rentals, are in a favorable position. Specifically, housing affordability is at its worst levels since 1989, the Federal Reserve is showing no signs of slowing down its historically fast pace of spiking interest rates to combat the rampant inflation, and a subdued new supply of single family homes all contribute to the favorable supply and demand dynamics seen throughout the sector.
