COVID-19: Impact on Single-Family Rentals
Economic uncertainty combined with a public health crisis raises challenges for the single-family rental market. More renters will want to stay put, but delinquencies are likely to increase as the economy freezes up. What is the short- and long-term impact for property owners and managers?
Join RealPage VP/Deputy Chief Economist Jay Parsons and Propertyware VP Inaas Arabi for the live webcast, COVID-19: Impact on Single-Family Rentals. They’ll discuss these and other questions:
- What should owners and managers expect for single-family rental demand and retention, given the likely slowdown in home sales, limitations on evictions, and anticipated loss of jobs across the country?
- What can single-family rental operators do to maintain strong tenant services while limiting physical contact?
- How should property managers think about marketing and leasing in a period when demand is likely to be more limited and where prospective renters may be more nervous about in-person visits?
- What impact should you expect from eviction moratoriums already established in many cities, and how can property managers and owners best protect themselves?
No one has all the answers in these unprecedented circumstances, but in this engaging webcast, we will do our best to address your questions.
