Study Purpose. This study is separate and independent from GoSection8. It is a partnership between Teachers College, Columbia University, GoSection8, and Great Schools. With funding from the Arnold Foundation, researchers from Teachers College, Columbia University are studying whether offering school information alongside rental housing listings on GoSection8.com causes families to move to neighborhoods with higher-performing public schools. Results will be used to provide GoSection8, Public Housing Authorities, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development information about how and whether to offer school information alongside rental housing listings.
"We've got clients, multiple, well over a couple billion dollars worth of capital looking to place in this space," said Michael Finch, executive vice president at SVN/SFRhub Advisors, a new Phoenix-based commercial brokerage firm focused on single family rental and build-to-rent investment portfolios. "They are looking to acquire 5-6,000 homes in the next two years."
In 2017, 37,000 homes were built as rentals, according to the National Association of Home Builders. That grew to 43,000 last year, or just under 5% of total single-family housing starts. But that is just homes built and held by builders for rent and doesn't include those sold directly to investors, so the numbers are likely larger and growing more quickly.
