IMN SFR Industry Award Recipient

2023 Data Provider of the Year

In order to be the top research and consulting firm in the industry, we often need to figure out how to collect the data necessary for building indices and conducting thorough analysis. More than 10 years ago, when we entered the business, there was no comprehensive data on SFR/BTR. As a result, we had to collect the data ourselves to provide the analysis our clients expect from us. We continue to work alongside our clients and partners to further improve the data, enabling our clients to make even better decisions.

Featured Insights

Living in a build-to-rent (BTR) community usually costs more than renting a scattered single-family home (SFR) or garden-style apartment. But there’s no set premium to add when underwriting new BTR projects.

According to our recent BTR tenant survey, 63% of BTR tenants, including more than 70% of renters in single-family detached homes and 70% of young families, plan to purchase their next home.
