    Multifamily industry launches new 'Apartments. We Live Here.' campaign
    NMHC
    The National Multi Housing Council and the National Apartment Association unveiled a new integrated campaign titled "Apartments. We Live Here." The campaign tells the story about how in communities across the country, apartments work — helping people live in a home that's right for them. Whether it's young professionals starting out, empty nesters looking to downsize and simplify, workers wanting to live near their jobs, married couples without children or families building a better life, apartment homes provide a sensible choice to meet their specific housing needs.

    DePaul Study: Shortage of affordable rental housing hits Chicago area
    eNews Park Forest
    Demand for affordable rental housing for lower-income households in Cook County outpaces supply, according to a new report from DePaul University's Institute for Housing Studies. The findings show an affordability gap, between demand and supply of affordable housing in suburban Cook County, increased by 25 percent between 2007 and 2011. The city of Chicago experienced an 8 percent increase in the gap during the same time.

    US rental construction points to inferior housing recovery
    The Globe and Mail
    Many investors argue the recent surge in rental construction is the salvation of the U.S. housing market. Some basic economics, however, suggests otherwise. In the United States, history indicates a rental property is an "inferior good" — meaning the demand for rental property increases as income declines. This fact is easily seen by the 80 percent correlation between real income and the home ownership rate.

    Tight rental market pushes people out of the Twin Cities
    Minnesota Public Radio
    The Twin Cities metro area is experiencing the lowest rental housing vacancy rate in about a decade. The tight market and rising rents are making it difficult for people to find cheap apartments. New numbers show the average market rent in the Twin Cities for the first three months of this year was $966 a month. That's about $30 more than it was a year ago, according to Marquette Advisors, a real estate consulting firm.

    Buy-to-rent investors boosting remodelers, landscapers, property managers
    San Francisco Chronicle
    Remodelers, painters, landscapers and property managers are among the industries that should see strong growth this year thanks to the housing rebound, according to a new study from IBISWorld. These industries are getting an added push from investors buying single family homes to rent or flip. Investors generally buy distressed homes that need lots of work and spend money faster than traditional buyers because they are in a hurry to get the home on the rental or sale market.
