Choosing The Right Rental Property With National Apartment Association

More Americans are choosing to live in an apartment home, opting to lease their living space, taking advantage of the freedoms and mobility offered by the lifestyle. Doug Culkin, President and CEO of the National Apartment Association introduces us to the new world of apartment living. With young professionals, millennials, and down-sizers discovering that modern apartment living has much to offer, the demand for apartments is rising.

Often new apartment complexes are close to shopping areas, business districts, and rail or transportation systems. For working professionals, this will save on drive time, being close to work instead of commuting out to the suburbs.  A visit to Palmera Apartments in Mason, Ohio, reveals the modern approach to fulfilling the desires of today’s apartment residents.

Rental Community Fit

There are many options for those who desire the rental lifestyle

Is renting the new buying?

Did you know that one-third of Americans (35 million residents)rent their homes?

*Growing rental demographics include young professionals, married couples without children and empty-nesters.

*Renting provides freedom, flexibility and convenience.

*Rental demand is on the rise. According to “The State of the Nation’s Housing” report released in June by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, last year was driven by an increase of 1.1 million renter households, and marked the second consecutive year of double-digit percentage increases in multifamily construction.

*On the flip side, the national homeownership rate fell for the eighth straight year in 2012.

*According to “The Trillion Dollar Apartment Industry” report, there could be as many as 7 million new rental households by 2020.
