How to Manage Rental Applications

As a landlord, one of your biggest fears is having a property that sits empty for weeks or even months. Every day that rolls by marks another dip in your bank account. That said, the last thing you want to do is rush in a new tenant only to discover they’re stuck in a financial quagmire or have a long history of trashing homes and failing to pay rent. Plus, losing a tenant (even if you’re ready for them to go) brings its own slew of budget-busting costs beyond lost rent, including marketing and administration fees, screening costs and potential maintenance or required upgrades.

Rent increases averaged 3 percent for full year 2018, a pick up from 2.7 percent in 2017.

New Single-Family Rental Index from CoreLogic Shows Slower Single-Family Rent Growth

Given the growing role that rental properties are playing in real estate, CoreLogic has developed a new Single-Family Rental Index (SFRI) to measure the changing rent dynamics of single-family rental properties. The index, which uses a methodology similar to our own CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI), as well as the CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index, measures changes in rents by comparing repeat leases on the same single-family properties. The index allows us to track the changes in rents while controlling for the mix and quality of single-family rental properties, which is a very important and unique feature of the index.

Using CoreLogic rental price data4 and Google Trends for the category “Apartment & Residential Rentals,” a new analysis from CoreLogic shows a strong correlation between Google search interest and real rental prices (dollar per square foot)5.
