After approximately one decade of consistent growth of the institutional single-family rental (SFR) market, investor interest in the sector seems have increased since the onset of the pandemic. Rising rental rates and high occupancy rates resulted in strong performance for SFR over the last two years. Institutional investors have reacted by allocating significant equity dollars to the SFR sector. MetLife Investment Management (MIM) has identified over $30B1 in announced institutional equity capital commitments to SFR over the last 18 months. Total equity invested including unannounced commitments is likely much higher.
