Single-Family Rentals Over the Past Decade

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Home / Daily Dose / Single-Family Rentals Over the Past Decade Sign up for DS News Daily Single-Family Rentals Over the Past Decade After the financial crisis hobbled the housing industry back in 2008, the number of rented abodes skyrocketed. Today, that number continues to climb, as more people opt—for one reason or another—to live the leasing lifestyle, according to the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at the University of California, Berkeley, which conducted a national survey of single-family renters to better weigh their experiences and motivations.Between 2006 and 2016, more than 3.8 million additional households became single-family renters, the center notes. By the time 2015 rolled around, nearly one in five single-family homes was occupied by a renter, and today, single-family rentals make up the fastest-growing portion of the housing market, the Terner Center says.To tease out the qualitative factors behind their choice to rent a home, the Terner Center analyzed why a growing number of renters are choosing to reside in single-family rental properties. What researchers found is this: the reason households often opt to rent is completely unrelated to the housing stock itself.Nearly two-thirds of respondents were already renters before relocating into their current digs—35.8 percent rented single-family homes while 30 percent had been living in multifamily units. Some 42.9 percent said they were renting because it was more affordable and convenient, offered more flexibility, and/or provided them access to a nicer neighborhood. Almost one in five survey takers said they had no desire to own a home in the future.Another data point: People rent single-family homes for their size and amenities (“private laundry,” no shared walls with neighbors, space for pets, etc.) and because of the benefits inherent to single-family neighborhoods. Only one out of 190 said they’d prefer to reside in a multifamily dwelling instead. Popularity notwithstanding, the American homeownership dream is still alive and well: 80 percent of single-family renters said they desire to purchase a place of their own within the next five years, the study says. Among those, almost one-third said their decision stems from a desire to shield themselves from rent increases and/or evictions. “The study illuminates that many of these renters are interested in homeownership, but the tightened credit box in the wake of the financial crisis has made it more difficult for renters—even among those with higher incomes—to qualify for a mortgage,” the study reports. “While there are numerous factors that have contributed to this tightening of lending standards, it is critical that policymakers working to revamp the housing finance system consider questions of access.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: Affordability Home Rental Market Homebuyers Rental Renters Single Family Rental Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Affordability Home Rental Market Homebuyers Rental Renters Single Family Rental 2018-04-20 Alison Rich Alison Rich has a long-time tenure in the writing and editing realm, touting an impressive body of work that has been featured in local and national consumer and trade publications spanning industries and audiences.

H2 Gambling Capital predicts 11% drop in gambling revenues

first_img StumbleUpon Share EGBA calls for enhanced collaboration on consumer rights August 11, 2020 COVID-19 has continued to have widespread impacts on both the sporting and betting industries, with H2 Gambling Capital data revealing that the pandemic has led to a 11% drop in forecasted global gambling revenues in 2020.According to the gambling data specialist’s new weekly COVID Impact Tracker, 2020 global gambling gross win forecasts have been downgraded from $473bn to $421bn.But despite the dismal retail forecasts, it has predicted that there could be an increase in online gambling activity, suggesting that the online sector could move from 13.2% to a 15.7% share of global gambling revenue.According to the European Gaming and Betting Association, EGBA members generated €2.36bn in online sports betting revenue in 2018, which accounted for 44% of their total online gambling revenues.“It’s sad that so many iconic sporting events are being cancelled or suspended and it will obviously have a negative impact on our sector. But the safety and health of the public is obviously more important and we fully support the sporting authorities and others in the difficult decisions they face right now,” said Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of the EGBA.Currently major sports events suspended or canceled due to the virus include English football’s top division the English Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga and the European Champions League, as well as The Masters golf major, and the UK Grand National horserace – all major events for European bookmakers.

The Tiger watch is on for final major of the year

first_imgWILL HE PLAY?–Golf fan Nevin Baker carries his daughter, Sophia, 4, on his shoulders as they walk past a photo of Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship golf tournament at Valhalla Golf Club Monday, Aug. 4, 2014, in Louisville, Ky. The tournament is set to begin on Thursday. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson)LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Joe LaCava walked nearly every blade of grass on the 18th green at Valhalla Golf Club, jotting notes in his yardage book after stepping off the distances from every edge of the green to every possible pin position. It was just like any other Monday at a major.The caddie just didn’t know whether any of this information would be useful in the PGA Championship. LaCava was awaiting word on whether his boss — Tiger Woods — would be healthy enough to play the final major of the year.“I’m optimistic,” LaCava said after he finished charting the entire golf course. “I’m hoping he plays. So I’m just doing whatever work I would normally do.”The caddie was at Valhalla. So was his car, a silver SUV parked in the spot assigned to the four-time PGA champion.As for Woods?Stay tuned. His agent, Mark Steinberg at Excel Sports Management, said in an email that Monday would be too early for doctors to decide whether Woods could or even should try to play this week after another back injury.The PGA of America said that Woods would not have his previously scheduled news conference Tuesday morning. It did not provide additional details.Woods took another turn toward an uncertain future when he withdrew after eight holes and one final shot Sunday at the Bridgestone Invitational. Before leaving Firestone, he said he jarred his back when he hopped into a deep bunker after playing a shot on the par-5 second hole from an awkward lie off the slope above the sand.“It’s just the whole lower back,” Woods said. “I don’t know what happened.”Making the picture look even bleaker was the timing. Woods had back surgery March 31 to alleviate the pain from a pinched nerve. The Bridgestone Invitational was only his third tournament since returning from a three-month absence. And there he went again, riding off the golf course in a cart, struggling to even remove his shoes before LaCava drove him to the airport for a flight back to Florida for evaluation.“Obviously, I feel bad for him,” Rory McIlroy told the BBC on Monday. “The game of golf really needs Tiger. He’s had a few withdrawals the past couple of years. I think the first thing is just to get fit and 100 percent healthy, even if that means taking the year off and coming back next year ready to play golf.”If he doesn’t play the PGA Championship, his season indeed would be over.Woods has to win the final major of the year to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs. He would have to win to clinch a spot on the Ryder Cup team. And by the sound of U.S. captain Tom Watson, he would have to play at Valhalla to even merit consideration as a wild-card selection.“Tiger would be a great addition to our team,” Watson told SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio on Monday. “I’ve said all along, I would pick Tiger Woods if he’s healthy and playing well. This doesn’t bode well right now. I just hope that maybe it’s just an isolated problem that he can turn around and possibly play this week at the PGA.”Watson said he watched the entire front nine and knew something was wrong with Woods after his tee shot on the par-3 fifth hole came up 65 yards short.“You don’t hit that terrible a shot ever — ever,” Watson said. “And I said, ‘Something is wrong.’”LaCava noticed it much earlier, when Woods hit a shot so heavy that it came up 30 yards short of the flag and into the water on the third hole.“I knew he was hurting when he fatted the one on 3, which he never does,” LaCava said. “He never fats them like that.”Woods kept playing, though, until grimacing on a tee shot at the ninth, slowly bending to remove his tee and calling for a cart to take him in. Why not stop sooner?“He’s tough,” LaCava said. “Tough and stubborn would be two good words.”Woods has not been back to Valhalla in 14 years, not since that high-charged playoff victory over Bob May that gave Woods his third straight major on his way to an unprecedented sweep of the majors at the height of his game. Woods was recovering from season-ending knee surgery in 2008 and did not play in the Ryder Cup.The course has changed since, with Jack Nicklaus making various tweaks, especially around the green. The par is now 71 with the second hole changed to a par 4. Otherwise, it looked to be in immaculate conditions on the first day of practice.Phil Mickelson, coming off a 62 in the final round at Firestone, played nine holes. The practice range and chipping area were crowded with players. McIlroy already was back at work, having established himself as the overwhelming favorite coming off his wire-to-wire win at the British Open and rallying from three shots behind to win at Firestone.Still to be determined is whether Woods would be able to join them.last_img read more
