14 | TH E M R EP O RT With the homeownership rate in the U.S. currently near a 50-year low, there are now approximately 14 million single-family rental homes in the country. In order to tap into this multi-trillion dollar asset class, investors and professionals in the single-family rental space gathered at the Second Annual Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit (SFRS) held in Frisco, Texas, on November 1-3. At the event, attendees enjoyed panels from industry experts, TED Talks, and networking opportunities. Industry leaders discussed acquisition and disposition strategies; fund- ing, maximizing efficiency and profits when managing and rehabilitating single-family rental properties, the value of technology, and more. While the single-family rental market continues to redefine its borders, navigating this complex and dynamic terrain takes careful planning and strategic partnerships. The Single-Family Rental Summit provided an important conduit for SFR leaders to have conversations that will continue to push the industry forward for years to come.
