Single-family rents climbed steadily between 2010 and 2016, as measured by the CoreLogic Single-Family Rental Index (SFRI). However, the index shows year-over-year rent growth has decelerated slowly (Figure 1) since it peaked early last year. In August 2017, single-family rents increased 3 percent year over year, a 1.4 percentage point decline since the growth rate hit a high of 4.4 percent in February 2016. The index measures rent changes among single-family rental homes, including condominiums, using a repeat-rent analysis to measure the same rental properties over time.
