Love Funding, one of the nation’s leading providers of FHA multifamily, affordable and healthcare financing, said a report out today from Trulia.com shows that more support needs to be given to federal programs seeking to preserve affordable housing options.
Among other findings, the trend report from Trulia.com, “What Home Price Slowdown? Some Markets Buck the Trend,” revealed that rents rose 6.2% year-over-year across the U.S. in October, and by even higher rates in markets that were already the least affordable.
“Rental affordability is quickly emerging as the next housing crisis,” said Mark Dellonte, President and Chief Executive Officer of Washington, D.C.-based Love Funding. “We as a nation have to recommit ourselves to building and preserving affordable rental housing, and that starts by lending more support to federal programs designed to provide affordable multifamily housing.”
Growing demand for rental units, captured in multifamily vacancy rates below 5%, continues to push rents up. More than 7 million low-income households now spend more than half their income on rent, according to the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University.
