As the COVID pandemic continues, so does the allure of single-family rentals.  New analysis from highlights the largest markets with the most available single-family home rentals.  Atlanta, Georgia currently leads the trend along with Texas cities Houston and Dallas.

“Single-family rentals account for approximately 1 out of 3 rentals in the U.S., but have rarely gotten the attention they deserve,” said Jonas Bordo, CEO & Co-Founder of Dwellsy.  “Dwellsy is the first and only rental housing marketplace to have a significant inventory of available single-family rentals, so we’re pleased to launch dedicated tracking of this unique market.”

In the past two years, single-family rentals have been by far the most in-demand type of rental housing, resulting in a staggering 35% increase in rent for these types of properties in the past year alone.
