Home Rentals Good for Investors

Albuquerque Rental Market

Investors in the Rio Rancho and Albuquerque rental market enjoy excellent single family rental climate. ATTOM Data Solutions, Parent company to RealtyTrack and the largest data aggregator for the real estate community,produced its Q3 2016 Single Family Rental Market Report, and found despite declining rents in some markets, investors are still keen on buying investment properties. The gross rental yield in most west coastal cities is in the 3 percent range, in The Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area it is in the 8.5 percent range and the average rent for a three-bedroom home there is $1,352.

Metro investors like those numbers, and ATTOM estimates 5.6 percent of all home purchases in the Metro Area between January and July of this year were made by investors. Shockingly, that’s a 144 percent increase compared to the same time last year, the report read. Using rental data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and home price data, ATTOM found the returns investors can get in many markets are declining. (Returns is the monthly rent, annualized, divided by median home price.) Below is a recap for Bernalillo county. For an interactive map of other areas in the country go to http://www.attomdata.com/
