South Florida tenants will have to settle for slower rent growth

Beleaguered South Florida tenants still will be paying more in the coming year, but a new forecast shows rent growth is likely to slow.

Rents in the tricounty region are projected to increase 3.2 percent through next August — down from 4.2 percent over the past year, real estate website Zillow said. The national average for the year ahead is 1.7 percent, same as it was this year.

That’s up from 19.5 percent in 2014, and it’s the highest percentage since 2005, the first year the figures were calculated annually, Zillow said.

Traditionally, renters have been young, single professionals living in apartments, but more families are turning to single-family rentals because they’ve postponed homeownership or they can’t afford to buy, housing analysts and counselors say.

Renters who invest are better off than buyers, study finds

Average consumers in South Florida would be slightly better off renting a home than buying one — assuming they invest the money they would have spent on a down payment and other cost savings, a new study shows.
