With housing affordability declining and renting becoming a more common option, this webinar explores the question: Will single-family built-for-rent be the future of rental housing as people look to live in less population-dense areas?

Thursday, October 29, 2020
2-3 p.m. ET


Single-family built-for-rent (SFBFR) housing, offers renters the benefits of single-family living without the maintenance and costs of traditional home ownership. With housing affordability declining, renting becoming a more common option and COVID-19 changing how and where we live, will SFBFR be the future of rental housing? In this webinar, Dr. Robert Dietz, NAHB’s Chief Economist, will outline the data and trends driving the increase in SFBFR construction, declining affordability and renters’ desire to live in less dense areas. Scott Adams, Senior Principal at Bassenian Lagoni, will then offer key insights for designing in this specific niche. Lastly, Rich Eneim, Jr., Vice President and Principal of Keystone Homes, will cover best practices regarding SFBFR development.


Participants in this webinar will:


  • -Understand the trends and construction rate of SFBFR housing relative to traditional single-family and multifamily development.
  • -Identify key design differences between SFBFR housing and traditional single-family housing.
  • -Learn development tips and best practices from a SFBFR development.


Speaker: Dr. Robert Dietz, Chief Economist, NAHB; Scott Adams, Senior Principal, Bassenian Lagoni; & Rich Eneim, Jr. Vice President and Principal, Keystone Homes
