HomeUnion Names the Highest-Yielding Single-Family Rental Markets

Cleveland offers real estate investors the highest yields, while Orange County has the lowest yields

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 10, 2017 – HomeUnion, an online real estate investment management firm, has released a list of the single-family rental (SFR) rental markets that offer investors the highest yields. Cleveland leads the nation, with first-year yields of 10.9 percent for investment housing, while Orange County offers the lowest yields on average to SFR investors – 3 percent.

“Strictly based on yields, and not accounting for employment growth and future rental demand, Cleveland, Columbia, S.C., and Memphis top our list of SFR markets for returns,” says Steve Hovland, director of research for HomeUnion. “In these metros, investors stand to gain big with a small initial investment over a shorter-term horizon. On the other hand, Orange County, San Jose and San Francisco will provide SFR buyers with the lowest yields on their investments. At this stage in the real estate cycle, investing in these West Coast markets doesn’t pencil out for most buyers, unless they seek a long-term appreciation play or desire the cache associated with purchasing California properties located in highly ranked school districts.”

Below is a list of the highest-yielding SFR markets:

Metro Area 2017 Yields
Cleveland 10.9%
Columbia 9.3%
Memphis 8.5%
Philadelphia 7.9%
Atlanta 7.6%
Chicago 7.5%
Jacksonville 7.4%
Tampa 7.1%
Charlotte 7.1%
Detroit 6.9%

Below is a list of the lowest-yielding SFR markets:

Metro Area 2017 Yields
Orange County 3.0%
San Jose 3.1%
San Francisco 3.2%
Los Angeles 3.5%
San Diego 3.5%
Seattle 3.6%
Oakland 3.9%
Denver 4.2%
Portland 4.3%
Riverside 4.5%
