Demand For Rentals Is Being Fueled By An Historic Housing Market.

Since May of 2020, the housing market has been incredibly active with record sales happening practically on a daily basis. The initial frenzy of buyer demand was focused primarily on the single-family home market. As competition in that sector grew, weary buyers turned their sights to condos. However, the ease of getting a contract on a condo quickly ended and some buyers had no choice but to turn to rentals.

The extensive inventory declines in the single-family home and condo markets have now spread to the rental market in Miami-Dade County. As seen in the chart below, the number of rentals on the market in Miami-Dade County is at an all-time low. In the period from January 1 to September 20, 2021 versus the same period in 2020, rental inventory has dropped by 74.8%. As a result of this steep decline in rental inventory, the median asking price has risen by 34.7% from $2,300 in 2020 to $3,100 in 2021.
