Here's the newest development in the story of the housing crisis. When the foreclosure wave first hit, the number of homes on the rental market went through the roof. People were trying to rent their homes rather than lose them, and the market was glutted with rental properties. From the article:
But in the past few months, as more of those former owners became renters, demand for those three- to four-bedroom rental homes climbed. And as lenders foreclose on more homes but are slow to resell them, the number of available houses has dropped. When houses do come on the rental market, rents are rising and landlords of family-size homes are receiving multiple offers and filling houses in days.
