There are many current trends that affect property management. Statistics show that rents increased 6.2%. This increase is fueled by an increase in demand from millennials who have gotten jobs and can now afford their own housing. Although their income is increasing, they are not yet able to make down payments on homes. This reality is driving demand in the rental market. Searches for rentals through mobile apps have increased dramatically, in part because millennials are heavy users of mobile devices. As a smaller number of people are moving, thus mobility rates are lower. However, these rates are higher among millennials.
