The U.S. multifamily market and demand for rental housing will remain solid and healthy between now and 2015, according to a study released by the U.S. mortgage giant Freddie Mac. Multifamily housing, the majority of which is used as rental apartments, currently accounts for 42 percent of the rental market, and others choose to rent single-family homes. In an optimistic economic recovery scenario, multifamily rental demand will be more muted because of competition from the owner market. The homeownership rate had declined from 68.2 percent in 2007 to 65.5 percent in the second quarter of 2012. In this process, the shift of households from homeowners to renters increased the demand for rental units, contributing to strong multifamily market fundamentals.
