What’s Next? Renter Needs and Industry Opportunities After the Pandemic
F1/F2, Booth 2255
Research

COVID-19 turned the world upside down in 2020, fundamentally changing what renters want and how the industry operates. The rise of social distancing, remote work and unemployment led many to re-evaluate where they live. Leasing, meanwhile, became a virtual business with new challenges. We break down the data on how renter behavior actually changed and evaluate what worked and what didn’t during the pivot. We also ask “what’s next?” and explore the permanence of these shifts, acknowledging which are temporary and which require adaptation for years to come.
