“The main reason for the increase in demand and rental prices lies in the falling affordability of purchasing home ownership in the primary and secondary real estate markets due to rising mortgage prices. People increasingly prefer to rent housing rather than buy their own, and are looking for more and more economical rental options,” explained the World of Apartments.
