High Earners Are Moving Toward Renting

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 31, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAThe fastest growing group of renters may surprise you.

So you think you have the average American renter all figured out—that they're a group of young, unsettled, commitment-phobic folks, just starting out and scraping by? Well, you might want to widen out that picture a bit. The reality: The fastest-growing group of new renters includes those aged 50 or older, or younger folks raking in six-figure salaries, according to a new report.

This is a tale of the haves—who could afford to buy a home, but choose not to—and the have-nots, who don't make enough money to become homeowners. And although overall rental prices are starting to level off, and in some cases even dip a little, there still aren't nearly enough affordable rentals to meet the overwhelming demand from lower-income renters.

The new renter: Older and wealthier than you'd expect

Overall, renters had a median age of 40 in 2016—up from 38 in 2016. (In comparison, homeowners are a median 56.) That's because more baby boomers, whose kids have flown the coop, are downsizing out of their large, suburban homes and opting for maintenance-free rentals instead. No more mowing the lawn and shoveling snow for them! That's pushing up the median age of all renters.

More folks earning some serious dough are also choosing to rent rather than buy. About 13.3% of renter households made more than $100,000 in 2016. That's up from 9% in 2006.

That's partly because some high earners are saddled with high student debt loads, making it difficult to cobble together a down payment. In addition, more-walkable cities, many of which have undergone attractive revitalizations, have also become desirable places to live. So those with means are willing to lease a unit in a newly constructed community with luxe amenities.

Apartment Decorating Tips

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 24, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAAre you looking to reinvigorate your apartment in Fredericksburg, VA for the sunnier and warmer weather? Or maybe you just want to change it up a bit. Below are a few ideas, and you don't even have to overspend.

Repaint old furniture: Instead of throwing away old wood furniture, paint it. Even different but stylish dining chairs look great when you paint them the same color.

Add plants: Indoor plants require care to stay beautiful but they make great décor on a budget. If you don’t have a green thumb, there are plants that don’t take too much effort. Talk to the sales person about the plants before you buy them.

Use photos for art: If you have an eye for photography, or just some great photos, print and frame some yourself. Hang them a few inches apart to create the illusion of large, expensive artwork.

Use a mirror: An oversized mirror reflects light into the room, which makes it look larger. Or use several smaller mirrors together.

Change your curtains: This is a great way to dress up a space.

Add lighting: Add soft lighting with table and standing lamps.

Throw in some pillows: Liven up your furniture with a few throw pillows. Pillows are easy to rotate for all seasons.

You don’t need a lot of money in order to give your apartment a seasonal, a personalized look. Be creative.

Finding Pet-Friendly Apartments in Fredericksburg, VA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 18, 2018

Abberly at Southpoint, Fredericksburg, VAIf you have a four-legged friend, you may be looking for a pet-friendly apartment in Fredericksburg, VA. Sometimes when you have a pet, it makes the apartment search a bit tougher than normal.

Here are some tips on how you can find the perfect home to rent for both you and your pet.

Look specifically for pet-friendly communities

It seems obvious, but apartment hunters would save themselves from a lot of heartache if they concentrated on finding pet-friendly apartments from the outset. What you don’t want is to find an apartment you love, only to be crushed when you discover you can’t bring your pet along.

Always start a conversation

You can talk to the property manager or landlord. The number one factor that leads landlords to ban pets is fear of damage to the unit. A little assurance goes a long way.

Create a pet résumé

It may seem silly, but a ‘pet résumé’ is a great tool to show landlords that you take their concerns seriously and also answers any questions they have about your pet. Include a photo of your pet, along with its name, weight and any medical information - for example, is it spayed or neutered? Is your cat declawed? In addition to being a convenient page for property managers to reference, it also reassures the landlord you are taking this seriously.

Follow the rules

Whatever you do, don’t even think of sneaking your pet into a building where pets are forbidden. You will be breaking a contract. A lease is a legal document and not following it could lead to being fined or losing your security deposit — or even being evicted.
