UC Merced Students Impact Rental Market

May 5, 2011

According to the University of California, Merced, the student population is continuing to rise! UC Merced expects 5100 students this year.  This is an increase of approximately 700 students over last year’s census.

This large influx of students is having dramatic effects on the residential rental market. According to Gonella Property Management, there may be a severe shortage of large single family residences in North Merced beginning this summer.

If you have been thinking about purchasing a single family rental NOW is the time!  Prices are still very low and according to Gonella Property Management rents are increasing!

Rental Property Inventory Update

July 23, 2010

For several months now, the Central Valley has had very small number of properties for sale. Now, it appears that this trend is also beginning to affect rental properties.

According to our Property Management Department, Gonella Realty Property Management – out of 30 single family residences available for rent, there has been an application for, or a holding deposit on all but 3 properties. This indicates a tremendous surge in demand for rentals and we believe that rental prices, which have been steadily rising, will continue to increase.

So, if you’ve been thinking about buying a rental property, but are wondering if you will be able to find a tenant, the answer is more than likely to be ABSOLUTELY!
