Dayton, OH Rental Market Overview
Is Dayton on the Verge of Turning an Economic Corner?
On paper Dayton appears to lag behind the rest of Ohio in the statewide economic recovery, but if positive growth continues, this could be an opportunity for small rental property investors seeking preemptive strategies for sidestepping competition from large institutional investors. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Dayton's unemployment rate was 7.5% in January 2014, higher than Ohio's state average of 6.9% and the national average of 6.6% for the same time period. 2012 data from the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey show that a little over 36% of Dayton households rent and almost 25% earn an annual income of $15,000 or less. As often associated with these statistics, Dayton's foreclosure inventory is higher than other Ohio cities with stronger economies, but this also creates some low-cost market entry points.
