Sizes of Rental Units in the US

I previously talked about ownership of rental properties.    A lot of the single family home rentals are owned by individuals and most large complexes are owned by some sort of business entity.   

I decided to look at how the rental housing in the US is made up as far as the size of the rental units.  Do most people live in large complexes, single homes or duplexes or a mixture?

I got the data from 2015 Rental Housing Finance Survey

Here's the graphic :



And the figures in a table :

 Number of Units on Property1 47,543
   1 unit 19,283
   2 to 4 units 6,523
   5 to 24 units 4,938
   25 to 49 units 4,081
   50 to 99 units 3,249
   100 to 149 units 1,908
   150 units or more 7,561


A large % of rentals at 40% are single family homes.      The majority of rental units, 54%, are in 1-4 unit buildings.    20% of rental units are in large buildings and complexes of 100 units or more.

$350 Bonus For Opening Chase Checking and Savings accounts


Chase bank is currently offering a $200 bonus and a $150 bonus for opening Checking and Savings accounts respectively.     For the checking you have to set up direct deposit from your job or government benefits and with the savings it requires a $10,000 balance.

Read all the details at the Chase site.


Here's the key fine print for reference:

 To receive the $200 checking bonus: 1) Open a new Chase Total Checking account, which is subject to approval; 2) Deposit $25 or more at account opening; AND 3) Have your direct deposit made to this account within 60 days of account opening. Your direct deposit needs to be an electronic deposit of your paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) from your employer or the government. After you have completed all the above checking requirements, we'll deposit the bonus in your new account within 10 business days. To receive the $150 savings bonus: 1) Open a new Chase SavingsSM account, which is subject to approval; 2) Deposit a total of $10,000 or more in new money into the new savings account within 10 business days of account opening; AND 3) Maintain at least a $10,000 balance for 90 days from the date of deposit. The new money cannot be funds held by Chase or its affiliates. After you have completed all the above savings requirements, we'll deposit the bonus in your new account within 10 business days. The Annual Percentage Yield (APY), for Chase SavingsSM effective as of 3/16/2018, is 0.01% for all balances in all states. Interest rates are variable and subject to change. Additionally, fees may reduce earnings on the account. You can receive only one new checking and one new savings account opening related bonus each calendar year and only one bonus per account. Bonuses are considered interest and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT (or Form 1042-S, if applicable).

Does This Mean Chase is Rejecting Me (again)?

I just applied for a Chase Ink Business Cash Card since it currently has a $500 cash back promo after spending $3000.     Credit to Slickdeals for reporting the deal.

I got this reply :


I suspect I might be getting a rejection letter in the mail in a few days.    We'll see.

I signed up using my rentals as a business and I think thats legit.   But it might not pass their muster if I filled it out wrong.    I suspect that I might fail the chase 5/24 rule which rejects applicants who've signed up for 5 cards in the past 24 months.   I'm not sure as I've lost track of the cards I've applied for.
