KBRA Releases Single-Borrower SFR Performance Snapshot

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases a performance snapshot for the
KBRA-rated universe of outstanding single-borrower, single-family rental
(SFR) securitizations. The 25 securitizations covered in the report have
an outstanding principal balance of $14.9 billion, of which $14.1
billion is represented by 145 securities that have been rated by KBRA.
None of the securities issued in connection with these transactions have
experienced interest shortfalls or principal losses.

As of March 2018, five SFR operators own more than 180,000 homes, of
which 91,934 are included in the 25 securitizations covered in the
report. KBRA performed the monitoring utilizing information obtained
from the trustee and servicer for each deal to determine the performance
metrics of the underlying collateral. The process also leveraged
information from third-party sources including CoreLogic and RentRange.
The credit and portfolio metrics were compiled using various sources,
which included April 2018 remittance reports and detailed property-level
data files provided by the servicer.

The publication also provides key takeaways, including the following:

  • On average the transactions have experienced 21 months of seasoning,
    which ranged from one to 43 months.
  • Contractual rental rates (rent per property) have increased by 7.2%,
    on average, across all of the outstanding transactions since issuance.
  • The current vacancy rate across all portfolios range from 2.3% to
    7.2%, with an average of 4.4%.
  • Tenant retention rates have averaged 70.2% across all outstanding
    transactions.
  • Home price appreciation, as measured using zip code-level CoreLogic
    Home Price Index (HPI) data, have appreciated by 14.0%, on average,
    since the issuance of the respective deals.
  • Loan-to-value (LTV) ratios across all transactions have continued to
    decline since the issuance average of 73.7% to a current implied LTV
    of 64.7%.
