Single Women, the Rise of the Rental Market, and the Death of Our Civilization

Some good news for the rental market — and extremely bad news for Western Civilization:

[A] shift in demographic trends will likely favor the rental apartment market for the foreseeable future. It is all about women. …

“What drives demand for single family homes is, ‘Oh honey, I’m pregnant,'” says Buck Horne, a housing analyst at Raymond James.

But those words are being uttered less and less. …

[T]he millennial generation is delaying marriage and motherhood, and birth and fertility rates are dropping. The female fertility rate is at its lowest level in recorded U.S. history, according to the Centers for Disease Control/Raymond James research. 41 percent of children are born out of wedlock. Horne’s research finds single mothers prefer living closer in to cities and staying in full amenity apartment rentals. This all points to more structural, long-term demand for rental housing.

It also points to a long-term demand for full amenity government to take the place of fathers for what few children are born.

So that we don’t run out of taxpayers to keep the Social Security Ponzi scheme afloat for another generation, we will have to import ever more Third Worlders not known for the American values of industriousness and independence.

The social malformations caused by moonbattery are shrinking and transforming the population into a race of government dependents fit to be ruled by collectivist tyrants. But even as America dies by its own hand, at least landlords may benefit in the short term.

    I wouldnt be suprised that one day the Moonbat Elites will use eminent domain to turn all private homes into government owned public housing. Single and living in a house with extra rooms? Well get ready for people bearing government subsidized housing vouchers to demand to live in your unoccupied rooms. Should you choose not to accept the meager vouchers and allow your new roommates to raid your pantry and fridge you will be taken to a re-educaiton camp to either become right thinking collectivists or you have a date with a Che wannabe.

    Within 100 years we will have (un)bred ourselves out of existence. Thanks, moonbats.

    Certain women have been working to “feminize” society for a hundred years now. They want men to be less aggressive, more “sensitive”, less competitive, less masculine…and of course, have no respect for them when they do.

    These women lead the way when it comes to pacifism (which always leads to worse and longer warfare). They are the most ardent proponents of a “big daddy, take care of me” nanny state.

    They are a large reason we now have Barack Obama leading America to hell.

    Ever since Eve…

    (By the way, men are equally guilty, just in different ways. There are also great women of substance, courage and wisdom, some of whom post here. Like men with those qualities, they are not in the majority!)

    As far as renting to single women, when I was a landlady, the best tenants that I had were a set of three women – they were likely gay – but they were the best renters. They did many of their own repairs, paid their rent on time, and left the house in good condition. The worst tenants were the blacks. Every one of them trashed my houses and left owing me money. Two sets of them got me involved in their domestic violence cases. I purposely rented to blacks, because I felt bad because I thought that they had been “discriminated” against in the past. I guess I learned my lesson on that.

    It’s an odd phenomenon.
    Here, during the (government sponsored) housing boom, they couldn’t build those cookie cutter shacks fast enough.
    Now, post (government caused) housing crash, those same houses sit empty, even with prices reduced by six figures (in some cases). Meanwhile high end apartment units are being spoken for months prior to being completed.

    “and birth and fertility rates are dropping…”

    Well, here in NYC, apparently blacks and “religious” jews didn’t get the memo. Their “assembly lines” are going strong.

    Its called “white guilt.”

    It is the reason that BHO is president.

    It’s not so much a “war on women”, it’s the REGRESSIVE’S war on anyone and anything FEMININE!

    I recently had the pleasure of running into my old 6th grade teacher. (I was in his class about 40 years ago!)

    He told me that the school had completely changed when scads of apartments were constructed all around it.

    He said, “Kids from apartments are totally different kids. They aren’t focused, they act out, they’re angry and cynical. They all have single moms who have live-in boyfriends, and the boyfriends are more interested in the kids than in the moms, if you get my drift.”

    My old teacher was sharp as a tack! He knows what he’s talking about. And now that he’s old, he just friggin’ says it without worrying about PC.

    Kids from apartments are totally different kids. They aren’t focused, they act out, they’re angry and cynical.
    They can also be very receptive to both good and bad influences if intervention takes place early. . (which is why liberals promote this dependency and single parenthood)
    Here, one child of a single parent in those same apartments now sits in prison for carving up another kid over a girlfriend.
    I spent some time with another single parent kid (from the same complex)while he was benched from sports due to bad grades last year after his biological father passed away.
    I think he just wanted to know if someone had any expectations from him.
    BTW he is doing much better now.

    Yes! You can do it all! And you can have Everything too!

    Irony is those are the same words spoken by generations of used car and snake oil salesmen. It’s all well and good to have ambition, but is it too much to ask to temper it with a bit of humility and realism?

    A lot of women have been sold such of load of bunk, and have no intention of recognizing it.

  16. dan says:

    Skyfall : a coincidence that we’ve had socialist -progressive government since the feminists got the vote?


  17. Skyfall says:

    Hey Sam, I think Jodie got over her white guilt!

  18. Jodie says:

    Skyfall and Sam Adams,

    Yes, I hope that was the point of my story. I learned my lesson. We have to look at the reality of life.

    And, the others can’t call me racist, because what I told was the simple truth.

  19. Michelle says:

    After paying all the taxes and inflation THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT to pay for kids…

    Guys are unemployed or barely making is just like the girls.

  20. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    We have to look at the reality of life.
    That is until you get taken by the next white guy who plays the cold weather rule to the last second, and leaves behind hopelessly plugged sewage pipes, and strange chemical residues in unmarked containers.
    Oh, and who could forget those property taxes.
    Some of those gutsy entrepreneurs still holding out for one fine day that they might finally financially see black will say Mexicans are the best renters. Something about paying cash on time and remaining anonymous.

    In the 70’s the Whites my town were occupying the majority of the new apartments built. Many 200 and 300 unit complexes were scattered around the town. When these people bought their first homes and left, many apartments sat empty because the the rent was to high for the jobless negro to afford. About this time section 8 housing programs suddenly made these apartment very affordable. In no time these fairly modern complexes became over run by east town ghetto Negro’s. Overnight, the crime, destruction and pollution that follows them made the few remaining Whites flee in horror. Soon adjoining neighborhoods were being burglarized. And white flight began. Property values dropped.

    This happens in every city that has a viable pop. of Negros. How can this happen in every city and the Negro population and the DWL’s refuse to accept these actions as the cause of this cycle. One simple action to reverse this would be to destroy the complexes when the Negro’s occupy more than 30% of them. If not closed and leveled the Negro will end up destroying it thru lack of responsibility and ignorance if allowed to. In the future, never allow apartment complexes with 40 or more units to be built. Refuse to go section 8. It will save your town the grief and misery.
