This study analyzes the current situation of the rental market of Argentina. It is
characterized by a growing percentage of households demanding houses for
renting up to the point that, for first time in more than 50 years, the ownership rate
dropped between population censuses. Tenants are middle and upper income
families, as the poorest have increasingly owned and/or occupied substandard
housing, sometimes without title. The lack of a mortgage market after 2001
explains the surge of the rental market. Given the increase in rents, some groups
were more adversely affected. Other features affecting the supply and demand in
this market are also analyzed.
