Scattered site rental development is considered to be one of the most difficult housing strategies to implement successfully. Why is it so difficult to execute effectively? Why are some organizations successfully producing and managing scattered site units despite this difficulty? Is scattered site rental development (SSR), which is the development and management of individual single family homes at various addresses dispersed across a community, a viable alternative for you? In the paragraphs to follow, I will outline a few of the more prominent challenges associated with SSR and provide circumstances that could position your organization to effectively maneuver through the difficulty described. I will also explain why this housing strategy may be a good fit for some organizations.
