In fact some communities of new homes for rent are starting to look more like an apartment complex based on a multifamily model but with single-family homes. How well this is going to work for the real estate investor depends on a number of factors, John Burns, CEO of Real Estate Consulting, writes. He cautions that build-to-rent could work in some areas but not everywhere.

Even though she had identified a general part of town where she wanted to locate, there was still a lot of time spent driving, looking at units that did not fit the requirements and spending long frustrating days.

However the abbreviations describing apartment features looked pretty silly on the web where the items could easily have been spelled out.

Did renters know what these abbreviations meant?

Know what any of these used to mean? (hint: I will give you the answer below)
