- [By Will Ashworth]
PSA fills a need that's not likely to disappear. In the latest fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2013, PSA generated core funds from operations of $7.44 — 11.4% higher than in 2012. Same-store rental income increased 5.4% year-over-year due to higher rents and higher occupancies. It's a winning combination that over time has proved successful. Although it's only yielding 3.3% at the moment, it's a very stable stock, having seen a negative return just once in the past decade. I like its odds.Pure-Play REITs: American Homes 4 Rent (AMH)
This is the brand child of Public Storage founder Wayne Hughes, who started the company in 2011 to take advantage of falling prices in the single-family home market. Private equity firms such as Blackstone Group (BX), Hughes and others have been actively buying up houses on the cheap with plans to rent them out until prices rise to the point where they're no longer worth holding on to. As a result of this intense competition, prices have risen faster than anticipated — slowing! the number of home purchases made by institutional investors.

After an initial bump in Silver Bay, the stock has had a horrible 2013, now trading close to all-time lows. Recently, a couple of other IPOs in the sector have come to market with weak receptions. Both American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AMH ) and American Residential Properties (NYSE: ARPI ) offer different twists to the general thesis of investing in single-family rental properties to take advantage of the weakness in housing prices and the increased demand for rentals.
