Morningstar Credit Ratings Selected To Rate Single-Family Rental Offering

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar Credit Ratings, LLC today announced it has been selected to rate five classes of single-family rental pass-through certificates from Invitation Homes 2013- SFR1 (IH 2013- SFR1), a single-family rental securitization. IH 2013- SFR1 is the first issuance of rated bonds backed by the cash flows and value of single-family rental properties.

"By providing new-issue ratings for single-family rental securities, we're now able to bring our transparent and investor-focused model to another area of the credit ratings space," Vickie Tillman, president of Morningstar Credit Ratings, said. "Our mission is to create great products that help investors reach their financial goals, and we hope that providing new-issue ratings will provide investors with another source of analysis as they conduct due diligence."

This is the first single-family rental transaction Morningstar will rate. These pools of single-family rental properties are generally investment properties with existing tenants or available for rent to new tenants. Morningstar's "Single-Family Rental Securitization Ratings Methodology" for new-issue and surveillance ratings of securities backed by pools of single-family rental properties is available at After Morningstar publishes the preliminary ratings and pre-sale report, it will monitor and update its ratings as necessary.  

A "Guide to the Morningstar Single-Family Rental Quantitative Analysis and Subordination Model," which details Morningstar's quantitative model for assessing single-family rental securities, is also available at
