The makers of a survey aimed at assessing the impacts of COVID-19 on Hawaii’s housing rental market are soliciting participation from landlords and property managers.

The Economic Research Organization at the University of Hawaii, also known as UHERO, has partnered with landlord and property management groups statewide to collect data about the number of tenants struggling to pay rent and the number of rental properties at risk of being lost to sale or conversion.

But UHERO also wants to reach mom and pop landlords and family huis who may not be a member of the partner organizations and are typically underrepresented in data collection efforts.

Landlords and property managers can access the 23-question survey here. It takes about 15 minutes to complete.
