All you have to do is drive around Hutchinson, MN to see that there are many rental units available right now.  The last time I remember this many vacant units was back in 1999 when Hutchinson Technology had a significant layoff of employees.  I suspect that is the same reason we are now seeing so many for rent signs and incentives being offered by landlords.  The good news is that the tenants will be the ones who enjoy the benefits of this glut of rental units.  As you drive around you will also notice many SOLD signs up on homes that have been for sale.  The real estate market continues to be healthy here in Hutchinson, MN.  This is good for both buyers and sellers who are taking advantage of very low interest rates and a good inventory to chose from.
