Prior to the final federal eviction moratorium extension last week, Zillow estimates there would have been about 473,000 national eviction filings in July and August.

Zoom in: 406,163 renter households currently behind on rent here in Florida — 120,277 less than in March.

  • 134,341 are estimated to be at risk of eviction.

The big picture: More than 7 million renter households are behind on rent around the country, according to the Census Household Pulse Survey, but Zillow forecasts that only about a third of those (roughly 2.7 million) are actually at risk of eviction.

The bottom line: With continued economic recovery and aid for vulnerable renters and landlords, we've avoided a massive eviction crisis, even as Zillow notes that post-moratorium evictions will likely settle back to pre-pandemic norms.
