Think The Housing Market Is In Trouble? Big Money Investors Disagree


Think The Housing Market Is In Trouble? Big Money Investors Disagree

Despite what you might be seeing in the news, big money investors have not given up on the residential real estate market

What does Wall Street know that Main Street does not?

According to Yardi Matrix’s report, Build-to-Rent Fuels Growth in Institutional Single-Family Rental Market, institutions funded $2.5 billion in single-family rental acquisitions in 2021 and committed more than $60 billion in capital to buying single-family rental homes in 2022.

Yardi anticipates that by 2030, institutions will own about 7.6 million homes, accounting for almost half (40 percent) of all single-family-rental units in the country.

And we’re already starting to see the takeover happen. According to CoreLogic, investors purchased 26% of single family homes in Q4 of 2022. Even with high acquisition costs fueled by interest rates, this is only a 2% drop from the high of 28% in February 2022, and is much higher than at any point pre-pandemic.

Stories of institutions and big pocketed investors betting on the residential housing market are starting to become more common:

What Does This Mean for You?

Big investors are undeterred by the volatile real estate market. They know that the high demand for homes and low supply means residential real estate is a safe investment. If banks, hedge funds, and big money are purchasing homes in an environment when acquisition costs are so high, what will happen when interest rates come down?

There are a lot of people fearful about the housing market, and smart investors are taking advantage of this – and you should be too!

There is a window of opportunity right now. Consumer confidence is low (although it is rising) and many prospective homebuyers and investors are sitting on the sidelines or trying hard to sell their properties. This means there are more homes available to purchase at a discounted price, and even room for more negotiation for seller credits to assist with down payment, closing costs, or an interest rate buydown.

The opportunity in housing will not be around forever. Don’t let it pass you by!
