Newsfeed: Real Estate Investors Are Buying A Record Share Of US Homes, Sending Prices Soaring

By Tyler Durden

Earlier this week, we reported that Blackrock, America’s largest commercial and residential landlord, just got even bigger with the purchase of 12,000 apartments in the sunbelt (among other assets) when it acquired Preferred Apartment Communities for $5.8 billion. But Blackrock has not been alone in quietly swooping up US residential real estate.

According to the latest data from real-estate consultancy Redfin, real estate investors – i.e., those who purchase real estate not with the intention of living in it but in expectations of reselling and/or renting it out – bought a record 18.4% of the homes that were sold in the U.S. during the fourth quarter of 2021, up from 12.6% a year earlier and a revised rate of 17.4% in the third quarter.
