Wall Street Investors have taken over the US Housing Market. Are they about to CRASH it?
Real estate investor demand in the Housing Market has surged over the last year. Heading into 2021 investors were buying nearly 30% of all homes in America, heavily contributing the current Housing Bubble America is in.
Zillow Price / Rent Data:
This Investor Market Bubble is occurring just as first-time home buyers continue to be priced out of the market. This impact is worst in cities such as Atlanta, San Jose, and Los Angeles, where investors are buying close to 40% of all the homes. Housing markets such as Salt Lake City, Memphis, and San Francisco also have a very high share of investors and speculators purchasing real estate (California is especially bad).
Many people fear that the surge in investor demand – particularly in California’s Housing Market – is part of the Great Reset and will keep prices high forever. And mean that first-time buyers and small investors will never get a chance to own a home (“Own Nothing and You Will Be Happy”).
However, the impact of investors in a housing market doesn’t tend to be permanent. Data from previous US Housing Crashes suggests that areas with more investors, as well as 2nd home buyers, experience more volatility. Home prices and real estate values go up more in the Bubble, but then go down more in the Housing Crash.
Markets like Phoenix and Las Vegas are great examples of this. These metros experienced 50-60% decline in home prices during the 2007-12 Housing Crash. One of the primary reasons was due to a high share of speculative demand in the market in the Bubble that suddenly vanished in the Crash.
Meanwhile, cities like Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Albany, and New Orleans have a relatively low share of investor demand. Interestingly, these “boring” Housing Markets were some of the best performers in the last Housing Crash because of this reason. Less speculation and investor demand in the Bubble meant less of a decline in the Crash.
