February 16, 2022 by Dana Anderson and Sheharyar Bokhari


  • Investors bought 18.4% of the U.S. homes that were purchased in the fourth quarter, a record high.

  • Investor demand is stronger than ever as home prices increase, allowing investors to charge higher rents and sell flipped homes for higher prices.

  • Real estate investors bought roughly 80,000 U.S. homes worth a total of $50 billion in the fourth quarter, up significantly from a year earlier.

  • Mid-priced homes are becoming more popular with investors, making up 32% of investor purchases in the fourth quarter, a record high. Low-priced homes are still most popular with investors, making up 37% of purchases.
