While the fast-acting investors of the past did help heal the market, this new breed of investors will sustain it.
“They are buying intelligently, choosing great cities with stable performance and buying nice houses for long term rental,” says Rand. “Texas, Carolinas, Tennessee, Ohio are all getting much busier now, but with that conservative business strategy.”
“It’s the mid cap investor that I see as the greatest opportunity,” says Rand. “Folks investing between $5 million and $100 million in single family homes in a few cities.” These are a massive new corporate clientele for the real estate industry that, according to Rand, will impact the housing market in a largely positive fashion.
The value investor is responsible with their market choice, slowly but surely integrating themselves as a permanent class of reliable homeowner.
