iBuyer Sales To Investors Soar

  • February 23, 2022

Interesting article on iBuyer sales to investors suggesting that 20% of iBuyer sales are to real estate investors.

This is slightly higher than the percentage of overall sales of residential properties to investors. RealtyTrac’s Winter 2022 Investor Purchase Report showed that investors purchased almost 17% of the homes sold in the third quarter of 2021, so traditional homeowners are selling their properties to investors as well.

As mortgage rates rise, investors with available cash may have an advantage over traditional consumer homebuyers that are facing the challenge of rising prices and rising interest rates both at the same time.
