Small Investor Home Buying on the Rise in U.S.

According to new research from CoreLogic, U.S. home purchasing activity among investors is on the rise. In 2018, the share of home sales bought by investors reached its highest level in two decades. However, this increase isn't from big institutional buyers, but rather from smaller investors just getting into the game. What's more, these investors appear to be focusing in the starter-home tier, giving first-time homebuyers a run for their money while also chasing homes in markets with relatively high rents.
