In Q1 2013 institutional investors (residential property sales to non-lending entities that purchased at least 10 properties in a calendar year) were at the peak of their game, accounting for 8.9 percent of all home sales. However, according to the latest ATTOM Data Solutions quarterly home sales report the percent of home sales to institutional investors accounted for only 1.7 percent of all single family home and condo sales in Q1 2018, down from 3.6 percent in Q4 2017 and down from 2.0 percent in Q1 2017 to the lowest level as far back as data is available, Q1 2000. Although that doesn’t mean there weren’t hot spots of real estate markets for these institutional investors. In fact, Memphis, Tennessee is still bucking the national trend with 7.0 percent of all sales going to these institutional investors, while Atlanta, Georgia increased from 3.6 percent in Q1 2017 to 5.5 percent…could Atlanta be the next Amazon headquarters? Are these institutional investors seeing trends in ATTOM Data that you want to see as well?
