Investor Home Purchases.png
By Richard Eimers May 15, 2024

The resurgence of investors in the real estate market has marked a significant turning point, as they now account for 19% of homes sold in the first quarter of this year. This represents a notable return of investor activity, which has outpaced the involvement of individual homebuyers in recent months.
Key Insights from Recent Research

Investor Discounts and Market Impact: Investors often purchase residential properties at a significant discount compared to individual buyers, which varies depending on the size of the investor—from small to institutional. Notably, a 10% increase in houses purchased by investors in a specific area can lead to a 0.20% increase in house prices, suggesting a positive impact on local real estate values.
Investor Buying Behavior: Analysis of the UK market reveals that buy-to-let investors generally pay less than other buyers by about 0.9% to 1.1%, with even larger discounts in less liquid markets. Moreover, properties purchased by these investors tend to spend fewer days on the market 

Strategic Decisions in Buying: Investors are inclined to buy in areas with large rental markets and their activity is influenced by the liquidity of these markets. This strategic approach not only allows them to capitalize on rental opportunities but also enhances the value of their investments through quicker sales and potentially higher resale values.
The current high point in investor home purchases is reshaping the real estate market, making it more competitive and dynamic. The strategic acquisitions by investors contribute to local market health by improving property values and reducing time on market. This trend underscores the robust nature of the real estate investment sector and its critical role in the broader housing market dynamics.
