Individual residential real estate investors are concerned over the impact that rising home prices and the lack of housing inventory are having on their real estate investments. Perceived risk of losing market share to iBuyers and other institutional investors is also on the rise.

RealtyTrac® recently completed its second RealtyTrac Investor Sentiment Survey, surveying over 300 individual real estate investors across the country to find out how they viewed the market, what problems and opportunities they faced, and what their impression was of today’s environment for real estate investing.

  • 48% of investors believed that the investment market is worse or much worse than it was a year ago
  • Almost 63% of survey respondents listed the rising cost of homes as a major challenge for residential real estate investing
  • The lack of available inventory was identified as the second-biggest challenge (57%) by the investors

“Real estate investors continue to face the dual challenges of low inventory and rising home prices,” said Rick Sharga, executive vice president at RealtyTrac, an ATTOM company. “Coupled with strong competition from traditional homebuyers and rising material and labor costs, it’s no wonder that individual investors believe that the market is less favorable today than it was a year ago.”

About 48% of investors believed that the investment market is worse or much worse than it was a year ago, and 36% believe that conditions will remain the same over the next six months. Rising home prices (63%) have replaced lack of inventory (57%) as the #1 challenge cited by investors, although they trade places in the investor six-month outlook. Competition from traditional homebuyers (28%) fell out of the top three problems for investors and was replaced by increased material costs (36%).

Still, many investors believe that ongoing competition from homebuyers will continue to be a challenge, and 27% said it will likely remain a top concern six months from now. The unprecedented demand from homebuyers has created an unusual market dynamic for individual investors: instead of competing with larger institutional investors, mom-and-pop investors find themselves competing with more traditional consumer homebuyers.
