Investor Fueled Increases in Home Prices

Capital Economics (a leading independent macro economic research company) pointed out in a recent report, that while certain states are seeing above average gains in home prices, there are concerns being raised that some states are seeing “unsustainable, investor-fueled” increases in home prices.

Where does Florida lay regarding increases in home prices? Is it sustainable or not?

Capital Economics concluded Florida’s housing recovery and growth is sustainable (not temporary) based on factors such as personal income and employment growth. The Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) index registered a 7 percent year-over-year gain in the third quarter of 2012.

This reality also explains why we are finding homebuilders breaking new ground in Florida.

In other words, Florida’s growth is organic, at least for the time being, and therefore it makes investing in Florida real estate big business, with opportunities to yield a nice return on your real estate investment.

Managing Single Family Homes for Portfolio Investors

Investors are looking outside the stock market and more towards residential single family investment opportunities as a source for yielding a greater return on their investment.

Investors are taking advantage of this new asset class looking to invest in one of the numerous small and large single family residential funds being offered in the market place. These funds typically deliver cash on cash yields that range from 6% to 9% with an exit strategy that can potentially offer returns at 15-20 %. The goal of many of these funds is to sell the houses within three to seven years in one of several ways: a public offering, a sale to an existing REIT or to a large institutional buyer or pension fund. This translates to a great opportunity to purchase single family homes, rent them out and take advantage of the real estate market. Mom-and-pop outfits, investment firms, hedge funds, private equity partnerships and real estate investors have all become big buyers of single family residential properties.

It is one thing for these funds to buy these properties, it’s quite another to manage them. Managing single family homes is time consuming and requires knowledge. Many of these funds are not local and therefore not equipped to manage their portfolios. This is a passive investment for these investors who will find managing the property a distraction. They are not adequately or efficiently equipped to field calls from tenants or vendors, or to deal with rental and maintenance issues. That’s where property managers come in. Property management companies are a key component to the financial success of these funds. A good property management company lets the investors focus on what they do best-making the next deal.
