Investing in the Single-Family Home Rental Market

For the first time in Florida history, real estate [1] investment firms are investing in the single-family home rental market, replacing so-called “condo vulture” investors.Singe-Family Home Investment [2]

Private equity funds, hedge funds, and REITs have purchased at least 4,000 single-family homes [3] for the purpose of renting them out. These companies pay cash for a cluster of foreclosed or bank-owned homes [4], rent them out for a couple years, and then sell them for a profit. This business model works because home prices are low, rent prices are high, and the market is expected to bounce back in a couple years.

These homes are a much better investment than condos because in addition to the eventual payoff when the property is sold, single-family home investors can also make a profit while renting out the homes.

Previously, it was almost impossible to buy homes in clusters because they went on the market randomly and were usually spread out over a wide geographic location. This is no longer the case because the Federal Housing Finance Agency is now selling foreclosed homes in bundles.

Investors also have the option of hiring a local property management company to keep up with maintenance, rent collection and more, making the process even easier.

If you have the venture capital [5], it is a great time to start a Florida real estate investment company. For foreign investors [6], this could also be a path to a visa [4]if the investment is sufficient and will create jobs.
