Investor activity has increased since the start of the pandemic, driven by investors with more than 1,000 properties. Their increased activity limits homeownership opportunities for prospective first-time homebuyers and contributes to the racial wealth and homeownership gaps. HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research will feature the topic of institutional investors in the housing market as part of its upcoming PD&R Quarterly Update on December 6, 2022. This event will highlight research on this issue and explore actions that various levels of government, along with nonprofits and other mission-driven entities, can take to drive supply to owner-occupants and mission-driven entities.
