Missouri Home Purchases By Institutional Investors And Cash Buyers Falls By Half From Year Ago

Institutional investors (entities that bought at least 10 residential properties in the last 12 months) are having much less of an impact on the housing market throughout Missouri than they were a year ago, according to a newly released report by RealtyTrac.  According to the report, during the 4th quarter of 2014 three percent (3%) of all residential sales in Missouri were to institutional investors, a decline of 50% from the 4th quarter of 2013 when institutional investors accounted for 6% of all residential sales in Missouri.

Cash home sales in Missouri has fallen by almost half as well, with cash sales during the 4th quarter in Missouri accounting for 10.3% of all residential sales, down nearly 50% from the 4th quarter of 2013 when a whopping 20.1% of all residential sales in Missouri were to cash buyers.  This is not surprising as a lot of investors (both institutional as well as individual) are cash buyers so as the number of distressed home sales continues to fall, so does the presence of investors in the market ergo there go the cash sales too.
