Investors Who Bought Foreclosed Homes in Bulk Look to Sell

Wonder how they will get clear titles to these if they have not done so already?


A year ago, buying foreclosed homes to rent out was the sure-thing trade for investment firms backed by money from private equity companies, hedge funds and pension systems. But with the supply of cheap foreclosed homes dwindling, some early investors are looking to cash out a bit by flipping homes to competitors.

The Waypoint Real Estate Group, one of the first companies to raise money from private investors to buy foreclosed homes, is quietly shopping as many as 2,000 houses in California that it acquired in the last few years in several private investment funds, said three people who had been briefed on the matter but were not authorized to discuss it. The homes, which are largely rented, are being shown to other companies backed by investor money that have also scooped up distressed houses in states including Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and Nevada.

Waypoint is considering selling about half of its 4,000 homes. Some of the biggest institutional investors in the market for foreclosed homes — companies like the Blackstone Group, American Homes 4 Rent and American Residential Properties — have slowed their pace of acquisitions in response to an increase in home prices and a dearth of foreclosed homes that do not require significant renovation.

  1. Hopefully it is a sign of panic. Could we be that lucky? The truth is being exposed. If you had a handful of stolen houses, would you want to get rid of them also before the stolen houses were taken back by the real owners without compensation for the stolen house? Like a car, I dont believe the purchaser or holder of a car or house without title would be paid a dime for the stolen car or house.
