Next 2 Years is Prime Time for Real Estate Investors

Real estate investors are likely to be three times more active than other types of home-buyers in their local markets within the next two years, according to a national survey by Realtor.com operator Move Inc.

Market research firm GfK Custom Research North America conducted the survey on behalf of Move from April 11-15, 2011. The survey included telephone interviews of 1,200 U.S. adults, of which about 200 were identified as real estate investors.  Data was weighted by age, sex, education, race and geographic region.

A third of real estate investors are planning to buy in the next 24 months, compared to 8.6% of typical home-buyers — those planning to purchase a primary residence, vacation home or retirement property.  Another 9.1% of typical home-buyers, and 28% of investors, plan to purchase between two and five years from now.

Among the investors, half plan to hold their properties for five or more years while 11% expect to sell within a year of purchase, according to the survey.
