PD&R Quarterly Update: Institutional Investors in Housing

HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research

On December 6, 2022, HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) will host a PD&R Quarterly Update virtual event focused on institutional investors in the housing market. 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. 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.

Secretary Marcia L. Fudge, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
