Rising mortgage rates have sidelined many homebuyers, but they are an opportunity for institutional investors as homebuilders look to sell off their properties.

“What we see is that builders have to hit their quotas,” Kinloch Partners co-founder, CEO and president Bruce McNeilage told Yahoo Finance Live. (video above), and are buying in bulk using them as rental homes.”

As a result, homebuilders are driving down prices. About 24% of home builders are reporting lower home prices, up from 19% last month, said his NAHB Chairman Jerry, a home builder and developer from Savannah, Georgia. Mr Conter said.

The weakening of the market could be a factor in “people not stepping in and people stopping to look at models or look at suburban or subdivision homes,” McNeilage added.

Another problem: rising mortgage interest rates has reached nearly 7%, and affordability continues to suffer.

Thanks to rising construction costs and aggressive monetary policy, home builders are looking to offload supply quickly. This trend has led builders to think about incentives to increase sales.

“We’re getting five to 10 emails or phone calls a day. It’s really picked up,” McNeilage said. We are also looking at discounts of 10% to 20% off the listed retail price for bulk purchases.”

These terms of sale are nationwide because companies build these homes for a specific purpose to sell to investors, McNeilage said. But there is still too much supply on the market.

“There are too many products now. There are too many houses that are just sitting on the ground. And these builders need to move these houses,” McNeilage said.
