Invitation Homes Plans New Joint Venture. What Does This Mean for Investors?

Founded during the Great Recession, Invitation Homes (NYSE: INVH) has slowly expanded its portfolio of single-family rental homes across the United States since 2012. It now owns and operates 80,000 homes across 16 markets and is the largest operator of single-family rental homes in the country.

With some analysts forecasting we could see an uptick in foreclosures and distressed homes next year, is there an opportunity for Invitation Homes to purchase more homes and grow its portfolio? The company seems to think so. It recently announced it has formed a $375 million joint venture with Rockpoint Group to acquire single-family homes and operate them as rentals. Invitation Homes will contribute $75 million, and Rockport will put in $300 million. But that’s just the start. The joint venture eventually plans to deploy over $1 billion to buy and renovate homes in the West and South, where Invitation Homes is already strong.

While commercial real estate transactions have been down in 2020 with the uncertainty in the market, Welltower (NYSE: WELL), one of the major three real estate investment trusts (REITs) in the healthcare space, is turning heads with their recent announcement. The REIT has just announced a handful of dispositions that total $1.3 billion. Even for a REIT with a $23.41 billion market cap, that’s a lot of real estate. What will these transactions mean for investors moving forward?

What Welltower is selling

The selling off of these properties began in mid-September, when they sold a senior housing portfolio for $702 million. This portfolio was part of a joint venture with a company that managed the properties. Welltower owned 80% of this joint venture.

This deal definitely wasn’t a fire sale by any means. This sale represented a 5.1% cap rate. This sort of valuation is a good sign for the

Regal Cinemas Closure: What it Means for Real Estate Investors

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted businesses across a wide range of industries, and movie theaters are no exception. And on October 5, Cineworld Group (LSE:CINE), the parent company of Regal Cinemas, announced plans to shut down all of its U.S. and U.K. movie theaters less than two months after those establishments were able to reopen.

The reason? It’s not a lack of consumer demand, but rather, a lack of movies to screen. With so many film releases being postponed due to the pandemic, movie theaters are now in a position where they want to welcome guests but don’t have content to entice them. Cineworld CEO Mooky Greidinger likened the situation to that of a grocery store with no food to sell — there’s little point in opening the doors.

Cineworld’s announcement comes on the heels of the newest James Bond movie being postponed yet again to April of 2021. The

(Bloomberg) — Investors are pouring record amounts of cash into new U.K. rental homes, betting that demand will remain high as the pandemic batters the economy and puts ownership out of reach for more first-time buyers.

Investment in purpose-built rental apartments and houses will hit 4 billion pounds ($5.2 billion) this year, up from 2.8 billion pounds in 2019, according to a report from broker Knight Frank and residential property review site HomeViews.

Is U.S. Real Estate The Answer For International Investors During This Time?

Abbas Hashmi is an international Family Office and Sovereign Wealth Fund focused expert. Managing Director at Crito Capital.

Investing in income-producing rental property can provide you with a solid return, depending on your specific goals and market. It is an especially attractive investment at a time like this — when the stock market is volatile, interest rates are low and housing prices are increasing. If you are looking to invest outside of your native country because of the uncertainty triggered by Covid-19, then rental properties in New York and New Jersey may be an ideal avenue to explore.

In my experience, many investors do not realize that choosing to purchase an out-of-country income property is one of the smartest ways to spread risk, earn higher returns, and invest more efficiently and soundly from a tax perspective.

Investors wait to capitalize on pandemic-related foreclosures

Investors are rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of a surge in repossessed homes as millions of homeowners are believed to have fallen behind on their mortgage repayments, putting them at risk of losing their homes once moratoriums end.

The Wall Street Journal says that investors are expecting a “potential bonanza” of distressed properties to be auctioned off, in addition to the emergence of a new wave of renters.

Around 3.5 million home lines are currently in forbearance, as of September 6, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. And there are about a million more homeowners who’re believed to be behind on their mortgage payments, who haven’t entered into a forbearance program.

Now, investors are getting ready for thousands of those homes to come onto the market. Private individuals and investment firms have bought more than 1 in every 10 homes sold in the U.S. over

What Is the Right of Foreclosure? A Guide for Investors

Though no investor ever wants to think about the possibility of facing foreclosure, it does happen. If you ever find yourself with unmanageable mortgage debt, knowing your rights could mean the difference between reinstating your loan and getting evicted.

Here’s a guide to the right of foreclosure.

What is the right of foreclosure?

In real estate, the right of foreclosure refers to a lender’s ability to repossess a property through foreclosure proceedings if the mortgage holder defaults on monthly payments. Generally, state and local laws will regulate the conditions under which foreclosure proceedings can occur. However, investors and homeowners alike should know the mortgage they signed when buying the home will also detail the conditions under which the lender can take back possession of the property.
