Slightly More than Half of Real Estate Investors Lose


Destin, FL – April 26, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Every time someone wins investing on Wall Street another investor loses. That may also be closer to reality investing in real estate these days, according to a new survey.

An opinion poll found that nearly half of all respondents lost money investing in real estate, while nearly an equal number managed to turn a profit. The new Housing Predictor survey found that respondents aren’t as enthused about investing in real estate as they once may have been five years after the real estate bubble popped and millions of homeowners and investors lost property to foreclosure.

Historically housing leads the U.S. economy out of economic recessions. Housing markets in more than a dozen states are forecast to experience higher home prices in 2011. Foreclosures are offering a lower priced inventory of homes to buyers with 7-million homeowners, who have lost their homes since the housing mess started.

Housing Predictor tracks more than 230 local housing markets in all 50 U.S. states, forecasts markets across the country, regularly takes opinion polls to judge visitors attitudes regarding the real estate market and keeps visitors up to date on real estate news and mortgage rates.
