I had a new crop of -- it popping up for the collapse of foreclosed homes on the market private equity firms -- snatching up these homes fixing them up and then.
Betting billions of renters will line up for them so is this the -- Housing market -- joining me now is an executive vice president of one of these firms Carrington mortgage holdings Rick -- direct thank you so much for joining us.
What is I mean is this the way to go to snatch up all of these distressed homes and I think of -- foreclosed home think of a home this pretty beaten up perhaps.
Maybe not in the best shape certainly maybe not in the best.
That that actually is wrong as often as it's correct historically that's what foreclosures look like but today.
They cut across also issue economic because strata and and there -- neighborhoods that that would probably surprised if so so it this is one of the answers to getting housing back on its feet but.
It's certainly not going to cure the housing market all by itself so look so they'll -- you -- do you buy in bulk.
And then how much yeah you have -- wrenching you're looking on the is -- -- C one positive cash flow but -- and how long do you hold them full.
All good questions most people are not buying in bulk right now because there aren't a lot of -- pools available.
So for the most part were roll -- scaring the the properties that are listed in trying to buy the ones that fit our business model.
Along those lines you are really rehabilitating these things you're looking for.
Usually single digit return on investment on on your -- On your rental rates annually.
And I and then in our case we're looking at buying in markets where we believe home prices will appreciate over the next.

When do you think home values were really stop to come back Rick.
-- those people -- tell us we've hit the bottom and coming back cop -- value one of those and how long before we get to what we you could consider.
I I I think we're talking about a new normal actually the that the fact of the matter is we've probably hit the bottom.
At least and in most markets across the country it's going to be a slow slog of -- recovery.
Well we're gonna bump along that bottom really for the next couple of years before home prices start to.
Start to go up in a sustainable way probably late 2014 early 2015 and very pointedly talking abuse it's not.
Good does so Erica sort of get this question is so really come back to the beginning tool of this you think more people are prepared to rank mouth and actually own a home.
Problem maybe not more people actually but we're we're going to see rental rates continue to increase we're going to see homeownership rates continue to dwindle.
For the next two years before they they start to correct and move back up.
