David Cooper http://www.lasvegaswinner.org Blackstone, a New York-based group with billions of dollars in investments and offices from London to Tokyo, has been snapping up low-priced homes across the region, from Elk Grove toÂ Citrus Heights,Â at a rate of about 40 a week.
It marks the first time a major investment firm has bought in Sacramento on such a scale â€“ a direct result of the thousands of houses left vacant by foreclosures in recent years and offered at fire-sale prices.
"Prior to the current housing cycle, it was essentially unheard of" for majorÂ investment fundsÂ to buy single-family homes, said Stuart Gabriel, director of the Ziman Center for Real Estate at UCLA. "The exodus fromÂ home ownershipÂ and the dislocation of homeowners has been unprecedented."
