Survey Findings

  • The current survey finds real estate investors believe the U.S. economy has quickly rebounded from the economy shutting down, but full economic recovery will be long and slow.

Three quarters of respondents are full-time or part-time real estate investors. Many are small-business entrepreneurs who fix and flip properties, build new homes, and own and operate residential and commercial real estate.

Survey Data

The full survey report can be downloaded here, and the presentation slides are shown below.
