U.S. Home Flipping Increases In 2016 To A 10-Year High

U.S. Home Flipping Increases 3 Percent In 2016 To A 10-Year High

This should turn out well…

IRVINE, Calif. – March 9, 2017 — ATTOM Data Solutions, curator of the nation’s largest fused property database, today released its 2016 Year-End U.S. Home Flipping Report, which shows that 193,009 single family homes and condos were flipped — sold in an arms-length transfer for the second time within a 12-month period — in 2016, up 3.1 percent from 2015 to the highest level since 2006, when 276,067 single family homes and condos were flipped.

Home flips in 2016 accounted for 5.7 percent of all single family home and condos sales during the year, up from 5.5 percent in 2015 to a three-year high but still well below the peak in 2005, when 338,207 single family homes and condos were flipped representing 8.2 percent of all sales.

For this report, a home flip is defined as a property that is sold in an arms-length sale for the second time within a 12-month period based on publicly recorded sales deed data collected by ATTOM Data Solutions in more than 950 counties accounting for more than 80 percent of the U.S. population (see full methodology below).

The report also shows that 126,256 entities — including both individuals and institutions — flipped homes in 2016, up less than 1 percent from 2015 to the highest number since 2007, when 143,266 entities flipped properties.

Meanwhile, the share of flipped homes that were purchased by the flipper with financing increased to an eight-year high of 31.5 percent in 2016 while the median age of homes flipped increased to 37 years — a new high going back to 2000, as far back as data is available — and the median square footage of homes flipped decreased to 1422 — a new record low going back to 2000.

Rest here…

    HUD sold my void note to Bay View Mortgage.Note is void because the flipper did not own the house, only the lot. The flipper was in cahoots withe title agent, broker and possibly even the State of Nevada and currently being investigated by HUDs own OIG. Flipping frauds are being passed down the line to new servicers at taxpayers expense yet HUD refuses to perform due diligence by talking to homeowners before paying off the banks with FHA insurance money.
