The First In-Depth Report of the Single Family Real Estate Investor - the Iceberg Report

The Iceberg Report is a comprehensive analysis of the single-family residential investment industry focusing on investor behavior, practices and how single-family REI investors effect the US economy.

The role of the individual and institutional single-family residential investor is highly undervalued and tremendously under-appreciated. About 10 million individuals, businesses and institutions provide secure housing and jobs for millions of average Americans. 67 million souls live in single-family rentals, a million more properties are added each year employing millions of individuals, to buy, renovate, lease and maintain as safe housing for tenants in affordable to luxury markets.  Single-family rentals have been discovered as a low-risk passive income revenue source and a growth asset in a balanced portfolio or personal retirement plan.

The Iceberg Report proves that portraying single-family real estate investors as slumlords, tenants as victims, and bad rentals destroying good neighborhoods is far from the reality.  Wise investors have goals of happy tenant customers and well-maintained appreciating properties that align with good business practices and good neighborhood outcomes.

The size of this market is well documented. However, the Iceberg Report set out to reveal a segment of the market that has yet to be discovered. The report examines investor behavior by qualified investor segment, fiscal impact and influence on the US economy.  In a collaboration between Real Trends, NEXZUS Publishing Group, the Harris Poll, and 2020 REI, a concerted effort was made to develop a report show the true nature of the single-family REI industry. “These are people who have a vital mission and dedicate their businesses to provide housing for others Small landlords, often your neighbors, and real estate investors provide homes for more than 25 million households. This report begins to map the market and the document reality.”

Single Family Real Estate investing may be big, but it is not monolithic. The Iceberg Report now begins to analyze the qualitative aspects of this market to discover what they invest in, what preferences apply, how they buy, where they buy as well as tipping points and strategies in choosing various property, funding, goods and service alternatives.

Andrew Waite, President of NEXZUS Publishing Group

Using Harris Poll, single-family real estate investors were surveyed nationwide to understand why, where, what and how they invest and manage these properties to provide stable housing and realistic returns on their personal and company investments.

Early data from the Iceberg Report has shown that there are many facets to this complex space. “Real Trends and NEXZUS first surveyed the market in 2008 and 2012 to quantify the market in The Invaluable Investor Studies,” said Andrew Waite President of NEXZUS Publishing Group. “SFR investing may be big, but it is not monolithic. The Iceberg Report now begins to analyze the qualitative aspects of this market to discover what they invest in, what preferences apply, how they buy, where they buy as well as tipping points and strategies in choosing various property, funding, goods and service alternatives.

The report touches several other critical components that shape this market. Key among these are how the single-family real estate investor effects the economy, how investors view their properties (as added rental income or as an intentional business goal), investor decision points, and the investor as a customer,” says Steve Murray, Founder & CEO Real Trends.

“The Iceberg Report raises as many questions as it attempts to answer. This is just the beginning of our team’s analysis on the single-family real estate investor industry,” said Herriage. “This report and follow up analysis of related disciplines and activity will be ongoing; the goal is to track emerging trends and implications in this informally managed multi-trillion-dollar investment industry. The goal of The Iceberg Report is to help investors be recognized as serious contributors to American economic well-being. Secondarily to help investors understand where they fit and help vendors serve this class of customer in better serving their tenant customer.
