A Solution For Fix-and-Flip Investors Facing Today's Tightening Housing Supply

Patch of Land's CMO, Robert Greenberg, is a member of the Forbes Real Estate Council and recently shared his thoughts on new development opportunities for Fix and Flip investors. With a tightening housing supply, and increased demand, what are investors to do? See what Robert has to say on why real estate investors are starting to look at new construction as an alternative to renovating properties.

How can you find investment properties in a housing market with limited inventory — where you’re competing not only with buyers looking for a primary residence, but also with other real estate investors?
