Companies buying residential property is relatively only a new thing, AND it only really started as interest rates plummeted, as interest rates go up (especially the forecasted long term rates cycle we see now) wholesale purchases of residential property is less attractive as companies taking them out are all of a sudden paying massive amounts more of interest payments, as well as banks will see them as more high risk investments thus limiting lending.
Go watch below. Very interesting talk about what have said about BlackRock and other Financial Companies buying mass amounts of housing in the states.
if you wanted to park cash during inflation things like, OIL, gold etc are much better safe havens than property. only an idiot would park money in housing for inflation, unless they are willing and able to wait multiple years to get their money back.
They started investing when the world pushed out more money than ever before, by orders of magnitude, and shut down supply chains.
But I'm sure those trillions of dollars are managed by idiots, that's who society works after all - idiots are pushed to succeed while smart people complain that the system is unfair and don't listen when someone tells them the chiseled in granite truth about what is about to happen.
Gold and oil backed currency? No. Land backed. The wealthiest people in the world are buying up bulk land for a reason.
