coin houseAccording to an article on DSNews.com, investors are no longer buying as much of the real estate inventory–but instead, current homeowners are.

HousePulse attributes this change to the rising home prices and decrease in distressed inventory; home purchases from investors are now at 19.7 percent, down from 23.1 percent.

Current homeowners, in contrast, make 44.6 percent of the housing market purchases (instead of the 43.8 percent in May).
