What’s an iBuyer?

  Today's new real estate player is 'institutional flippers' more commonly known as the iBuyer, or 'instant buyers.'

The record-low supply of homes for sale coupled with very strong buyer demand is leading to a rise in bidding wars on many homes. Because of this, homes today often sell for more than the list price. In some cases, they sell for…
