Buying a home? You still have to compete against the big money bringing all-cash. But it’s getting a little easier. All-cash deals made up 38% of all home sales in the second quarter, according to RealtyTrac, down from 42% in the prior quarter. One reason is that big institutional buyers, those buying at least 10 homes a year, are finding fewer deals. They accounted for 4.7% of all homes sold, down from a peak of 6% in 2013. As the housing market recovered, these investors were buying up homes in deeply troubled markets, like Phoenix and Las Vegas. Those bulk buys helped to reverse the slide in home prices.
