Oakbrook Terrace, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/19/2016 --2016 is a sellers' market but with smart analytics, investors can uncover attractive opportunities in the residential market. TheHomeSites conducted a study of 1,100 properties on its platform that are located across 5 states (California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, and Texas) and found the following interesting observations:

2. Average estimated IRR (Internal Rate of Return that measures total returns during the investment life cycle) for Fix and Flip properties was 190% while average estimated IRR for Buy and Hold properties was 26%. However, there are more Buy and Hold opportunities compared to Fix and Flip opportunities (See Fix and Flip Opportunities and Buy and Hold Opportunities charts)
