    new housing "rental" foreclosure bubble creating massive pressure on rents

    read an interesting article on Business Insider today where the push to buy foreclosures and short sales as investments buy hedge funds in many markets is driving down rents as most of these are sitting vacant, an interesting twist on where this low interest rate money bubble is going next. of course people driven out of foreclosures have to go somewhere to rent also, but is there any real demand for rentals now? people can just rent a house cheap in most formerly distressed markets.
