RealtyTrac premiered its first-ever investor insider report, titled Real Estate Investor Purchase and Finance Patterns 2011 to 2013.

The research looks at investor habits in the real estate market during the past few years.

It covers the types of properties purchased, while studying cash-purchases, financed purchases and property values among other topics.

Key metrics covered in the report include, transaction by financing type, financing by lender, transaction by situation and transaction by amount.

"The new investor insight report is the first of its kind and offers customers an exclusive look into investor decisionmaking that has never been done on this scale before," said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. "We examined in-depth a variety of factors from cash sales to lender financing that impact real estate investing and offers key insight that no one else in the market can deliver."

The report is available for purchase at the Mortgage Bankers Association’s 100th Annual Convention and Expo. More information can be found here
