Och-Ziff Capital Management has apparently decided that being a landlord is not all it's cracked up to be.
The $31 billion New York-based hedge fund has told its investment partner, 643 Capital Management, that it wants out of the foreclosed home space, reports Reuters, citing people familiar with the matter.
Och-Ziff has a portfolio of about 300 foreclosed homes in northern California which it purchased, renovated and turned into rental properties, said the sources.

The median price for a new or resale house in the San Francisco Bay Area in August was up 10.8% year on year at $410,000 according to DataQuick.
