New investor actively seeking owner-occupied purchase

4 Replies

I’ve been working with a realtor for several weeks. I’ve made a couple of offers on multi family properties.  My realtor isn’t quite seeing my perspective as an investor. I want to submit an offer on a home but my realtor doesn’t think it’s going to work because it’s below list price.  The problem is the comps provided by the realtor indicate the property is listed well above what has been selling in the market and does not have any features that sets is apart. Should I go forward and submit an offer on my own, look for a new realtor, or increase my offer knowing it’s more than what the home should be sold for.  I’m in New Jersey and multi family market is very competitive. 

@Simone Mays Realtor’s are required to submit the offer as you instructed. If they refuse you can  talk to the supervising broker or find another realtor to represent you. 

You can go direct to seller if you’re not licensed as well but they will have to have the agent representing them write up the offer.

@Greg Dickerson Thank you for taking the time to reply.  I will certainly speak with my realtor and explain my position and perspective.  If they flat out refuse to submit the offer then I will speak with their supervising broker.  Hopefully it won't come to that.  In the future I will look for a realtor who aligns more with my goals.
