I am trying to figure out whether I should subscribe to Loopnet's premium membership or find a commercial broker. My goal is to buy one or more MF properties in the Sun Belt states with decent upside potential. Properties can be anywhere from $500K to up to $2MM or even more.
One advantage of going with loopnet is that I work quite hard and can spend a lot of time being thorough in evaluating all listings, including FSBO listings. I don't think a broker will put in the same kind of effort.
On the other hand, if I can find a really good broker, I can get local insight that would otherwise take me a long time to acquire on my own.
Any suggestions or advice?
