RE Agents Underserving the Community???

1 Reply

    I have noticed that investors are being massively underserved by real estate agents. I am attempting to bridge that disconnect so we can get the service that we deserve. 

    I find it super interesting to hear what made investors take action and purchase their first investment property. Was there a specific moment that triggered you to decide to go forward and say to yourself “Okay, we need to do this NOW because I can’t deal with X anymore.”?

    Also, What were your biggest struggles when it came to finding the right house/realtor? Was their anything in particular that your agent did well or lacked?

    If someone created a set of services that solved the disconnect between realtors and investors, what are some things you would absolutely have to see in them? What do you think people really want to see in a service like that?

    Thank you in advance for any replies! As I mentioned earlier, I am in the process of crafting a specific service to help agents better serve this community so all of the replies will be of significant value! 

I think if you are a Realtor serving investors you have to be able to talk in terms of returns. Even before I was a Realtor I knew enough to run the numbers on a property to what would be a good investment or not. I bring houses to my clients that I would purchase myself and can explain why it would make a good investment.  Maybe you can make a spreadsheet and tailor it to specific investment properties to hand to your clients when you go look at properties. I think once you build that trust in a client relationship you should just be able to send the sheet over and they can make an informed decision if it suits their investment needs right off the bat.
