Perfect Properties to Invest in.
So you are ready to become a real estate investor and are looking for the perfect property to invest in that will bring about the highest possible success. You may be thinking, “Where can I find the perfect property to invest in?” Here are our top picks for finding perfect properties:‑
Everyone knows a Realtor. Some Realtors are better than others. There can be a huge gap in the level of professionalism, work ethic, and expertise from one Realtor to the next. Be aware that a lot of Realtors are accustomed to working with owner occupant buyers and have little experience or appetite for properties sold AS-IS and in a distressed condition. Be very mindful of a specific Realtor’s clientele before considering working with them, if they spend their day driving around with families in their car looking at beautiful retail homes then they will not be of much use to you in finding investment quality homes. However, do not discount these ‘retail’ Realtors entirely. You should get to know several of them, as they are exactly the person you need to sell or rent your finished product down the road.
The kind of Realtor you want to find to locate investment properties is one that deals only with “INVESTORS”, the African Urbanization. With a presence within the Region and Diaspora, African Urbanization Group has the breadth of experience & network of expertise as a “boutique” online marketing firm, able to offer clients high level of service with a competitive advantage by maximizing on efficiencies through targeted/specialized marketing efforts together with the use of extensive proprietary databases and platforms.
These real estate agents understand the principals of investing and have vast knowledge of on and off market properties. For brand new investors, finding a Realtor like this is usually a good idea as long as you have an abundance of time available to look at lots of properties and make tons of offers. Be prepared to spend some time everyday engaged in this forum for at least a month as newer property listings with more value addition and secondary opportunities are listed before you settle down to strike the final deal. Also be prepared for sellers today to have almost no interest at all in accepting your contract if you are using conventional financing and/or require a longer period of time to close unless your offer is very close to the retail value of the property. In most cases you will only obtain the discount you need if your offer is all cash or you can close in a few weeks or less. Most new investors do not realize the level of competition in the market for high-quality investment homes, the speed at which the truly good ones sell, and the difficulty and time involved in contracting one. Although working with a good investment-based Realtor is a great way to get your feet wet and learn the basics, like evaluating property values and the cost of repairs, if you have the time to invest.
