A hack for first-time home buyers

A hack for first-time home buyers

Working with any of the tens of thousands of first-time home buyers in today's market? You'll find these clients really want to buy, but they seem too priced out of the market to even jump in.  🙅🏻‍♀️ Let's bust this myth: First-time home buyers CAN purchase during a market downturn.  The solution?  House hacking 🏠 This is a key strategy we teach within the Investor Agent Bootcamp. Two agents are using this strategy as we speak! Here's how it works:  Pitch the idea to your buyer that instead of buying a single-family home, they should purchase a duplex, triplex, or fourplex. Then they should live in one unit for at least one year.  The lender will use rental income to help them qualify for the higher payment, and they might…

5 secrets to SUCCEED with investors

5 secrets to SUCCEED with investors

DON’T do this if you want 7 figures

DON’T do this if you want 7 figures

🚀 2021 was the first year I hit 7 figures from a single business entity - AGENTS INVEST. Prior to Agents Invest, I was close, earning $700k - $800k a year in just one of my businesses. But 7-figs was a big milestone for me.  It's taken a lot of "figuring things out" on my own. So I wanted to share some mistakes I've learned from over the past 13 years:     1️⃣ Spend 24/7 working Most people think that the only way to make extra income is to work MORE. This is absolutely false! You'll only run yourself ragged and become unmotivated to keep working.    2️⃣ Do everything yourself Every agent should at MINIMUM have a transaction coordinator and eventually bring on a full-time admin.
