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

I've had some new agents come to me seeking advice on how I'm always successful with my clients.  And how I get them always coming back to me for more.  I get it.  It can sometimes be a bit rough connecting with investors and building long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.  So today, I'm sharing with you 5 TIPS FOR FINDING SUCCESS WITH INVESTORS. 🚀  Especially with out-of-state investors - knowing what to expect and how to stay on their "good" side.   1️⃣ Build trust with proactive communication An OOS Investor's greatest fear is being taken advantage of.

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. Each additional team…

[JULY NEWS] What’s trending in real estate?

[JULY NEWS] What’s trending in real estate?

Finally, we're starting to see a cooldown on the housing market.  And agents are getting some breathing room. Now that the era of 25+ offers on one property is over, the next question is … what should you be doing?  🤔 Even though the housing market is cooling down on offers, there's still PLENTY of work to do. ⏰ Now is the time to follow up with sellers who had previously unrealistic prices and see if they're willing to sell.  It's also the time to check in with your investor clients and update them on any current market conditions and deals. Remind them the benefits of buying NOW. I believe we'll have a 6-12 month window before the market takes off again.  Have a client in mind?  Reach out to…

Do you own investment properties?

Do you own investment properties?

Did you know that 5% of agents ACTUALLY own investment properties? 🧐 Odd when you think about it.   Agents KNOW the value of real estate and sell it for a living. So why aren't more of them investing? 🤔 Here's what I'm thinking:  They prefer the larger, one-time commission checks. Not the smaller, monthly recurring revenues.  They plan short-term, not long-term.  They're too busy working in their business, they don't work ON their business. The list goes on.  Some don't see the benefits of it, others are not educated enough on it.  But check out the power of investing with ONE deal alone. 👇🏼 6-unit in Tennessee Purchased for $415,000 Private lender funded $385,000 Total out of pocket $30,000 down payment + $30,000 renovations Refinance new value $530,000 New loan…
