Real Estate Investing: Build Wealth Representing Investors and Becoming One Yourself
As a real estate professional, you invest a lot of time, effort, and resources in building client-for-life relationships with home buyers. But what happens when your home-buyer client is ready to become a real estate investor? Do you have the skills, knowledge base, and contacts to work with real estate investors? Or, do you refer your client to another agent or firm and wave goodbye to the stream of future business? Real Estate Investing: Working with Investors, Becoming an Investor covers the fundamentals of real estate investment that practitioners need to know to expand their business services. The one-day course looks at how practitioners can adapt core real estate skills and learn new skills to serve clients who want to invest in single family homes, condos, townhomes, and small multifamily properties. You will learn how to work with investors as they goal set, plan, evaluate, and acquire properties as well as manage them. You will also learn how to 'walk the talk' and become a real estate investor yourself.
Students will examine the characteristics of these home buying generations and evaluate their expectations (expectations of the agent and the transaction) as well as communication preferences. As a turnkey resource, this course offers generation-specific marketing tools, networking tips, scripts, and counseling strategies to help real estate professionals formalize their agency relationships.
