Choosing the Level of Help You Needto Buy Rental Properties
Listening to your situation is critical for us in developing an investment strategy to help you buy high return, income producing rental properties. The most successful investment strategies also leverage the knowledge of how other investors sell, how property valuation is set, the criteria that lenders use to fund rental properties, the use of strategically written contracts, the collection of accurate income and expense data, and how to use the outcomes of property inspections to the buyer's advantage- only to name a few. Buying a multi-unit, income producing property, is very different than buying a home to live in, and has an elevated level of due diligence on the part of the investors. To help you find a knowledgeable agent to help you buy rental properties, we have written a short interview guide with a six questions and answers to help you in your interviewing process- or, to make it even easier, just call Max at 412-552-9811.
Below you will find an example of our `a la carte menu showing the thirty activities that must be completed when investing in income producing rental properties. Our five options allow you to have us do all of the work (Traditional Full Service Investor Buyer Representation), some of the work (Buy-it-Myself Investor Listing Service), create your own customized bundle of services (My Customized Bundle of Investor Buyer Services), use our Consulting and Coaching service (line 34) when you are looking for honest answers and guidance throughout the buying process, or select or REIA Report: Financial Performance Analysis (line 35) option as support of properties investment value and assuring that lenders will fund the investment. Don't worry- you can't make a mistake, because we're here to help, and, no matter which option you choose, you can always shift between service options- without any penalty or additional cost to you.
How It Works
In column A, we have listed all the real estate activities that need to be completed to buy income producing properties. Although these may not be all we do, it is all we get paid for. Depending on your situation or need, you can select one of our pre-bundled services in columns B or C, create your own customized bundle of services in column D, select our Consulting and Coaching Service on line 35, or have us complete a REIA Report: Financial Performance Analysis for your property. You will see our estimated cost to complete each of those services on lines 31-35. Lean how each of these four service lines can save you thousands!
Because our Commission FREE Services are based on you paying a fair hourly fee for those items you select, and we complete for you, you can enter and exit the process, and add or remove activities at any time without penalty. Below we provide a couple scenarios of situations that investor buyers might find themselves at some point in the selling process and how they might use our `a la carte menu of services to help them close the deal.
Scenario 1: You think you found a property... You have been looking for a while now and found your dream home. As a serious buyer, you are looking for an agent to represent you in helping you buy your new home, from where YOU are to close. Using our `a la carte menu, you might select our Traditional Full-Service Buyer Representation, but enter the process on line 12- which would save you an additional $1,000 had you started the service from the beginning.
Scenario 2: Managing Inspections. Because of previous experience and knowledge, this time you decided to buy your home on your own- without any help. However, yourself, and your lender, require certain inspections to be done by a qualified inspector to protect you and reduce lender risk. You could use some help to find a highly qualified inspection that meets all state requirements, schedule the inspection, review the inspection report when completed, and renegotiate the current contact based on those findings. In this situation, you could hire us to complete just those activities for you, entering the process on line 19 and exiting the process on line 21 once all the negotiations were completed.
