Buying Agents: Seperate yourself from others when working with investors

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Own America (Greg even discontinued my email drip campaign to him :( , but I still like what his company provides to agents )

 

Many agents claim they work with investors, but if I asked 10 agents what separates you from your peers when working with investors, I would say 9 out of 10 would not have a response or would come up with a generic answer ("I provide great customer service"). 

I had the opportunity to invite Own America to the AREAA National Conference, and Greg Rand wowed the crowd with the tools and content a regular buying agent can use when trying to work with investors.

Can't figure out cap rate? ROI? Appreciation figures for a zip code? Migration trends? - Own America provides very user friendly tools for a regular agent to look like a super star to investors. They allow you to print the content and make it in to a report for your investor, as well as a section for your investor to learn on their own about investing (and yes, you retain the client). 

I highly suggest those agents who want an edge on their competition to check out www.ownamerica.com . This is a tool you definitely want to invest in, to attract more buyers and stand out from the rest.

Joseph, good recommendation.  Yes most agents claim they represent investors, but fail to realize the agents who historically worked with investors are commercial agents and not residential.  If you can not figure CAP rates, ROI you need to stick with residential type clients only and not investors.

If you don't know the numbers when you make the call, then you aren't really an investors agent.
