Foreclosure Real Estate Investors for Beaufort, SC
As a foreclosure sales professional with Exit Island Realty in Beaufort, SC I work with quite a few investors and am contacted frequently by customers wishing to invest in Beaufort, SC real estate. Some have experience while some are truly new. There are some obvious good and bad traits for each of them. However, the majority of both groups are often struggleing to make sense of it all as do a lot of agents. I will talk further on typical investor traits in future blogs.
This market has brought out all types of buyers and investors. Understanding that our time is valuable and is typically abused by a lot of investors I have made a concentrated effort to screen investors that I work with. I ask questions like..
How many properties have you purchased in the last 12 months?
How many properties do you anticipate to purchase in the next 12 months?
What are your real estate investment goals?
How many professional Realtors have you worked with in the past? (Usually stumps them)
How do you plan to fund your investments? Cash or Credit?
Do you typically use a real estate professional to re-sell the investment properties you purchase?
My list goes on but you get the point. Now more than ever we need to educate ourselves and our investors but most importantly we need to decide which investors to work with. I have turned down some investors and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to do so.
Do you qualify your investors like you qualify your home buyers and sellers? I would like to hear some of your criteria that you use to determine if they are a good fit for your business.
Just as clients make the decision to pick us as their Realtor let's make sure we protect our valuable time and make the right decisions in choosing the investors we work with.
