After securing the funds for your future real estate investment, secure a competent REALTOR. Why a REALTOR? REALTORS subscribe and are bound to rules over & beyond the requirements of ordinary real estate agents.Then interview the REALTOR to see if there is a “good fit” between you and the agent. Good fit means you see eye to eye on the principles you will adhere to. You need a REALTOR to locate and screen potential investments. If you agree, then complete a “Buyer’s Agreement” and let the agent find you several potential investments. Select only one proeprty the first time. Move forward with your investment stragety from this point. What a great time to buy! Positive cash flow from the beginning!
