Charlotte, NC, May 24, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Get Real, the Real Estate Investing Show for the Rest of Us spoke with Mike Knight about using a realtor as a member of your real estate investing team. Real estate investors have long been the lone wolves of the industry preferring to work on their own. Tightening markets could be the catalyst to push many real estate investors over the edge to seek out competent assistance from a well qualified Realtor.
Mr. Knight is an experienced real estate investor and Realtor who has chosen to focus on a very specific niche portion of the market, real estate investors. He works exclusively with real estate investors many of whom are from outside of his local area, Charlotte, NC. Mike explained why the right Realtor can help energize your real estate investing career. Realtors have access to the MLS as Mr. Knight explained. The good ones are also privy to what is going on in the local markets and neighborhoods. Real estate investors need to be ahead of the curve and get into “hot” neighborhoods prior to the rest of the general public, Mike shared.
According to Knight not all Realtors are created equal. Just like all professionals Realtors have varying niches they support. Some Realtors provide services to residential buyers and others to sellers. He recommends finding an agent that instead exclusively serves the real estate investing community in your local market. Knight adds that these agents not only have access to homes available as investment properties but often times have a pre-qualified team of professionals available to service the real estate investors such as property management, construction contractors, etc.
