Expected Air Date: 05/07/18
Good morning everyone. As you know I’m a firm believer in the necessity of real estate agents. They provide great value not only in getting our properties sold, but also correct pricing and quite often they are able to provide direction with regard to style and remodeling decisions. A good realtor knows not only the market conditions in the territory you’ve chosen but also knows the subtle differences from street to street that only someone with extensive local knowledge can give you. Can you do this business without a Realtor? Probably, but why would you want to? There are inherent risks in this business and your realtor play a huge role in mitigating that risk. A good realtor will make sure you know your ARV before you buy, will help you set the right price when you are ready to sell, and will take care of the marketing strategy that will get your house sold.
I was fortunate early in my career to meet a realtor who has the right stuff. John Durham showed me a strategy for pricing and selling a house. He introduced me to the technologies that were state of the art at the time and over the past 12 years or so of our friendship has stayed on top of all the newest truly useful developments. I’ve gotten John involved in fixing and flipping and he’s probably done a couple hundred or more houses of his own. John is now an operating partner with Keller Williams and he and his team sell several hundred houses every year here in the metro Atlanta market. John will be joining us after the break and we are going to talk about the market, where it’s been, where it’s going, and what investors should be working on right now.
