As a real estate agent. you'll benefit too!
One of the main benefits of working with an investor is the potential for repeat business throughout the course of a year. By working consistently with a successful investor who actively buys and sells properties, you can predict a steady revenue stream based on their level of activity. Although it varies, most real estate agents typically close between 2 to 10 deals per year with investors. A good agent will be able to leverage those deals into even more deals, just by working with the buyers who purchase investment properties.
OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE BOTH SIDES OF COMMISSION
By acting as a dual agent in a transaction, representing both the buyer and seller, you can earn both sides of the commission. For example, let’s say that you as a licensed agent have an REO property listed. Our goal is for the agents we work with to be excited to work with us which is why we’re happy for you if you received both sides of the commission. That merely means you were great at your job!
Representing Both Sides Of A Transaction Allows
You To Make Double Commission!
BECOME A DISTRESSED PROPERTY SPECIALIST
There are a number of properties in the marketplace needing renovations – anything from cosmetic repairs to full-gut rehabs. Often times, you as the agent are the first contact for sellers behind on payments, who need to sell quickly, or don’t have equity in their home. These are exactly the types of opportunities we are looking for. If you or someone in your office have these types of listings, we may be able to quickly purchase the homes with CASH. After a few successful transactions, you can utilize that success to gain more exposure in your market and build your credibility as a distressed property specialist – ultimately, increasing your income opportunity.
ACCESS TO PROPERTY INVENTORY BEFORE LISTED
A successful and active investor will constantly have an inventory of completely renovated properties; and YOU will have access to that inventory BEFORE that property is listed on the MLS. This creates a great opportunity for buyers – especially a first-time homebuyer, as they would have the chance to purchase a newly renovated and fairly priced property. In some cases, your buyers can also have the benefit of giving input on certain features of their home and choosing custom finishes BEFORE renovations are fully complete. By providing this option to your buyer, it completely differentiates you from other agents – therefore, directly impacting your bottom-line!
OPPORTUNITY TO HOST OPEN HOUSES
Newly renovated vacant properties generate a lot of interest from potential buyers – like a neighbor or anyone else looking for properties priced aggressively and in pristine condition. By acting as a seller’s agent, this creates a great opportunity to host open houses for these properties; allowing you to meet many new potential buyers that you can add to your database, and possibly cultivate as buyer clients of your own.
SHORT SALE REFERRALS
Successful investors are excellent marketers and generate a lot of leads – many of which are short sales. In most cases, investors aren’t too interested in working with sellers whose properties are over-leveraged and in short sale situations. The short sale process can be lengthy, so many investors prefer to refer those leads to a specialist rather than work with the sellers themselves. This creates a huge opportunity for you to become a “short sale specialist” – by listing these properties and getting the commission when they sell. As a short sale specialist, you also have the opportunity of working with multiple investors, which provides you with more of an revenue stream ten fold!
FREE TRAINING & JOINT VENTURE POTENTIAL
At Grey West Properties, we pride ourselves on having a strong foundation of real estate knowledge and training. Our core business lies within our systems, education and knowledge of the real estate industry. We did not just buy a CD off the Internet and become a real estate investor overnight. We have spent thousands of dollars to learn how to be successful in this business and do it the right way the first time.
By working with us, you can benefit from our knowledge, gain REAL LIFE investing experience and have an amazing opportunity to learn all the ins-and-outs of the other side of real estate. To us, this is invaluable. If you should decide to take interest in becoming more involved directly with real estate investing, there are a few unique opportunities that can create an additional income stream for you – and you can either take a hands on or hands off approach. Let us know if you’re interested in a possible joint venture opportunity, and we can discuss it in great detail.
Frequently Asked Questions
by REAL ESTATE AGENTS
WILL I BE REQUIRED TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME DRIVING AROUND SHOWING YOU PROPERTIES TO BUY?
No, not at all! We already know what we’re looking for, and our criteria typically stay the same. While we may need you to let us inside a property once in a while, we wouldn’t ask you to spend your time on wild goose chases.
IS IT WORTH MY TIME TO WORK WITH AN INVESTOR?
Yes! You can automate most of the process so you’re not wasting your time on working on tedious tasks. By working with an investor, you create a very lucrative source of income as well. In a partnership with us, you can earn multiple commissions by representing us as both the buyers and sellers agents.
WHAT KINDS OF OFFERS DO INVESTORS USUALLY MAKE?
Our offers are in cash. They are below retail, but they are also highly valuable because they are cash offers. Some of our offers do get rejected; but, unlike traditional clients who may buy or sell a home once every five years, we make multiple transactions annually.
HOW CAN I WORK WITH GREY WEST PROPERTIES?
You have the opportunity to become what we call a “triple agent.” When working with Grey West Properties, you can act as the buyers agent, the listing agent and the referral agent. In other words, you may be able to earn triple commission on a single deal. Secondly, we will actively send you leads on listings and give you the right to generate more leads by marketing our homes once the renovations are complete. We can also send buyers to you.
WHAT TYPES OF PROPERTIES DO YOU PURCHASE FROM SELLERS?
We purchase homes in pre-foreclosure, over-leveraged, condemned, liens or health department violations, not maintained, fire damaged, estate sales, stagnant listings, even about to fall down homes - we can buy it!
