I agree with Michael and his points. Just steer your clients away from "hot properties" as it will be discouraging to your client once he/she will not be accepted it, time after time.

Best of luck.

This is a common problem for buyers across the country. About the most realistic advice is to avoid properties with investor competition. You'll typically find those in areas with few or no rentals.

Otherwise, professional investors have huge advantages in experience, time, and financial strength over average buyers.

Work with a Realtor and listen to them.

If it is good for an investor it should be better for the owner occupant.

There are investors in every market.

That makes sense steer you clients to properties no one wants???

Best way to compete is to put your best foot forward, eventually you will get the property you want.
