If you are an investor either seasoned or beginner/green horn, I would definitely recommend that you would connect and work with a realtor. She will guide you and would address your real estate investment concerns. And will help in finding solutions to your real estate investment issues. Why not? Buyers' realtor services are paid by the sellers, or banks/lenders or builders. Take advantage of their skills and market knowledge and expertise. My husband and I were residential real estate investors for 7 years before we became realtors. And we had employed/engaged the services of our realtor in all the houses we bought. I am sure you can find one you would be happy to work with. Buying Real estate comprises one of the huge purchases you make in a lifetime, wouldn't it make sense to trust it to a professional? Most people do! Moreover, real estate purchase entails legal, tax and financial implications/ramifications, you would want someone knowledgeable to be on your side. Good luck!
