Whatever you do, find an agent who is experienced with investors. A lot of agents say they work with investors but many really don't how to and don't know the ins-and-outs investment properties. Also, take anything you've seen about investing on-line or from infomercials and throw it into the trash.

Good luck!

I'd be happy to help. Im both the Broker and owner of Home Central Realty. I've done multi family properties before and I have to solve problems for my 30 agents when they run into problems, so my strength is overcoming any issue that may arise. There are so many potential issues with any property it is impossible to even predict what may happen, but I am able to solve most of them! Let me know what you are looking to do and I will offer assistance. Per the previous answer, lending is the biggest challenge, but each property is unique with its own circumstances so there is no one size fits all for anything.

Before choosing an agent, ask them a lot of questions and research them. For a multifamily investment, is it a 2-4 multifamily housing or 5 or more? Are you going to be an owner occupant in one of them? Financing multifamily units are much different, so have you already spoken to a lender on the requirements and does the agent you want to work with know about capitalization rate, current rents in the areas, occupancy rates in various complexes and much much more. I've had some buyers that wanted multifamily housing, but after researching and finding out how long they wanted to keep the properties, liquidation ect, they ultimately decided to purchase a few single family housing units. It is a big investment, so explore all your options for what your end goals are. On the other side, there are buyers who are going to be owner occupants and if you can finance for as little as 3.5% down instead of the 20% for investors, well, that worked better for them. Lots to consider.
