The housing market is heating up as homebuyer season comes back in full swing. For the past few months, most real estate investors have assumed that high interest rates and low inventory would stop first-time homebuyers from making offers on houses. But, most of us assumed wrong. At the start of this year, demand started picking back up, causing investors to pivot to get offers in quickly. So, if you’ve been waiting to buy your first or next deal, now may be the perfect time to start analyzing properties, sending in offers, and getting your property portfolio started. But you can’t do it without an elite agent!
We brought in three of the nation’s top agents to tell us what’s happening in their markets, what types of deals they’re doing, and how you can make the most off your next purchase. We first welcome back Dahlia Khalaf from ASN Realty in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She’s recently helped a client get into a “double dip deal” that resulted in tens of thousands in profit on a deal that almost any beginner investor could do. But they had to get creative to find it! Next, we bring back Rob Chevez from Washington, D.C., who’s worked out an interestingly debt-ridden real estate deal to help his investor client pull in some SERIOUS cash flow from short-term renting.
And lastly, who could forget about our own David Greene? He’s California’s favorite real estate agent, and his team has been using the house hacking strategy to help first-time homebuyers subsidize a SIGNIFICANT portion of their mortgage. Even better? This deal required no money down and allowed his clients to lock in a low mortgage rate and a low cost of living while in one of America’s most expensive cities, San Diego.
