Real Estate is the Key

Financial Freedom (an ongoing series)

Leveraging Your Best Position

Real estate is the key to financial freedom and REALTORS® are in the best position to make wise real estate investments.

REALTORS® look at the market daily, and anything a REALTOR® buys (and sells) can bring an immediate return in the form of a commission.

I have seen the posts that indicate a real estate professional should never represent themselves in the purchase or sale of their real estate.

My experience is that often it is a good idea to handle the acquisition and disposition of your assets yourself. In some cases, it may be necessary to hire another broker, there are no absolutes. Also, check with your broker if you are an agent about your broker's policy when agents sell their own properties.

Real Estate is your product. You believe in it and that is one of the reasons you help others buy it, you will be even more excited about real estate if you own a few good pieces of investment property. If you can't do it on your own, do it with a friend or family member, but do it. We will discuss ways to own with others in a future post.
