Working with a real estate professional who specializes in Southern California Investment properties and residential real estate will be invaluable to your successful real estate investment acquisition. A professional who has experience in the Southern California Investment property market will understand your needs and desires better and will be current on the availability of income property in your area than a "residential" Southern California real estate agent.  

Your Southern California Investment Property Advisor should have:

  • Extensive experience in the trade of residential income properties

  • Relevant knowledge of the city, county and state rules and regulations concerning rental properties and property transfer

  • Awareness of borrowing guidelines for Investment properties, as well as local lenders who seek Investment property investors

  • Knowledge of typical closing costs of Southern California Investment properties, as well as which title companies and escrow officers are proficient in processing Investment properties

  • A strong sense of market value for properties in different areas.

  • A complete grasp of the Internet and how the real estate industry is changing because of the web.  Prior to spending time with just any real estate agent, check out their web site. 

Spend time with your Southern California Investment Property Advisor prior to searching for properties to learn from them as much as you can about Investment properties (appraisal techniques, market capitalization rates, Investment analyses, city by-laws, etc.)

 Learn how your agent works (how they will send you listings? How often they intend to take you out to visit properties? How quickly will they respond to your calls? etc.). Get a general sense of their work ethic and how well you will be able to work together to acquire Southern California real estate.
