Getting real estate listings is a tricky business, and one which relies on trust. In my opinion, it is one of the worst investments you can make in the short term, unless you also follow other real estate investments that will help you generate an income (investing in property leases can generate more than rental income, though, depending on the business you intend to start).
While investing in real estate provides you with immediate, considerable income, investing in real estate listings may offer more financial rewards, but I believe that investing in real estate listings requires more due diligence and trustworthiness. Sometimes, you’ll lose money when investing in real estate listings, even if you follow the advice of the real estate agent and/or real estate company you’re working with (although this can also happen when investing in an index fund, or another real estate investment, when the value of the real estate market is rising rapidly).
There are numerous real estate investments companies that are now accepting real estate listings. I have invested in real estate listings before, but I don’t believe in them anymore.
With real estate listings, there’s always the danger that you may be the victim of fraud, because the financial information you provide will only be provided by the real estate company. And sometimes, you may lose money because you don’t have the money to pay for the land (or other items) that you receive from the real estate company, as well as from the auction house that sells them. If you’d like to know how to handle these sorts of situations, I recommend reading this post (in Dutch only), which is written by Erik Schuebel, a real estate agent who recently became a member of IAAPA and a real estate investor.
Erik recommends that investors deal with real estate listings companies only when they’re highly qualified (which isn’t the case with most real estate listings companies), and he provides a detailed description of the risks and issues that you should consider when choosing a real estate listings company (which you can read on the IAAPA website).
Maybe you have dealt with real estate listings companies before, and maybe you have become a member of IAAPA. In that case, you can be a member of IAAPA, and I think you’ll find a variety of trustworthy real estate listings companies at IAAPA. For instance, LandLine Realty lists real estate listings for over 700 properties in the Houston area. I really like LandLine’s real estate listings. I had a property listed with LandLine a few years ago, and the listing was highly visible, and it performed very well. LandLine’s real estate listings business is highly professional and reputable.
You’ll have to conduct some specific research in order to get more information about the different real estate listings companies that can be found at IAAPA. Fortunately if you’re reading up about the likes of the IAAPA, it means you have a great grounding on exactly what to look for and perhaps even how to look for it.
If only this task was as easy as trying different platforms out to ultimately find the best mobile casino you can regularly game on.
