Why Real Estate Agents Make the Best Investors

If you’re a real estate agent, you already have the tools you need to become an investor. Without a 401(k) or retirement plan, you’ll need a means to make money for your retirement years.

Today, I’ll be talking about why real estate agents make the best investors.

As a real estate agent, it’s important that you become an investor in some way, shape, or form. Now, becoming a real estate investor doesn’t mean you have to replicate exactly what we do—fixing and flipping over 100 properties a year and having over 300 rental units.

To me, it is important that you invest in real estate because we don’t have the traditional 401(k) or any sort of typical retirement plan that most people would. With that in mind, you should build up some sort of retirement portfolio, and real estate investing is the best way to do it.

As an agent, you can easily transition to becoming an investor. Think about it: you’re already prospecting to get face-to-face seller appointments; you already know the prices of properties and how to value them; you’ve been trained on how to use CMAs; and you’ve probably already found great deals for buyers to benefit from. You also already have the sales skills.

The toughest thing is learning the sales skills that are necessary to get the face-to-face appointments, and then to convert that potential deal into money. With your real estate experience, however, you already have that training.

Ultimately, you already have the tools you need, and you need that retirement income. In order to learn how to become a real estate investor, the best way would be to join the only brokerage in Massachusetts that focuses on investing. The Cameron Real Estate Group is the biggest fix-and-flip investor in the state, and we provide investment training to our agents each and every week.

Now, not every agent on our team wants to be an investor. Not everyone wants to buy multi-family properties or earn passive income or fix and flip houses. But we do have all the training and support set up in order for you to learn how to do it.

At the end of the day, I want to invest in some real estate for my long-term financial plan.
