I found this entry on Seattle Eric’s blog, and it really shows how and why buyer’s need their own representation in real estate. He mentions the importance of having a plan with an exit strategy, and he is absolutely right. You not only need an exit strategy, but you also need to know the rate of return you wish to earn over the life of the investment. This needs to be known before you step into the market.
Before a buyer invests in real estate, they should have realistic goals and expectations spelled out in a well thought-out plan, this includes having an exit strategy. It is also important to understand that money is made when you buy real estate right, and not when you buy and sell wrong.
