RealEstateInvestor.com (REI), which provides an online platform where members can learn about the latest in real estate investment properties and resources, is encouraging more investors to join its network in order to take advantage of the many deals that are found on various real estate investing websites.
With a community of now over 30,000 investors, in just two years REI has developed a good pulse on the industry and should be used as a primary asset for all real estate investors. With its growing network of members, REI is also encouraging its members to utilize websites such as LoopNet.com and InvestorLoft.com for exciting real estate prospects. In a number of booming housing markets many of the homebuyers are real estate investors.
Through information obtained from the National Association of Realtors, REI has learned that investors bought one out of every five homes last year. And, many of these investors are buying up deeply discounted foreclosed homes and other distressed properties in locations like Las Vegas, California and Florida.
Websites like LoopNet.com, InvestorLoft.com and SmartZip.com are an ideal outlet for investors looking for their next biggest real estate deal. These websites carry listings for both commercial properties and residential income properties. Users can search these listings by city, price range or investment goal.
If searching by investment goal, one can narrow the search by a property that is likely to generate the most cash in the short term, one with the most equity, or one that will pay for itself the quickest. The results include photos, prices, an aerial map of the neighborhood and other details. Some of the sites require a fee, while others are free.
While REI offers solid products and support for all of its members, it is also an outlet to provide objective news and resources that will best benefit its entire network, even if those resources are outside of REI.
"We believe in being an independent voice that allows our 30,000 members to make the best decisions for them, while we work on providing the most objective and current information on a daily basis. Being objective is mandatory and in doing so, we will offer guidance and advice when our members ask so that ultimately they will best be able to determine if a property they are interested in is really worth the investment," said Colin Egbert, CEO of REI.
