The Tampa Institute announced today that it will be hosting a number of CIAS events in tampa through the remainder of 2012. “Today's residential real estate market is unlike any I’ve ever seen, with historically low interest rates and incredibly affordable prices,” said Warren Gold of Tampa, florida.
By earning their Certified Investor Agent Specialist® (CIAS) Designation, local real estate professionals acquire a specific understanding of the needs of today’s real estate investor. Through comprehensive training and experience, CIAS-designated agents are able to provide property analysis for a variety of investors, from First-Time Investors to investors looking to build on their existing portfolios.
“Tampa agents earning the CIAS designation are in the best position to serve the Five Investor Types: the First-Time Investor, Move-Up Investor, Portfolio Investor, Performance Investor, and Rehab and Resell Investor,” said Gold.
Many investors in Tampa and across the nation are already taking advantage of what some have been calling the “investor wave”. “Currently more than one in four real estate transactions nationwide is an investment deal. The opportunity today to build wealth through real estate is unparalleled,” added Gold. “We are passionate about teaching agents how they can become an indispensable resource for investors nationwide.”
The seminar educates and trains real estate professionals and small business owners to find opportunities in chaos - either by providing solutions to the foreclosure crisis or empowering entrepreneurs with strategies to embrace their companies' full potential. The company produces more than 300 educational events each year through various divisions, including the Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation (cdpe.com), the Certified Investor Agent Specialist® (CIAS) designation (cias.com), LEAD Experience™, and its annual Breakthrough Conference (charfenbreakthrough.com). The CDPE designation is the fastest growing independent designation in real estate industry history, with more than 40,000 agents trained since 2008. In 2011, the seminar ranked No. 21 on the Inc. 500 List of America's Fastest-Growing private companies.
