What Is a Real Estate Investor

Posted on: September 28th, 2019 by , No Comments

If you have been doing research on how to sell your home, then chances are you’ve come across the term ‘real estate investor’. So what exactly is a real estate investor? What kind of role do they play in the selling or buying of houses?

What a Real Estate Investor Is

As you may know, an investor is someone who puts forth money in a business venture with the intention of profit. So in the case of a real estate investor, they put money on potentially profitable real estate ventures.

Some of these ventures as outlined by The Balance are:

  • Residential –  Investors in this particular area focus on the purchase, sale, and/or rental of homes and apartments.
  • Commercial – Sale or rental of office buildings.
  • Industrial – Warehouses, manufacturing plants, storage units etc.
  • Retail – Ownership of properties that can accommodate retail shops, restaurants and other businesses.

All this may not sound very interesting. It’s just people putting money into businesses to make more money, right? Well, not quite exactly.

As a homeowner looking to sell your home, this can actually be very relevant to you.

What This Means To You

As a homeowner looking to sell your property you can benefit from selling to an investor.

As explained in previous blog posts, a real estate investor can purchase your home for cash and in a short amount of time.

This is not the case with a real estate agent. With an agent you can expect your home to stay in the market for a while. Furthermore, you will have to split some of the money your house sold for with the agent.

Thinking about selling your home all by yourself? Definitely not recommended. There is tons of paperwork involved in the selling/buying of a home that you may not know about; and there is also all the legal matters that come with the transaction.
