Most Searched Real Estate Questions

Google, Instagram, Youtube, Reddit... People look all over the place for answers, so we answered all the internets most burning real estate questions all on one place!

Real estate agents help people find homes and sell their homes. They do this by doing things like:

-Helping potential buyers learn about the home buying process, help buyers identify which properties are right for them, take buyers on showings, perform comparable property analysis on to make price recommendations, create and submit offers as well as negotiate on buyers behalf. 

 

-Helping potential sellers figure out what they need to do to prepare their home for sale, including minor renovations, repainting, staging or decluttering. They will make recommendations on price, timing and selling strategy. They will create a marketing plan including providing photos, video, social media, landing page and other marketing collateral. They will list the property on local MLS and other online portals. Once listed, they will review offers and negotiate on sellers behalf. Finally the will facilitate the closing of the sale. 

What type of real estate is best to invest in depends on the type of investment strategy you want to use.

 

The types of real estate that are best for cashflow investing are multi-unit residential and mixed-use properties. These include simple residential duplexes all the way to commercial ground level units with residential units above them.

 

The types of real estate that are best for creating additional equity (BRRRR Method) are residential property conversions. These include laneway development, duplexes, triplexes and quadplexes.

 

The types of real estate that are best for fix-and-flip investments are single family residential properties that require only cosmetic upgrades or simple structural changes. Outdated condo units in buildings with good reputations are also a great option. 

 

 

Real estate will crash when these two things happen in parallel: The cost of borrowing (interest rates) rise beyond what the majority of those with mortgages can afford on a monthly basis, plus the demand for properties from buyers and/or renters falls well below the number of sellers who must sell.

 

If the cost of borrowing rise but there is demand, then sellers can sell or rent their unit at a regular market value, no crash. 

 

If demand to buy or rent drops but sellers can afford their borrowing costs, then they do not have to sell and property values will remain the same, no crash.
