Beware of These Common Investor Pitfalls
It’s easy to make mistakes when you’re investing in a market that you don’t know well. It’s why we’re here. We can help you earn more and spend less by avoiding some of the most common mistakes that investors make.
Contact us if you’re thinking about buying a rental property in Venice Island, Pelican Pointe, or Stoneybrook
Overpaying for a Property
Take a good look at the market, and make sure you’re not paying too much for a Venice investment property. We can help you analyze what similar homes are going for and talk to you about what you can expect to earn in rent so you don’t buy outside of a wise investment range.
Over-leveraging Your Purchase
Don’t be too desperate to close on the deal you want. Leveraging a purchase can work in your favor when it’s done right, but if you take out more of a loan than you can afford, it’s going to take some time before you can really make any money on your investment.
Poor Property Management
Hiring a professional property manager is a great way to earn more on your investment, but the wrong property manager will only cost you money and cause you stress. Be smart when you’re picking your management partner.
Our Real Estate Partners
In Florida, an applicant only has to study for 60 hours and pass a 100 question exam to qualify as a real estate agent. Literally one day after passing the Florida Real Estate exam, an agent is licensed to sell a 1-bedroom condo, a million-dollar mansion or even a retail shopping center. A real estate license is no indicator of an agent’s skill or expertise.
Who do you want to trust your investment strategy with? We maintain relationships with exceptional local agents, all equipped with the knowledge, experience and skill set required to perform in the real estate investment market.
Our partnering agents offer value to buyers and sellers above that of a realtor involved in the general sales market. To attain ‘Preferred Real Estate Agent’ status at Gulf Coast Property Management, agents need to demonstrate through knowledge, qualifications and real-life experiences, that they understand the long goals of the real estate investor. The agents are also active in the real estate investment community and members of professional organizations such as NARPM and IREM.
