Given the current overall economic environment it's not surprising that people are cautious with their money. However, there are plenty of great real estate opportunities that the smart investor is capitalizing on. If you understand the sub-market, you easily identify unique opportunities that are real "steals". Most of the time people are untrustiing of these opportunities or allow their own perception to get in the way of seeing these opportunities. I think most people believe they have a good grasp of real estate since it's such a common commodity and people believe what they want to believe. This undermines most peoples ability to truly see these opportunities. You hire a CPA to get the most for your taxes, you hire a mechanic to repair your car but most think they can 'do' real estate. Most are wrong. Find an agent who has a track record and mentality that fit's your goals and let that person handle guide your search. It could save thousands today and make you tens times that down the road. M.
