A survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors in February reported that 70% of homebuyers canvassed on the issue of one-stop-shopping said they were in favor of it. That is, they wanted their realty company to have mortgage and title resources available in-house for their use. In addition, 8.3 out of 10 respondents who used one-stop-shopping, said they owed their most recent transaction’s success to it. I believe these same survey respondents would have added the additional resource of property management to the shopping list, if they’d been investors, since most investors, upon buying a property
wonder, “How much can we get if we rent this property?”

Buyers should want to purchase investment properties through a real estate brokerage which both sells and manages rentals. On the one hand, they’ll know instantly from a professional what income they may derive. On the other hand, they’ll profit from the marketing services ordinarily performed on behalf of sellers, i.e. inclusion in the MLS system and in the firm’s regular advertising. Most importantly, when the investor is ready to sell, a licensed broker is ready and available.

For all investors out there, I strongly suggest you look for one-stop-shopping that caters to your rental
needs. We’ll gladly take your call.
