#110: Straight From The Streets
On this week’s show Gary chats with his partners Quinton Cordick and Christopher Hummell about their journeys as real estate agents and investors. They’ve had a lot of fun building up SmartHomeChoice to be able to serve thousands of investors build their portfolios, while making the process as stress-free as possible.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
Why comparable listings from months back are basically useless these days because the market is moving so quickly Why some houses are receiving multiple offers and some aren’t Is every house these days appraising at its value Why you shouldn’t worry these days if houses are on the market for 2 weeks Will the 10% month over month growth continue Why it’s harder to predict what a property will close at Why Quinton and Chris are calling agents to check what owners want for a property, before showing it and preparing offers, to not waste their clients’ time Some properties are being listed at a price, but the owner wants double Why an agent that works in the area is way more effective than of market agents It doesn’t matter if we are at the peak of the market, if the numbers make sense Why they respect the client’s comfort level What type of properties are being purchased now Anything in the news is ‘news’, it’s not what’s happening now Where are the opportunities now - Peterborough, further afield?
