Whether you are a commercial broker, wholesaler, realtor, property manager, etc., there are ample benefits to working with residential real estate investors. So how do you find them? This is a niche, albeit enormous niche, market with very targeted networking opportunities. We put together this list of the best outreach opportunities from our personal experience in the industry:
Real Estate Investors Associations (REIAs)
- REIAs can be a goldmine for resources, information and networking. To find a local REIA visit the National Real Estate Investors Association or MeetUp.com.
- There are ample annual industry events that are great for meeting investors. WolfNet.com has a solid list of upcoming events in 2018.
- Network with investors while they are looking to find their next properties. Auction.com is a good starting point to find local auctions.
Online Search Engines
- When looking for real estate investors, sites such as Zillow, Trulia, and Craigslist are your friends.
