The success of your property investment is dependent on your relationships; in particular, the one with the estate agent in your desired purchasing area.
The key to securing property in the right area and at a good price hangs on distinguishing yourself in the property game. Competition among property developers is fierce so it’s important to set yourself apart by creating and working on the relationship you have with the estate agent.
There are often properties that never reach the mainstream market as they are offered out to investors that have these relationships so getting to the top of the estate agents list is hugely beneficial because you could be missing out on your next deal.
Building a good relationship doesn’t happen overnight so you will need to invest some time to personally visit estate agents to introduce yourself and give them an idea of what you are looking for and your budget. Email is not sufficient enough to do this. A face-to face meeting is far more effective.
Regular contact will keep you at the top of the estate agents mind so that when properties matching your criteria crop up, you’ll be the first to know.
Always think beyond the first deal and have a longer term mentality. This will include a personal thank you to the estate agent who helped you to secure your property. You will become respected in the industry quickly which will help you with future investments.
