It’s important to work with a trusted resource
Working with a local pro investor is important because it can be difficult to find the right kind of help. Not all advisors are created equal, and many people don’t know where to look for trustworthy resources.
Your goal should be to find someone who will help you achieve your goals by providing sound guidance and expertise in the areas that matter most to you–not just someone who offers investment advice but also makes recommendations about other financial products such as life insurance or annuities.
Extensive experience in facilitating co-buying and rent-to-own arrangements
When you’re working with a local pro investor, you can expect that they will have extensive experience in facilitating co-buying and rent-to-own arrangements. This means that they understand the unique needs of buyers and sellers in Richmond. They are committed to helping you achieve your real estate goals, even if this means being creative in order to solve problems in a particular transaction or establishing clear expectations and agreements up front so that everyone knows what’s expected of them at all times.
Guide you through the process from start to finish
If you are thinking about getting started in real estate, it’s important to know the basics of how a local pro investor can help guide you through the process from start to finish. Here are some things that you should be aware of:
- The process will be structured in such a way as to ensure that all parties involved are protected and taken care of. This means that every step of your transaction will be documented in writing so there is no room for confusion or error later on down the line.
- There are several steps involved before any money changes hands:
- Identify properties with potential value; 2) Determine if those properties would make good rentals; 3) Find out what it would take financially (time & effort) vs reward potential return on investment; 4) If everything checks out favorably then proceed with buying/renting property!
Understand the unique needs of buyers and sellers in Richmond
There are many reasons that a seller may want to sell their home, and it’s important for us to understand these reasons. If a seller is motivated by the need for money, we can help them determine if their home is worth what they think it is. If they’re looking for an easier lifestyle or more time with family members, we can show them how selling their current home might make sense.
We also have extensive experience helping buyers find properties in Richmond that meet their needs and expectations–even if those needs aren’t always obvious at first glance! We know how important it is for buyers’ homes to feel like “home” right away so they can relax during the buying process and enjoy life in Richmond after closing on their new home.
Committed to helping you achieve your real estate goals
When you work with a local pro investor, they can help you find the right property and negotiate the right price. They can also close the deal for you by making sure all of your paperwork is in order before closing day. Finally, many investors are able to help their clients get financing–a huge benefit over working with other types of real estate agents who don’t have access to lenders or who simply don’t want to spend time helping clients secure it themselves (which can be extremely difficult).
Be creative in order to solve problems in a particular transactions
The most important thing you can do is be creative in order to solve problems in a particular transactions. Find a solution that works for both parties, and one that is better than the alternatives (such as no deal at all).
If you can’t find an immediate solution, ask yourself if there are ways to get creative with your thinking. Are there other assets or liabilities that could be used as leverage? Can we offer more money up front? What about adding more assets or cutting down on expenses?
Understand the needs and motivations of both parties
To help you get the most out of your relationship with a local pro investor, it’s important to understand the needs and motivations of both parties. This means that you should develop solutions that work for both parties. It also means having a written agreement in place can help prevent misunderstandings down the road when there are disagreements about what was agreed upon or how much money was invested.
Develop better solutions that work
You can develop better solutions that work for everyone involved.
A written agreement in place can help prevent misunderstandings and ensure everyone understands the needs and motivations of both parties. Establish clear expectations, agreements, responsibilities, specifications, deliverables and timelines so you know what’s expected from each side as well as when certain tasks must be completed or milestones met.

Establish clear expectations and agreements
If you are working with a local pro investor, it’s important to establish clear expectations and agreements. The best way to avoid misunderstandings is by having a written agreement.
- A written agreement should include:
- The type of property or properties being purchased (i.e., apartment buildings, single family homes, land)
- The purchase price for each property
- A timeline for when payments are due (i.e., monthly) and when they should be paid by (i.e., June 1st)
- What happens if one party doesn’t make their payment on time or at all
Written agreements can help prevent misunderstandings
A written agreement is a legal document, and it’s important for both parties to understand what the contract means. A written agreement can help prevent misunderstandings by clearly stating what each party has agreed to do, how much money they will be paid, how long the project will take and other important details.
A written agreement should include:
- The scope of work (what needs to be done)
- How much money each party will receive at different milestones in the project timeline (i.e., when you deliver an outline of your idea)
- An estimate of how long it will take you or your team members to complete certain tasks
