Single-Family Rental investors openly acknowledge that they’ve had to figure out the SFR investment market by themselves. The only way to learn is through peer-to-peer training because the industry of residential real estate has never developed the specialization to help people who want to invest in homes, rather than live in them.
For someone wanting to buy and sell Single-Family Rentals in bulk, the process is long and tedious. If they do use a real estate agent, they have to uproot their tenants, list the houses on the MLS and sell each property individually. If they choose to try and sell their portfolio on their own, they have to resort to creating listings on Craig’s List and other local classified sites.
So, why should this matter to a real estate agent? Because the SFR market is blue ocean!
