Local Agent Receives Training to Effectively Counsel Real Estate Investors, Provide Wealth-Building Strategies

Rhonda Schoolfield of Representing Buyers Only Inc. Earns Prestigious Certified Investor Agent Specialist (CIAS) Designation

05/22/12 - Rhonda Schoolfield of Representing Buyers Only Inc. has earned the prestigious Certified Investor Agent Specialist" (CIAS) Designation, having completed extensive training to understand the different real estate investor types, and the investment opportunities, financing options and calculations needed to provide solutions for each. The five real estate investor types include: First-Time Investors, Move-Up Investors, Portfolio Investors, Performance Investors, and Rehab and Resell Investors.

"For decades, investing in real estate has proven to be a consistent and stable way for individuals to build wealth," Schoolfield said. "Real estate investment supports a number of industries, including construction, retail and professional services, and is a strong way to energize and increase investment in our local economy."

Over the past 12 months, investment and second-home properties comprised more than $300 billion in sales, representing approximately 27 percent of all residential real estate transactions. In addition, in market conditions affected by mortgage industry challenges, 48 percent of investors made all-cash purchases.

"As markets face the challenges of distressed properties and a difficult economy, real estate investors have the opportunity to find productive deals while helping communities stabilize," Schoolfield said. "Investors provide much needed liquidity to the market, decrease vacancy rates, improve neighborhoods, and present solutions for homeowners who need to sell."

With the CIAS Designation training, Schoolfield helps her Buyer/Clients build wealth through real estate investment, and homeowners facing foreclosure find potential buyers for their properties.
