Maximizing Your Real Estate Success with Treu Group Real EstateLisa Treu and Brian Mudd discuss on Treu Real Estate 911 on WJNO how you can win in the South Florida market.  There is always an opportunity in the market if you position yourself correctly. 

Many buyers don't realize that there are 2 primary ways that an agent can represent you - A Single Agent and a Transaction Broker.  So what does that mean?  Simply put, A Single Agent is on your side looking for you.  A Transaction Broker is looking to put the best deal together.  There is a difference in the end result.  Imagine if you were hiring an attorney vs a mediator.  Lisa feels that buyers deserve someone on their side just like sellers do.  The most common misconception is that all agents represent buyers as a single agent and that simply is not

There are times when renting might make sense.  If you are planning on moving away in less than 3 years, renting might be a good option.  Or if retirement is approaching and you are not sure of your long term plans.  Even if you are looking for a new career and relocating is an option.  If this is not you, then you should strongly consider buying in south Florida.   Otherwise you are helping another person become wealthy.
