Unless paying full cash for a property we suggest you get pre-qualified before starting your search. This is especially true when financing investment property since investment loans can be more difficult to obtain.

We know the top lenders in the Valley offering you a wide range of financing options backed by professionals that know how to get the job done.
An experienced investment agent offers a lot more than access to houses and a chauffeur to show you around. We protect your interests, bring a wealth of local knowledge to the table and know how to negotiate and close an investment transaction in even the most trying of circumstances. Working with an UrbBurb professional should be your first move when buying a residential or small commercial property in the Valley. Here’s why:
Representation: Most properties listed on the market today have sellers with professional representation on their side. For the Seller each step of the transaction is monitored by a listing agent backed by an experienced listings broker. Who is representing your best interests? By negotiating directly with the seller’s agent you are putting yourself at a severe disadvantage since that agent is legally bound to disclose everything to their client – the seller. You wouldn’t go into a courtroom without a lawyer, so why go, without representation, into one of the biggest financial decision of your life?
Information: The best way to determine the correct price of the home is to analyze in detail the prices for which similar homes with comparable lot locations, upgrades and other investment relevant factors sold for. Online real estate search sites offer resources for finding listings with only basic data. They do not offer the level of onsite and real-time home sales data that can be accessed by a Realtor through the local Multiple Listing Service. We maintain one of the Valley’s best research teams meaning that you go into every investment negotiation armed with the most current and detailed market and property information available.
Experience: The information gained from working with so many investment clients throughout our careers is invaluable when it comes to helping you pick the best property, in the best location with the greatest opportunity for cash-flow and equity gain. We know the architectures, the communities and the pros and cons that define the many submarkets in the Valley. All this is backed by our legendary negotiation skills. An investment is a big thing – do it right with our guidance.
