Arizona Real Estate Broker Offers Niche Service to Help Investors Profit Through Trustee Sales

Arizona Real Estate Broker offers service to help investors profit through trustee sales.

June 10, 2010 - PRLog -- When Jennifer Wehner first entered the Arizona real estate market as an investor agent in 2003, it was to work with both fix & flip investors as well as long-term investors. It was a much different climate than and properties with good  profit margins were relatively easy to find on the MLS. The simple process included inputting certain keywords such as “bank-owned, needs TLC, fix-up, foreclosure etc.” and running daily searches. Jennifer and her team did not focus on a particular area, and would valuate 10-20 properties a day that met this criteria. Needless to say, this tactic no longer works in today’s real estate market. If you were to type in “bank-owned”, you may be valuating 200+ properties a day, and banks today are not always selling below market value. The competition has heated up, therefore tweaking her business model was a necessary move.

Trustee sales have always been a lucrative tool for investors in Arizona seeking fix-n-flip homes, as well as “buy & hold” investors looking for good deals. Navigating through the process however, can be quite challenging. Many companies in the valley offer bidding services, however not all companies are created equal. A lot of companies may keep the prime properties to themselves or exclusive group of investors, others may not research title and ensure you are bidding on a first mortgage, and most do not offer the level of involvement that can be the difference of winning…. or losing. Jennifer saw the opportunity as a Real Estate agent for a niche that would benefit investors, while expanding my her own real estate business.

Jennifer has partnered up with a bidding service, ibidAZ, that offers bidding services for investors in Arizona that entails different levels of involvement. The first level caters to the seasoned investor, and provides daily lists of trustee sales scheduled for the next day, access to daily top picks, title search & lien position verified, and bid proxy at the auction. The second level caters to the more passive or novice investor and includes all of the services of the first level plus inspecting the property, evictions, rehab, and marketing and selling process—with 25% profit share. As a real estate agent, Jennifer would be able to give her investor clients a big edge over the MLS, all the while making sure that resale values are realistic. She would also be able to help market and sell their property, using my intense internet campaign and experience with investment properties.

The opportunity to invest in trustee sales in Arizona will not be here forever. When foreclosures slow down and banks start setting higher bids due to declining inventory—trustee sales will start to become less profitable. In the boom years, purchasing homes under market value was next to impossible, and Jennifer has personally never seen a better time to invest in real estate.

If you are an investor looking to take advantage of this ideal investing climate, please contact Jen Wehner at 480-748-2925 email- or visit my website-
