EXIT Realty Corp. International, a real estate franchisor with brokerages across North America, has launched the EXIT Investor Center on the company’s website, www.exitrealty.com/investorcenter. OwnAmerica, the leading provider of investment analysis technology and training to the real estate industry is providing the content for the new portal.
“Training is the first step to helping people realize financial security through real estate investing,” says Tami Bonnell, CEO of EXIT Realty. “We believe in a conservative approach to real estate investing and agree with OwnAmerica’s style of education and analysis for the long term.”
The EXIT Investor Center will feature a 4-hour video education program which is free to the public, and an analysis tool called the Case Study Calculator that allows prospective investors to evaluate a property investment for 30 years.
“We are excited about the new content launch with EXIT Realty. We’ve worked with the company for two years and have certified almost 1,000 EXIT brokers and agents on servicing residential investors,” says Greg Rand, CEO of OwnAmerica, “Today it has become clear that investors are the driving force for the recovery of the housing market. EXIT understands and appreciates that, and wants to do more to help them.”
More than 12 percent of all U.S. households, over 14 million people, reside in single family homes as rentals. Historically, most single family investments were owned by small investors, but now a new class of institutional investors has emerged, acquiring thousands of single family homes to hold as rentals for the long term. “Large institutions who are building national portfolios of homes need a real estate partner with a national footprint,” Bonnell adds, “and that’s us.”
“The institutionalization of the single family housing market is a major trend in this economy,” saysRand, “Estimates indicate that over $100 million will be deployed into the asset class over the next decade. This is a whole new level of real estate expertise that we are developing with our partners.”
