What is the difference between a real estate investor and a real estate agent?

In other words, not the traditional way that real estate is transacted.

    real estate investors put their money into real estate properties

    real estate agents sell real estate to buyers, not as owners but as a third party

    A real estate agent finds you a house or property and finds a buyer for you. A real estate investor will find a house or property that they want to buy to rent out or turn around and sell for a profit. Difference, real estate agent has no interest in the property itself, just the seller and buyer…the investor has interest in the property…makes sense?

    Investor = buys and sells real estate for profit
    Agent = professional who helps Sellers sell and Buyers buy real estate, for commission

    Real estate investors come in many varieties. There are different ways to invest in real estate. The investor may be a singular individual or a group of investors that pool their money together.

    One investment may be to purchase fixer-upper homes, quickly remodel them and then sell them at a significant profit, splitting the profits between the investors….or… the profits in doing the same thing again and again.

    Another investment may be to provide high interest loans to people wanting to purchase a home or refinance.

    Another invesment may be to purchase raw land, prepare it for development and then sell it to a developer for a handsome profit.

    There are really so many investment techniques. But the goal is the same. To make money.

    The real estate ‘agent’ is who you see inside the real estate storefront when walking down the street. He/She will represent either a (1) seller of a home, or a (2) buyer of a home, or both. A simple transaction and afterwards, each earns their money through commissions on the sale.

    Some agents can also be the middle man for linking investors to investment opportunities.
