This would probably be an unpopular post.
For several months I searched and tested people who introduced themselves as entrepreneurs or realtors for Israelis in real estate transactions in the United States.
Among them I found a special kind of people living in the country (completely) never lived (really did not live) in the area where they supposedly work. They have "connections" with brokers, realtors, management companies and renovators, etc. and take responsibility for other people's money.
I have found those who have more knowledge and also those who, as someone who has not sold anything to anyone there, can teach you.
I am not claiming that these people are aware of the degree of risk they are endangering others' money, but I think they should think about it. And what I mean here is to shake them up a bit.
1. The first property I bought was with the help of someone who lives in the city itself, he offered me a property that is not considered the best area in the various sites. But since he lives there he knew to tell me that the area was going to be the next thing. He had no data but he knew! Later, a large art school was built not far away and the area burst. The man is a childhood acquaintance of a friend of mine for many years so I knew I could accept his words. And he was right! Today the area is on fire!
Could anyone sitting in front of his computer in the Holy Land have known this?
2. In a certain city Amazon was about to set up large warehouses, it did not know that Basilu could be found. People who live there have such knowledge.
And these are really notable examples. There is also a lot of other information that you can only know if you really live there and are interested in real estate there.
I came to write the above because I have now met someone who sits with slippers at the computer in the country and without a clue I started in a place and area that markets "good properties" to people.
Gentlemen, it's money from people you have no idea what it takes to create it. So please risk your money only.
