“Houston Real Estate Investors Dream Team” reached #1 on Amazon.com’s Best Seller List in the Real Estate, Buying and Selling Homes and Real Estate Investments categories on Tuesday, June 16, 2015.
The book was compiled from interviews and the experiences of top real estate investing consultants in the Houston, Texas area on the specific and powerful topic of creating a real estate investment business. Each contributing author has spent years helping new and seasoned real estate investors, not just with practical advice on how to have a real estate investing business, but providing actual services so that investors can use their time and money in more practical ways.
David Lee Durr is a real estate agent in Houston who specializes in working with real estate investors as an expert and a mentor.
Durr was an investor first and he got his realtor license in order to supplement his own investing. He points out that most realtor agents pursue retails sales which pay a higher commission so they can pay their bills at the end of the month.
Since he has built up a portfolio of rental properties which provide monthly income, Durr is not dependent on making quick sales to pay his bills. This allows him to focus on pursuing some real estate sales which can be more difficult, more time consuming and which may not be as lucrative in commission payout.
Durr also mentors real estate investors who want to build up a real estate portfolio for their long-term goals. In addition to educating them on the intricacies of real estate investing, he helps them find properties to consider purchasing for their portfolio. He believes in the buy-and-hold strategy for building passive streams of income.
Durr shares, “I sit down, examine their resources and give my advice on what would be a good path for meeting their goals. I help them set reasonable expectations. I want them to know whatever goals they have and whatever passions they have in life, we can use real estate as a tool to fund that life.
It’s not necessarily about money and it’s not about real estate per se. But real estate is an effective tool to free up their time if they’re doing the buy and hold strategy. Whereas if you’re flipping or wholesaling to create income, then you’re trading your time for that income, so it’s definitely a job.
Use real estate as a tool to build passive streams of income so you can have the time to pursue whatever your passion is in life.”
Durr shares some good strategies which will help investors who are looking to build a portfolio that helps them achieve their goals.
