I received an email today from a local real estate agent who has many investors on his email list. I have only met this particular agent one time, and communicated via email a couple of other times. He seems like a good guy with good knowledge of the Pittsburgh real estate market. However, this email really hit a nerve with me.
Real estate agents and real estate investors do not always agree on everything, which is fine. Real estate is one of the most subjective industries that you will ever encounter. This is part of the reason that it has both remarkably low barriers of entry, but also a remarkably steep learning curve.
