Real estate is one of the easiest assets for researchers to identify on their prospects. After all, we typically know a prospect’s home address and how much easier could it be than to simply stick that address into a real estate valuation website? Unfortunately, unlike that famous office supply store motto: “that was easy,” there is no “easy” button when it comes to truly understanding what a prospect’s property may mean as it relates to their potential capacity.
Focusing on residential real estate in the United States, this interactive session will provide a brief history of the mortgage industry and its impact on real estate values, define the different types of “values” you might encounter when researching a prospect’s property and explore some of the regional and situational nuances that you may want to consider.
While there may be no “easy” button, having a better understanding of – and appreciation for – the real estate information you encounter on a day-to-day basis, will arm you with the tools needed to better analyze how you decide to attribute real estate holdings to a prospect’s overall wealth and capacity.
