So, here’s a question I get asked often by investors, after I've explained the advantages of working with ICG: what will it cost me? When I explain how, in most cases, it’s going to cost them nothing, the next question is something like – what’s the catch? Or, then how does ICG make its money? These are legitimate questions, because we all know, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. The answer is, yes, ICG does get paid. However, it isn't you, dear investor, that pays us.
The ICG Real Estate Advantage.
When you work with us at ICG, you are introduced to a whole network of builders, realtors, property managers and even financers. You are given a variety of options and there is always someone there to show you the ropes. I have worked long and hard to simplify the process of real estate investing for my clients, and it works – whether an investor wants to buy one or one hundred homes!
It’s a self-sustaining system, as I explain in this short video. There are a lot of people that are beholden to ICG for bringing buyers and customers their way. It is these people who share their commission with us: realtors, property management teams and so on. However, there are times when buyers have to pay a small amount – as in the case of the Raleigh-Durham area. Here, commissions are really low right now and buyers are having to make up the difference in terms of the brokerage.
Can you afford not to have the ICG advantage?
I think of my own property portfolio as the best advertisement for ICG Real Estate. People see how well I have secured my own financial future and they want ICG to do that for them! We deal in volumes – while the amounts that we make from our various business partners may not be large amounts, it all adds up to a lot.
So really the question you should be asking is not, can I afford to work with ICG, but can I afford to not work with ICG? Check out this episode to know what it’s all about, and check out ICG Events to find out about exciting real estate investment opportunities that you cannot afford to miss.
