The Real Estate Market in an iBuyer World

The share of residential properties sold to iBuyers has increased by nearly 3% every year between the years 2015 and 2018. That’s steady growth, and for real estate investors like myself, it’s not a pretty picture. I have felt and seen the change in the Phoenix market, and I know others have felt the same in their markets. So, today we are talking about all the ways you can outsmart the iBuyers. But, that’s not all, we cover everything from data hacks to cryptocurrency! 

Greg Bilbro, Co-Founder of GeoFlip, has been a real estate investor for over 11 years and is currently specializing in delivering ROI to real estate investors via GeoFlip’s lead generating system. As a matter of fact, I work with him, and he has helped my business and my bottom line.  

Greg is the perfect person to talk iBuyers with as well as how technology is changing the real estate game. We cover a lot of ground, so get comfortable!
