CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OwnAmerica, a pioneer in bringing technology and services to the institutional Single-Family Rental (SFR) market, announced today that they will be holding certification seminars for real estate agents at the Five-Star Conference in Dallas on September 11. OwnAmerica founder and CEO Greg Rand will lead the seminar.
More than 500 real estate professionals are scheduled to participate in the seminar and earn Five-Star SFR certification. The seminar will cover:
- Fundamental housing economics
- Measuring and evaluating yield and ROI
- Rental portfolio valuation
- Analyzing and presenting markets
- Servicing investor buyers
- Servicing investor sellers
- Building an investment portfolio of your own
"During the last five years, the SFR industry has taken great strides toward becoming a more efficient market as the technology and new practices invented for hedge funds and other institutions have become more commonly used by all investors," explained Rand. "SFR Investors benefit greatly when they can be assisted by local professionals who understand the asset class. To date, very little training has been offered to traditional real estate agents in this space. The Five-Star certification is an important step in improving the performance of the SFR market."
Founded in 2010, OwnAmerica has been at the vanguard of the revolution to institutionalize SFRs, America's largest asset class. The company created tools and online markets for institutions to buy and sell performing SFR properties and has trained and certified more than 4,000 real estate agents to service SFR clients. Now those tools, technologies and professional services are being offered to SFR investors at every level. OwnAmerica.com now offers free portfolio analysis to SFR owners and a private marketplace to buy and sell rental homes.
