Welcome to the show! Today’s guest is Casey Powers, Broker and Property Manager at Strawberry Realty Property Management in Las Vegas, Nevada. Casey is here to chat with us about the new iBuyer phenomena that has hit the real estate industry, what iBuyer means and how agents can compete.

Casey breaks down how she believes traditional real estate agents can fight back in this market and how having the means to make cash offers on homes allows agents to keep a level playing field. She also talks about why these new convenience based companies are making property managers nervous and what it means for the rental market down the road. 

Listen in as this conversation brings to light what is happening with Amazon and Zillow, the pros and cons to the iBuyer concept and the choices that consumers now have to make between convenience and knowledge.

Welcome to the show! Today’s guest is Nicholas Cook from Rise Realty Inc. and Sleep Sound Property Management Inc. in Portland Oregon. Nicholas is in studio today to talk to me about Culture Index and the rules and regulation changes in the state of Oregon and in the city of Portland.

Brad asks Nicholas about being in San Antonio this week, the ins and outs of his newest acquisition and how they are using Cultural Index to make sure they have the correct people in place throughout their company.

They run through the issues his company will have with the new regulations and how it will affect his tenants. How Oregon is requiring all rental properties to be registered and what they are going to do with the data, also how hard it will be to raise the rent and evict renters if the need exists.

Listen in to this conversation and see if your area could benefit from these new laws or if they are just adding salt to the wounds of a market already in distress.
