Real Estate Investment Firms

What are Real Estate Investment Firms?

If you’ve ever purchased a single family home, you are likely already familiar with the parties involved in real estate: You have the seller (usually just a private individual like yourself), the sales agents, and the mortgage lenders. To the extent there are professional investors in the real estate process, they’ll be either “flippers” or developers who recently built or renovated a home and are now selling.

However, once you move up the ladder towards large scale multifamily projects or commercial developments, the buyers and sellers are not individuals, but are large institutional real estate investors and developers.

This guide was written to give you an understanding of the types and roles of real estate companies involved in real estate investing on the larger, institutional scale as you explore career options within real estate.
