Today we talk with Byron Fisher, owner of BT Realty Services in the Tampa Bay area, about his real estate strategies during this COVID19 pandemic. Although Byron only started in real estate in 2012, he has become quite successful in a short amount of time. Byron also gives his advice to new investors on how best to navigate the current real estate market and mistakes to avoid. Also discussed is that we are in somewhat of an artificial market as there really hasn't been much of a change in prices and valuations due to the pushing off of foreclosures and evictions - but it's only a matter of time before this changes.
