If you find yourself in a situation where you are looking for people to purchase an apartment complex you happen to be selling, then chances are that you will want to find out what the profile of people who are likely to be really in a position to buy apartment complexes is like, so that you can target your advertising and marketing efforts properly.
The need to know, beforehand, what the profile of people who are likely to be buying apartment complexes is accentuated by the fact that it is extremely hard to find guys who have fixed a sign on their door to the effect that ‘we buy apartment complexes.’ You may find guys with signs to the effect that ‘we buy houses’ or ‘we buy plots’…and so on, but it is very rarely that you will find guys with a sign on their door saying that ‘we buy apartment complexes.’ What this means, then, is that anyone trying to find the kind of people who would be keen to buy apartment complexes has to use some sort of a profiling technique if they are to get really good prospects.
So what is the profile of people who are likely to be in a position to buy apartment-complexes?
Well, for starters, the people who are likely to be in a position to buy apartment-complexes are those who are in the real estate business in a big way. Of course, this is too obvious to mention, and it might seem so, until you get to see how many people looking to sell things like apartment complexes to people who would not be interested in that scale of property even it was being offered for free, if only for the ‘management burden’ that a huge real estate project comes with.
It is important to note, with regard to the aforementioned attribute of people who are likely to be in a position to buy apartment-complexes, that having the type of money that can purchase such apartment complexes or not is not really a strong enough criterion for determining who can buy and who cannot buy, because the propensities to buy in real estate are typically a matter of interest, rather than ‘financial muscle’ – meaning that a real estate investor who has shown a huge appetite for small properties, gulping up thousands of such small properties (and who would be expected to be a good prospect when looking for a person to buy an apartment complex) might turn out to be utterly unable to purchase such an apartment complex, not because they are financially incompetent, but for the simple reason their interest is in the smaller properties, rather than in the bigger properties the size of apartment complexes.
So at the end of the day, the best way of determining people who would be in a position to buy apartment-complexes would be by looking at the scale of their operations alongside their interests, as manifested on their past purchase track records, so that people who have shown an interest in buying apartment complexes (rather than people you perceive as being ‘well monied enough to buy’ them) would make better prospects when looking for apartment complex buyers.
