Laura Y Laura Y, Real Estate Agent & Investor

Very straightforward with lots of practical information people buying their first house or two would not know.

Good advice on what you should be talking to your Agent about to find out what they know and don't know - determining whether they can provide you with the best service.

I wish all the buyers and sellers I'd worked with over the last 20 years had this guide on home buying. Knowledge is Power...

Matt N Matt N, Home Buyer

We read REOT's books after already starting to look around at homes to buy...

Man - did it change our perspective!

My wife and I both read the information and it was immediately impactful. The next weekend we went out we were so much more critical of what we were looking for in our next home.

Thanks Paul!

Welcome to ...

The Real Estate Opportunity Team (REOT) was started in 2005 as a way to help people make better home-buying decisions. Frustrated with agents and brokers who would take advantage of first-time home buyers, Paul Rodriguez started REOT to help the general public become more knowledgeable about the real estate market.

As an appraiser, he saw many questionable deals come across his desk. And appraisers, unlike most of the other participants in a real estate transaction, are not paid a commission based on a completed sale - so Paul's perspective on what makes a home valuable is unbiased and unconflicted. He has been promoting this unique, unemotional approach to buying real estate as a way to help people buy and sell properties that consistently maintain value in slow markets and appreciate faster in good times.

Now he is sharing this knowledge with everyone.

Led by Paul Rodriguez, REOT is a team of professionals experienced with Real Estate transactions as buyers, brokers, appraisers, investors and lenders who want nothing more than to help you navigate the crazy journey that is buying a house.

Yes, we sell some of this educational information - but we promise the small cost of our information is miniscule compared to the thousands you can save avoiding just one mistake.

But this site may not be for you...

  • If you know what the word gentrification means, you may not need us.
  • If you know what obsolescence is and how it affects real estate, you might be okay.
  • If you know the difference between an FHA insured loan and a conventional loan, you may be fine on your own.
  • If you understand the social, political and economic forces that allowed first-time homebuyers to cause the Mortgage Meltdown that led to the Great Recession, you probably have all the info you need to avoid being part of the next bubble.

But if you are a little confused about why the house across the street sold in a week and the one next door is still for sale after three months, we may be able to help.
