I’m in Edwardsville, Illinois. Are you licensed in Illinois? or Could suggest someone? I am having trouble finding a good “investment sensitive” realtor in my area. I am looking to do my first rehab.
How to explain MLS criteria to agent… - Posted by MM

My agent is telling me that he can’t search with keywords for possible fixers. I don’t want to tell the guy his business, but I need some advice as to how to ‘try’ to expand our search.
What do you guys ask for ?

It depends on the interface he has to do his searches with. I’m and agent in St. Louis. The MLS is now online for us with a pretty good interface. Several search screens and a customizable screen. One of the options is ‘Marketing Remarks’. I can set up ‘Saved Searches’ for a particular area or zip, with a price range and add ‘as is’ in the marketing remarks and get a ton of fixers. Of course you may get a house that the washing machine is included ‘as is’, so it’s not a true fixer, but it doesn’t happen alot.
