Where do you look for homes? Just in the newspaper? Internet?

If you are a beginner, looking for homes can be very educational. I did that when I began, but soon I learned that looking for homes is not the best way to find deals. Instead look for motivated sellers. If you have a motivated seller, you have a possible deal irregardless of the circumstances of the home itself.

Read Kaiser’s article on this website re finding motivated sellers. Good Luck!

#1 Try getting a hold of a couple of real estate investors advertised in your local newspaper.

#2 Joining your local landlord or real estate investor club.

#3 Getting in your car and driving around the neighborhoods that you want to target.

#4 Place flyers around town telling people what you are doing as well as making up business cards to hand out to everyone you come in contact with.

#5 Look for homes in your Homes 4 Sale monthly magazines by realtors or fsbo’s

#6 Call tax assessors office to find out who owns boarded up or vacant buildings in your target area

#7 Try locating a good realtor who has access to the Multiple listing and may be an investor themselves that knows the ins and outs realestate investing.

Just a few that I can think of that I have put into play.

Much Success!
