I am a fairly new investor. I own my home, however I would like to begin looking into apartment buildings.

What should I ask the potential apt. bldgs sellers when I call them so I don’t appear unknowledgeable and scare the deal away?

What size deals/#of units should I look at?

Is there a website that list the sellers of apt. buildings?
