Very “newbie” question! - Posted by Scott

I am interested in beginning my own “quick turn/flipping” business. I live in a very very tough sellers market in southern California!!! I can see the greater probability to resell quickly in this fast market once I tie a property up. But thats my hang up. What is my best approach for finding below market properties in a hot market like this? Newspapers? County Records? Word of mouth? What??? I’m ready to spend a lot of my precious time to find deals out there. I don’t want to “tread water” like I felt I’ve been doing recently. And once I find something, write an accepted offer and tie it up, then what?
I have yet to learn more about this area of investing obviously. I would rather learn by “getting my feet wet”, consulting a mentor, and getting physically active in the market place. Not by reading 100 more books! Any thoughtful advice would be great.
