Smart real estate investors purchase properties at trustee sales which are scheduled at the courthouse steps of counties in Maryland.
If you want to work in this sector, you need to learn about it. There are many risks. Start by attending the trustee sales in your county until you fully understand the process.
Homepath is a good place to find foreclosures & hubzu for foreclosures.
Good Luck Investors are a different breed.
If I read correctly, your question is,"Where can I find property?"
It matters not who the intended buyer is. Your question is the exact same question every real estate professional has been seeking solutions for which they spend mountains of money.
No one is going to reveal what has cost them so much to attain. You should know that already.
However, I will give you a vapor to follow. That vapor is 'unintended home owners."
Best of success.
Use appropriate search terms in the MLS.
Good morning Larry. Realtors bring me properties to flip on a regular basis.
Usually investors have several agents looking for properties that match their criteria. You might find some deals in the mls, on craigslist, on for sale by owner sites, or just by identifying soon to be tear downs. In desirable areas though, many builders are looking for the same thing so there will be competition.
Larry, excellent question!
as david said, how are they fixed for funds? if... they have cash then that makes for power on your/their part. we shop craigslist, also advertise on craigs, we also have a commercial website, but it isnt very helpful Loopnet. also you can actually go door to door or search owners through county records that homes look like something is up. also become buddies with the big reo guys in your area
Go to your local Real Estate Investment Association meetings. You will meet dozens and dozens of buyers, many people with money, many looking to find realtors that will work with them. Pitfall, write offers. Upside you get paid everytime you find them a deal, you can double end, you are good/loyal, you will find endless opportunitiies if you play your cards right while networking.
