BiggerPockets Podcast 096: Finding Deals, Wholesaling and House Flipping in a Hot Market With Anson Young

by |

Real estate investing isn’t always about the speed of the chase – sometimes patience is key and the amount of deals you close might not be as important as the quality of each deal.

If you’d like to hone your deal-finding skills and knowledge of your local market, don’t miss out on this BiggerPockets Podcast episode, where we sit down with Anson Young to discuss the art of unearthing great deals, which properties are the best to flip, and how to handle a hot real estate market.

Anson got started in the real estate world back in 2004, when he moved to Arizona and bought his first house. A year later, he sold the property and moved back to Denver with his first big check,  and he has been in the Colorado real estate game ever since. Exploring many sides of real estate investing, he’s found a niche in the wholesaling market and continues to grow his network and expertise of the local real estate environment.

If you want to hear more about the many forms of real estate investing and how to break into your local market, be sure to check out this episode!

    Hi Anson,

    Fantastic show (again). I also found the tip on finding private lenders to be brilliant – and if you don’t mind me asking – was the list you were referring to for that list the “Private Party Lender Prospects” on Listsource? If not, can you let me know what search criteria you used? Thanks again.

    Great podcast.
    One question, in the q/a section of the podcast, @Anson mentions looking for contractors at Home Depot when they open (early morning). I’d like to know what this means (not the ‘early morning’ part 🙂 ). Do you stand out front and ask people entering if they’re a contractor looking for work? Post fliers? I often see a small group of men standing near the road; presumably day laborers. These folks might be great for ‘heavy lifting’ scenarios, but we’re looking for experienced/capable craftsmen, ideally ones we can start a working relationship with. Kindly explain.
    Best, –MA
