What lengths will you travel to find that next real estate deal?

As a Real Estate Investor, are you will to do today what other investors are not willing to do? If so tomorrow you may be doing things that others only dream about doing! Tomorrow is a new day and as you begin the day you often are in search of the perfect outfit to wear. Then we want the perfect cup of coffee and as we might commute in the daily grind to work, we hope for a perfect drive. Each day we are in pursuit of something better, something better for us or something better for our loved ones. In real estate we are always in the pursuit of the perfect deal!

One question you might want to ask yourself is what extent will you go to find that next real estate deal? We can not expect to get every offer we submit because if we did we are offering too much. One key to consider is being persistent and always looking for new ways to generate leads to find deals. Each day continue to look for that next deal and be consistent with your effort.

You can give yourself little rewards to motivate yourself along the way. So many new real estate investors might think they can not find any deals or their realtor can not find any deals. However, are you doing everything you need to generate leads to find more deals? If not take a look at what you are doing each week and each month to find more deals.

Here are a few things you should be doing to locate some deal:

1. Use multiple Realtors to help you sift, sort, and screen through all the listings to find the deals

2. Use more than one Realtor and have them network to find some leads on pocket listings

3. Assemble an "Army of Bird Dogs" or Property Finders to help you locate target deals in your desired market areas

4. Contact all estate sales in the area to see if you can generate a lead on real estate that may soon be available for sale.

5. Go to auctions and try to locate some deals

6. Market with Bandit signs, fliers, business cards etc. to discover deals

@Joe J.

Taking action, driving around look for problems has created my most recent deals.
