I am new to the game here, I am wondering what you all think the best way to find my first deal would be? From what I have been reading, there are plenty of ways to go out and find deals. I realize maybe a wholesaler would be getting their fee on a deal, but do you all think that is the quickest easiest way to find a deal? I would be a cash buyer for my first couple of deals. Any insight would be helpful! Thank you in advance!
It depends if you are flipping or buying and holding. If flipping a wholesaler might be okay, if you are buying and holding you might want to look on MLS for your first property. It will not mathematically be the best properties but will offer a bit more protection in terms of having contingencies and inspections etc.
Thanks Aaron, I am looking to flip more than to buy and hold. Outside of finding a wholesaler/wholesale deal, what would you suggest?
@Hailey Brown also working with a realtor who deals with investors is a good idea
Thanks Caleb, should I just search around in the areas I am interested for realtors, or is there somewhere I can find realtors that deal with investors?
@Hailey Brown sometimes you can find realtors that work with investors by talking to a property management company.
