Newbie needs guidance, struggling to find property to flip help !

1 Reply

I'm a newbie. I have partners for funding. Trying to find a property to flip. Using an agent. Not getting anywhere so far. He just sends me new listings and every once in a while says "this one looks good". Should I use more agents? FInd a better agent? use other methods? Thanks for any help !

How did you find this guy?  Did you tell me details on what you were looking for?  Go over the listings he sent you and ask him why he thinks "these are interesting".  If you feel like he is a waste, then get other agents.  At the same time, put your efforts in also and ask people about their homes and if they know others that might be selling.  Don't wait for others to do the leg work.
