I want to ask if places like Zillow, Trulia and other internet sites can be a good place to source or properties?
@Tosin AgboolaZillow & Trulia are good for looking up sales/tax/assessment history. I like redfin.com or ziprealty.com for searching purpose.
Thanks and happy thanksgiving.
@Tosin Agboola I prefer to list my client's properties in Craiglist. There's also, trulia and zillow. I can't think of any better other than these Real estate websites.
My sister is looking to buy her 1st house. She's using a realtor but is also checking on Craigslist, Zillow & Realtor.com for anything else that's out there. Most of the buyers I talk to search those sites on their own.
I've found it to be (somewhat) effective to comb through Craigslist and Zillow for FSBO deals.
On Zillow you can set up a custom search for FSBO's that meet your requirements... For Craigslist its best to set up a https://ifttt.com "recipe" to comb through the for sale by owner section and send you an email for post that contain certain keywords and price points.
Out side of that the internet isn't all that useful for sourcing deals (other than MLS) IMO. MLS, Yellow letters, driving for deals, auctions, and utilizing wholesalers is how I source majority of my deals.
