WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR DEALS ? ( website , MLS , Zillow ?)

3 Replies


I am looking for a single family home to flip , and I am also looking for a Multi Family home to do a buy and hold period on.  

My question is, where do you find your deals ?  
Not all of us have access to the MLS, and I hate being a slave to a realtor who's simply trying to make a quick 3-6% with no regard for me or my cash.

So how do you find deals ?  What website do you use ?

-- Figure out what you are looking for and then have a realtor put you in an auto email system so you get notified when properties meet that criteria.  This will likely be faster than searching Zillow or realtor.com manually each day.  You can do a  bit of investigation yourself instead of waiting for the realtor to present them to you.  If you like something, talk to your realtor to get more information and to view the property.

--Network with wholesalers in your area.  The good ones should have non listed properties.

If your relationship makes you feel like they are not contributing value, you have the wrong realtor.
