Best ways to Find Deals

5 Replies

Depends on the type of deals you are looking for. Flips? Buy and hold? Are you just starting out or have you already got quite a bit of experience investing? For someone just starting out the cheapest way is to just look on MLS. It's free and while they won't be the highest return deals you could possibly get, there are still deals and there is basically no barrier to entry. Direct mail etc. may provide better deals but you have to put quite a bit of money in before you see any results.

@Scott Showers I do not personally use direct mail, as my buying volume is not enough to justify the expense, but a typical response rate will be less than 1% with even fewer of those who respond actually wanting to sell at a reasonable price.
