Locating vacant homes

2 Replies

Hello all my name is Noah and I’m fairly new to REI I’ve been looking to buy my first property for awhile now but can’t seem to find the deal I want to pull the trigger on whether it’s due to scarcity or the seller just not budging on price. So I’m trying to locate vacant homes as they can be very motivated to sell. What are some ways you guys locate vacant homes besides “driving for dollars” I’ve tried looking online but can’t seem to find any good clear info on how to do it. Any help is very much appreciated! Thanks

 Ask mailmen. Also, you can run addresses through the USPS database to find ones that the USPS isn't delivering to.

Ok thanks
