Searching for an Off-Market Multi Family (Houston)

2 Replies

Hey All,

Hope your rehabs are still on schedule and your closings aren't delayed! Had a question I'm having a hard time answering. I'm relocating to Houston from Dallas at the end of the year. My plan is to house hack a triplex or fourplex, living in one of the units.

I'm an off-market kind of guy, every deal I've done has been self-sourced. But, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to narrow my search to only multifamily properties. One post I found suggested that pulling county records would be the way to go. I was able to pull all taxed properties in Harris County (Houston) but one file would have them classified as MF with no address, others would have addresses with no classification.

Any thoughts on any other strategy I could chase down?

Appreciate the feedback! 

I network with brokers who do most of the deals in my market type. It’s easier with 5+ unit as there are fewer guys doing a larger % of the deals where as with 1-4 family there are a billion brokers. 

Anyway, see who’s selling want you want, give them the criteria, push the fact you’re legit, and ask what might be out there you can jump on. 

Works for me
