Real Estate Investing Property Search

5 Replies

Hello, My name is Antony F. Munoz from Portland, Oregon and I am new to REI. When looking for an investment property, besides the MLS, what are some other good ways to find deals? I really appreciate any and all responses!

@Antony Munoz I'd search craigslist, facebook marketplace, do some driving for dollars, direct mail with targeted lists and even try cold calling if you're brave! Networking with local agents, wholesalers, etc can be helpful as well. Tell your friends and family what you're doing. The more people that know you're investing in real estate then the more likely you are to find a deal.

 Hey Dan Weber,

I will definitely have to give those things a try! I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to leave me a meaningful response! 

Thank you,

Hi @Antony Munoz ,

I wanted to add on what Dan said. He has a lot of great pointers in how to get off market-deals. Some other actions you can do is look for FSBO in your area and try to negotiate with them yourself. Like cold-calling, door knocking can be good, but it does take a little bravery and patience. Good luck on your search and happy hunting! Feel free to reach out to connect
