Motivated seller listings

@Josh Perez Are you looking for the term "motivated seller" on the mls listing? You can set up a search with your realtor to get that started or do one yourself using keywords on Zillow. Doug has a point that any seller can become motivated over time, however, it doesn't hurt to start with the low hanging fruit when "motivated sellers" are used as a marketing tool on certain listings. Usually listings on the MLS longer than 60 days result in motivated sellers so you could work out a deal with a listing agent in some of those cases.

@Tanya Lechner Have you ever run into a "motivated seller" listing where the seller was actually motivated? In my experience it just means the seller is now desperate to sell the house for more than it's worth, instead of just normally wanting to sell the house for more than it's worth LOL :)
