Advice on finding flips

8 Replies

Hey Everybody,

I am looking to flip single family homes in the greater Houston area. I was wondering if anyone had some advice on how to find wholesalers and investor friendly realtors to help find deals.

Thanks In advance.

You could drive around your prospective neighborhoods and look for those "We buy ugly houses for cash" signs.  A lot of those people are just wholesalers looking to find an flip a deal, and they may as well flip the deal to you.

I would look at which agents in your area actively sell flipped homes.   Most likely they are helping their investors on the front end finding deals.   If you can get on those agents radar they may give you chance to work with them.   This will also depend on if the current investor they work is occupied with their projects.   Therefore they may have need for someone like yourself to do a deal with.   Usually how it works is if they bring you a deal then you give them listing on the back end.  If the agent is the listing agent for that fixer they just need to disclose to both parties that they representing both of you. If you few of these relationships that can keep you busy with deal flow.

Look at listing that have sold.   Usually the pictures will make it looked it was flipped or many times it'll say the description flipped home recently renovated etc...   Pay attention to see who is the listing agent and if they have done handful like 2-3 in a year most likely they are good agent to contact.

The best method is to go direct to seller but you can Google we buy houses Houston or sell my house Houston, check out Facebook groups, REI meetups and similar groups and search MLS for houses that fit your criteria call the agent and tell them what your after.
