Getting started with finding deals!

4 Replies

Hey ,  everyone really appreciate you stopping to read my very basic question.  I am currently in the colorado area and studying to become licensed. I am currently looking for websites or databases for data on properties to run the numbers for the experience. what are the best ones until i am licensed and have access to much better data. hope that made sense. any advice is welcome. Thanks so much.

Why dont you call up a realtor to sign you up to receive a list of actual properties on the market to look at. Emails come in daily. Doesn't cost you a time besides getting a realtor's hopes up.

I was thinking more along the lines of people whom have filed evictions and have a certain amount of equity in the property. Also foreclosures with something that could filter a few things like equity and agents notes. anything like that people are using?

Foreclosure information can probably be found on something like, but they will charge a fee.  I somehow got on a weekly email list of foreclosures.  If you want me to forward last week's list, shoot me a PM.

For eviction information, you have to go down to the courthouse.  That wouldn't be bad practice anyway.  There may also be companies that will aggregate that for you.
