After a while of reading, constant listening to podcast, networking, and analyzing deals, I closed on the first property today. I don’t think I’ll find another deal like this again for a little while but I picked up the property for 82k. One side was rented out and one side was gutted (Duplex). Put in 30k to make the gutted side habitable and sold for 172k. Felt great being able to pick up the check after the stress and mistakes. It was an amazing learning experience and I’m looking forward to the next flip here shortly.

What do you guys find to be the most successful way of picking up off market properties?
