How To Find Deals other than Direct Mail

1 Reply

Hey All,

I wanted to know some ways you guys find deals other than Direct Mail. Direct Mail is great, but I don't think you should rely on one strategy. Maybe we can get a list of different ways people are using. Here's a few from me:

1- Code Enforcement: Houses with lots of violation tend to have motivated sellers.

2- Driving For Dollars: Driving the block seeing what has uncut lawns and a deferred maintenance.

QUESTION: If it's vacant, how do you guys contact the owners? That's always been a challenge.

Thanks in Advance

In some areas you can go on the county website. If you have trouble, you can call to ask them at the registry of deeds or the tax assessor's office (they will have the tax bill address).

You might try getting in touch with the neighbors.
