When looking for deals, what keywords do YOU use to find them on the MLS? How about on Craigslist? Here is a list Ive been putting together. Feel free to add more if you want. Hope this helps someone!
Good list @Kenneth E. ! I don't search nearly as much as I used to anymore, but in the past have used: Motivated Anxious Flexible Carry Owner Options Lease Hurry Help Down Before
to name a few. Cheers!
Nice! Thanks for sharing.

@Nat Chan I see this happen all the time too.
99% of the time, these are properties under contract by a wholesaler that sourced the house off-market and then a person with access to the MLS, will list it on the MLS with a marked up price as a form of "real estate arbitrage" in hopes of flipping the wholesaled home within the time it is under contract and profiting from the difference.
It's getting hard to find deals in Miami. The most powerful way for me has been relationships with agents, wholesalers, other investors, bird dogs etc. Relationships is important in any form of business, but in real estate it is extremely important. I have found deals on MLS, that when negotiated properly, materialized to be great deals.
"Last week a property sold on the MLS for $85,000 and it just popped up on Craigslist for $160,000 (still in the same condition)."
If this is your market, what is it worth?
@Kenneth E. I'm more interested in which words you've had luck with in your area and why you thought they worked?
not included in square footage
Look for the easy sf add ons. Agents have restrictions on how they advertise certain spaces. You can add the ductwork, or closet, or wall off a door to get the sf (and value) added to the house.
@Nat Chan Buyer beware! :)

Have you guys had any luck with copy and pasting all those keys words at one time? I keep getting an error.
Thanks for the post @Kenneth E. , I'm in the process of automating my Craigslist leads and this post helped me brainstorm.
By the way if you are searching CL don't forget to separate search terms with the " | " symbol (look to the right of P on your keyboard)
Motivated | Must sell | foreclosure
Nice point! Thanks!
