Best Place to Find Short Sales

4 Replies

Aiming to do about 2,400 mailers a week. With data pulled from multiple sources. But I want a way to get Short Sales w/o the MLS.. Since I do not have access to it!

I would call around to the local real estate offices in your market and find out which agent(s) are doing the most short sales and tell that agent that you're a buyer looking for deals and ask them to send any new listings your way as soon as they get them. I have had a LOT of success doing this very thing.

 I'm not sure exactly what you mean, could you clarify? Finding short sale prospects isn't tough....you use a reverse equity list. But the short sale process itself requires the property be listed I believe. The bank generally won't agree to the reduction without an opportunity to find out what the market will bear.

Well I use to be a buyer for a firm and I wasn't sure how my prospects came to be. I just got a list and started putting homes under contract... I am new to using ways to build my own list. Thanks for the info. 

I have started emailing a lot of the agents I have worked with in the pass and they all seem to be very willing to do so. Thanks for the advice Zach.
