What's the best way to find sellers n find a good deal? I've been using apps like Zillow to find homes but it doesn't seem like the right approach to finding a good deal for me and a potential buyer
Most do massive mail campaigns and walk the streets to find rough looking properties. Eviction court from tired landlords is another avenue. If you do not have thousands to put into mailers you might want to go work for another investor.
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN.
It's great to want to be independent but generally you have to learn and put in time before you get to that level. The key is if you are working on something that will eventually lead you to the greater things you are seeking. View things as stepping stones and not being permanently stuck in a situation you want to get out of. Sometimes doing the hard things nobody else wants us to do gets us to where we want to go.
Thanks, I would love to work for and learn from another investor & hopefully I'll find a future mentor but in the mean time I want to do anything I can to learn hands on
Zillow is NOT a good way to find motivated seller. Send out a mailing campaign and check Craigslist. Turns out the hard part isn't actually finding the sellers its negotiating price.
