From the millions of people who come to BiggerPockets each month, there are two issues that we hear about over and over and over: People can’t find deals, and they can’t find money. So today on the BiggerPockets Podcast, we’re excited to dive deep into these two issues with a good friend of BiggerPockets—Anson Young. Anson is an experienced investor (and new author!) who shares his best tips for finding real estate deals, even in a competitive market. You’ll learn his best direct mail tips, advice for talking with sellers, and much, much more!
