10 Ways To Find Investment Properties

If you really want the best deals in investment properties, you have to increase your odds by finding more deals. Who is more likely to get a cheap apartment building? An investor that looks through the online listings websites and calls it a day, or the one that uses ten resources? Here are the ten:

  1. Talk – Let people know you are looking and sometimes the properties will come to you. There are a lot of owners out there who want to sell, but haven’t yet listed their property.
  2. Use the internet – Go to a search engine and enter the type of real estate you are looking for, along with the city you want to invest in. You never know what you might find.
  3. Drive around looking for “For Sale” signs – Owners often don’t want to pay to keep the ad in the paper every week, so you won’t see all properties there.
  4. Find abandoned properties – That’s a pretty clear sign that the owner doesn’t want to deal with the property. He might sell cheap.
  5. Find old “For Rent” ads – Call if they are a few weeks old. Landlords are often ready to sell, especially if the haven’t yet rented the units out.
  6. Talk to bankers – You might get a property that hasn’t been put to auction. Action property not necessarily always the cheaper in town.
  7. Offer someone a finder’s fee – There are people that always seem to hear about the good deals. Have such people coming to you. There are many people out there sourcing deals. There are the people that can get you good deals. If you are investor looking for deals, try here.
  8. Eviction notices – If your local papers publish eviction notices, or if you can get the information at the courthouse, it can be useful. A landlord who just went through the process of evicting tenants is a likely seller.
  9. Old listing ads – If you call on two-month-old “For Sale” ads, and they haven’t sold, they may be ready to deal. Owners often give up the effort, but still would love to sell. Help them out!
  10. Put an ad in the paper – “Looking for investment properties to buy,” might be sufficient to generate a few calls.
