7 Unbelievable Ways You Can Find House Flips With Real Estate Agents

real estate agents

The most common way of finding houses to flip is through non-MLS listings but real estate agents can also be a valuable resource.

Most of the house flips that I have done especially in markets I am not familiar with have been through real estate agents. A good real estate agent who knows their market can help you snag a really good deal but first, you have to know how to work with them.

How To Work With Real Estate Agents

  1. REO Agents And Short Sale Agents

Real estate agents who have direct links with asset managers from banks and they are REO brokers, they will know before anybody else when deals become available.

Therefore, if a property for an investor is listed at $100, 000 but it’s listed at $150, 000, a good broker will comprehend this. If this is the case, there’s no need to put in your offer because the bank won’t accept anything that’s pricier than what they are willing to sell it for.

How To Ensure Your Real Estate Deal Flow Does Not Dry Up

1. The Old Property Owner

This type of property owner is not desirable to deal with which is probably why they do not appeal to many home buyers. It’s therefore your job to make them feel as if you are the only one who can purchase their home. If the property does not have significant structural damage then it might be good for a house flip but if it has extensive structural damage, make sure you get it at a serious discount.

Before buying this type of property, however, ensure that you hire a general contractor to inspect the home and also include a home inspection contingency clause in your offer. This way, you won’t be [click to continue…]
