Everyone knows, including us here at Threefold Real Estate Investing, that it's a very difficult time to find good real estate deals. So, I wanted to devote an episode to talking about how an investor can go about finding a deal even in this ultra competitive market.
The different methods for finding deals include marketing directly to the seller (mailing campaign, cold calling/texting), working with wholesalers, attending auctions, searching the MLS (loopnet.com, crexi.com) and working with brokers.
Based on my experience, working with brokers is by far the most effective method for finding good deals right now. But, getting a broker to take you seriously is easier said than done, especially if you're just getting started and don't have a track record. In my opinion, the most important thing for a broker is to be sure the potential buyer will actually be able to get the deal all the way to the closing table. In order for you to convince the broker that you're the best buyer, you may need to borrow a more experience investor's track record and credibility by partnering.
Prayer Request: Our church is currently studying the book of Jonah, so my prayer comes from Jonah: "Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love." I pray that I don't let things, like real estate, become an idol for me, but that I would instead put all my faith and hope in the Lord.
