Heres my solution to your problem, but its not going to be easy or cheap.
Hang some bandit signs and let the world know that you buy houses. Make a realtor your friend inthe area you want to invest. Then get your wife or someoeneelse to do your leg work. get to know the market area yourself also. then do everything thru these people.
You could take on a handymen or contractor as a partner to estimate and make the repairs.
There! its that easy. Make offers to motivated sellers after having your wife or youself screen them after they call on the signs or other marketing tech’s.
It can get you started , where theres a strong committment to suceed, nothing will stop the ambitious.
Good Luck and GOD Bless,
