“Comps” are a list of similar properties that have actually SOLD. I think what you want is “a list of expired listings.” I’ve had realtors pull them for free, however if you can’t get it done for free, then you might offer them something for pulling the list, more like around a $100. It takes less than 10 minutes to pull a list and fax it to you. Almost any Realtor should be happy to do it for around a $100. You can offer to pay them more just for deals you do, but its works better if you pay them when they pull the list instead of them waiting for you to complete the deal. It would be a good idea to pay them a bonus on deals you do and that way they will be happy to pull any computer work (suchs as comps or active listings)for you also.
