That expired listings, and houses that are sitting for sale for a long time, are houses that the industry could not sell. If you are looking to buy sub-2 they usually are a bunch of payments behind and take considerable cash.
I suggest beefing up your bandit sign presentation. Look for folks in early trouble situations. Check cashing stores, etc. are often good locations. Seek out referrals from others who may be in contact with people who are hiving financial trouble. Auto repair shops are often a good source. Almost everybody has a vehicle. If they are having money problems often the mechanic will know. He is the one who is patching things up for them, they talk.
