Good suggestion. I should focus on one particular area and become familiar with it. Meanwhile, any quick ideas on how to get good comp’s when deciding whether to pursue a prospect or not?

I subscribe to a daily legal newspaper in L.A. that includes notices of default and REOs.

I’m kind of confused, though, because I’m not sure how to determine which ones are good to pursue and which to leave behind. Any advice on how I should use these listings to maximum advantage?

Also, I actually live south in San Diego, so L.A. is a little out of my way. Any advice on finding people to work with who would actually carry out the deals to completion through these listings?

Thanks much

I would suggest that since you live in San Diego to
either get the NODs from your County Recorder’s
office, or from a listing service like County Records
Research. Unless, of course, you work in LA during
the week, and are hanging out there, you can get
listings from ReTrans.

I live and work in Orange County, so I’m between the
two. This is what I do, and I’m primarily a note
buyer. I’m interested in the “hard” deals, where
there seems to be little or no equity. Please email
me if you’d like to talk.

it goes back to knowing your area well. Some people choose certain areas in which to invest in. The reason is they are totally familiar with the neighborhoods, the trends there, the values etc so that when a REO, preforeclosure or auction comes up they know if it’s one they should pursue.
