Bird Dogging/Scouting yes, that is my intent. So how do I access an MLS expired listing without Access to the MLS?
Basically I’m a guy who works a 7-5 job and wants to free myself and pick up some extra income in my off time.
So I should scrap the FSBO’s and hunt “fixer-upper” properties? Learn how much needs to be put into it to re-sell?
Ok here is my dilemma: I’m quickly learning values of property. The more I hunt the more I learn, but I don’t have it down to driving by the house and knowing what it is worth. Which I think is the key. If I know the areas so well that I can value a house in a heartbeat I know I’ll be better off… Sort of like having a comp calculator in my head.
I guess there is so much out there that finding a niche is the best thing. Some people like fixer-uppers, some like to hunt FSBO etc.
Any tips of what to hunt for someone who lives in the largest bankruptcy state in the union?
