Yeah there is a better way…have someone do the driving around for you! Tell everyone you come in contact with about what you are doing. Let them know that you are looking for vacant houses and offer them a finders fee ($100 to $500). Now of course you let them know that they receive this finders fee if you close on the house they provided.
This is a good way to increase your eyes and ears. Does it work? Well I had a lady email me a couple of days ago with 5 vacant houses she ran across. I haven’t had any response from the owners yet, but I now have 5 more chances to land a deal that I otherwise wouldn’t have had and through no labor of my own.
Again, just let everyone know what you are doing and let them channel properties to you! Good luck!
