Especially if something negative comes up and puts a lot of pressure on you to get the house sold as quickly as possible.
Realtors and even real estate websites can take ages to sell a house. No matter what how cheaply you price the house or how great it looks.
Sometimes you just need to sell your house fast!
Now of course if you sell your house within days instead of weeks or years, there’s going to be a downside.
Usually the seller will need to take a bit of a loss on the house.
That’s great for people looking for the best possible deal, have cash ready to go and can close quickly.
If you’re in that position, the ball is in your court.
In fact, there are even huge companies that advertise everywhere that they’ll by your house quickly.
I see these signs all over the place whenever I’m driving around my house.
And it doesn’t matter what type of neighborhood that you’re in. It can be a poor neighborhood are very rich neighborhood, it just doesn’t matter.
There are people who are willing to buy your house quick.
And if you’re one of those people looking for a great flipping opportunity, you’re going to need to do a little advertising of your services.
In fact, if you’re willing to put the time and energy into your own website, you should be looking at some of the available websites online right now.
I guess you can call them your competitors. But it’s even better to look at them as open ended business opportunities.
Another way to find some great opportunities to flip is simply driving around and looking at abandoned houses. Or houses that look a little old and not being kept up.
If somebody is living in the house, you could simply leave them a letter in their mailbox explaining you would like the opportunity to try to purchase the house. If they’re interested just give you a call.
Or if you really have a lot of confidence, just go up and ring the doorbell and give them an offer.
I’ve done this a few times and it works! Trust me.
And sometimes here in Texas what you will find is a lot of snowbirds that only come down for the winter for our warmer climate.
Let’s face it, people die. Plans change.
These are great leads because it once you find the property all you need to do is go to the clerks office and find out who the owner is and give them a call.
Perhaps it’s property that was willed to a family member who is just not interested in living in Texas. If they’re not, give them an offer.
Send them some pictures of how the badly it looks. This will help you drive down the price.
There are a lot of ways to find some great deals in order to flip. You just have to look for them.
So either get working on that website, or fill up the tank and start driving every road in your area and find that diamond in the rough.
