Develop a network of barefoot bay agents. One technique that might help you get insider access to properties prior to their being listed on the MLS is to contact agents directly, requesting that they call you if they come across any newly listed properties that meet your needs. The advantage for the agent is that you can offer them 100% of the commission earned on the transaction. It is best to work through a few agents, rather than to use a mail campaign where you contact many different agents. Quite simply, the costs involved in the mail campaign do not make this a worthwhile strategy.
Use the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). As a first time investor, you will most likely be far better off if you purchase a property that is already listed for sale on the Multi-list. This is opposed to the idea of bargain-hunting. The reason is that unless you know exactly what you are looking for, and have a good idea of the costs associated with renovations, you are going to be making a more predictable investment if you use the MLS. Not every property on the Multi-list is occupant-ready and there may still be repair costs associated with the property, so you should still be careful about inspecting a property prior to its purchase.
