Dear Investor,

I am a certified REO/Short Sale agent and specialize in those types of homes. I have closed over 65 of this type of property in the last 24 months. I have an investor listing notification system that I send to a list of investors 3 times a week updating what is on the market and what has change in the way of price as listings do go down based on the particular banks formula.

If you would like to join that list or provide me with specifics of what you are looking for I would be happy to provide you that information.

Hillsborough County has a large inventory of homes in this category to choose from. In order to give you the best service possible I would need to know the following:

Price Range: What's your price cap?
Area of town: Hillsborough County is very large geographically. Are there particular areas you want to concentrate on? Think about this as well - there may be 2 equally priced homes but 1 in a better neighborhood which would allow for a better ROI for rent or resale. A professional Realtor would truly be able to help you with this.
Configuration of Home: Is a 1 bedroom/1 bath OK? Or are you looking for a 3/2?
Type of Rehab: Some of these really low priced properties will require full rehab - plumbing, electrical, etc. How much rehab are you prepared to do? Full? Or do you just want to change cabinets, flooring and paint?

Even though this info was not provided, I am including 2 links for you to browse through REO and Short sale properties in Hillsborough County. FYI, I am assuming that you want to focus on Hillsborough county, but Pasco and Pinellas also have a slew of REO and Short sales to choose from.
