I would be very curious to know how you made your decision (if you did) in choosing your Realtor. I have worked with multiple investors and have been a licensed Realtor for nearly ten years. I have bought and sold my own investment properties and am also currently a property manager for a multi-family townhome complex. I also agree with Barry that you should interview several Agents, you'll know the right one when you find him/her.

I am an experienced investor who continuously purchases properties nationwide like the one you are looking for. Our team not only buys, rehabs, holds, and/or sells Bank properties but we also purchase large lots of loans that are not performing and you can foreclose on them; in some case anywhere between 30-55 percent below market value. I have to be honest with you though, these properties are not readily available in the area you are looking in. Some questions I would have for you are, what are you looking for? Have you been pre-qualified? There are some government properties which you may bid on but you have to have your loan in place before submitting the package. Right now a type of property where you will get some upside is in the multi-tenant sector. Real estate investment is fun and you are looking at the right time. 805-404-7252

Hi Brian, it was great to speak with you. This is a great plan that requires some serious considerations about where the best possible upticks might come in the future as well as what type of tenants you want to be working with in the immediate future. One thing I forgot to mention, since you are planning to do your own management of the property is to get a copy of "The California Landlords Law Book" by Nolo Press. You may have already seen it in a prior post you read but I think this is the bible for non-licensed landlords. It includes lots of easy to gleen and reference about rules, suggestions and even forms, to help you address the many considerations that arise when you are a landlord. All of my landlords have a copy but since you are in your planning stages, well you might enjoy all that you can read and consider before your next step. You'll find it at amazon or Barnes and Noble and Nolo Press updates the versions frequently so, get a recent version.

Good Idea, we just closed on a property in the fourth quarter of last year. Over the past 50+ years we have been involved in buying, fixing and selling Real Estate. I am an independent broker and I handle both Real Estate and Mortgage.

The key today is finding the properties BEFORE they hit the multiple listing, that is the only way you will have a chance of scoring a great deal.

Give me a call and we can talk about it.

You should interview several agents. I have extensive personal experience with Buy-n-Hold properties, dating back to the early 1990's. At one point we owned 5 'bricks and mortar' residential investment properties -- and then I decided to get my real estate license :-) It's great to hear from you Brian!
