Work with a specialist. Go to REO sites like

Find the local agent that is on a large majority of the local listings. Call their office and ask for an in-house buyer's agent. Specialists!

Hello Bob,

The obvious answer to your question is to ask other agents if they know anyone with residential property investment experience. Some agents work with investors and some are investors themselves.

The not so obvious answer to your question is to check out local real estate investment associations. This is where everyone you meet will be involved in investment properties and some are also agents or have agents that they work with. Association meetings are usually open to non-members for a small fee. A single night of networking at one of these meetings can result in many references for agents with residential property investment experience. Who knows, you may even join to become a member yourself.

A few associations that I know of in the Chicago and suburban area are Chicago Creative Investors Association, Northern Illinois REA and Midwest REA. I believe Midwest REA is the largest association in the area. Each association usually has a monthly meeting with the date, time and location specified on their web site.

Have a great day! Vince

Hi Bob,

That's a great question, as not all REALTORS are familiar with in and outs of finding a profitable residential rental property. My team and I do have experiance in this area as well as spreadsheets that we utilize with clients to help them determine the most to pay for a property based on repairs required and the rent thresholds fo the area.

If you would like to discuss this issue, please don't hesitate to contact us as this is a great time to be buying low, holding and then in the future selling high. This is the market my team and I have been concentrating on for the last six months. Feel free to contact me through my website!
