Asked by Charles Polanski, Inglewood, CA Fri Aug 12, 2011

myself. I strategically buy, fix and sell properties where the deal can make at least a $10,000 to $25,000 profit. I seek deals where I am in and out quickly. I'm looking to partner with an REA that can provide me cash purchase listings in the hottest areas within Los Angeles County. I'd like to review at least 6 listings ASAP. I can provide the funds for the right deals. My price range is whatever price range is selling the best at the moment. The following listings are even more attractive to me: 1) Price reduction; 2) As-Is; 3) Vacant. There are so many opportunities in the L.A. market I know we can do great things together. Call me anytime at 800-690-4205 and respond via Trulia.com.

Onwards and Upwards,

Hi Charles,

It sounds like you're talking about fairly inexpensive homes judging from the returns that you mentioned. The real trick may be finding the best deals in L.A. proper which have higher demand and prices to maximize your profit margin.

By L.A. proper, I mean from Downtown to the beach between the Hollywood Hills and LAX... in other words, some of the most valuable real estate in Southern California.

I'm guessing that you already know Inglewood has some great opportunites. I'd also add the Baldwin Hills and Crenshaw area north to Wasington and Venice Blvds (right next to the Picfair district that was becoming so hot in the last market run-up.) There are also a few neighborhoods near to Culver City and the Marina which have lower prices that you might want to look into.

Hawthorne and Gardena to the south of Inglewood also present some solid buys, but I stil like the idea of selling nice, fixed up homes in L.A. proper.

Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to see some examples of what's on the market in these areas. I'm Also an agent in Las Vegas which has some of the best deals in the country right now... but that's an altogether different story.

By the way, I hope 'partner' isn't code for 'cut-rate.' Best of Luck.

Charles, Thanks for the email. Looking forward to meeting you someday re: investing in San Diego. It's really not that far from LA. In fact we are working with investors from LA and OC.
