Morris_colleen answered:
If you have the money to invest, yes, Jacksonville is a fantastic area to do house flipping and great way to make money. To make even more money, once you've banked some profit, consider renting out some of the properties you flip. Real estate is always a good investment. Now that's not to say renting is without risk, but for the most part, renters are just like you and me, honest hard working people looking for a place to call home. Good luck. ... more

You will get three swings then you will be kicked off the team.
Experienced real estate folks have a good inventory of 'investor types' looking for a deal. Many of them have the cash, resources, and infrastructure to turn a deal in a week. Blackstone will pay 96% of market value for everything I find the meets their criteria. Then there is a giant pool of first look buyers who will pay retail for the opportunity to avoid competing. You need to do a MUCH better job selling your position. From what you have FAILED to share, you are the classic time hole who will suck up resources, is indecisive and very likely is not in control of the money to be spent. Your words suggest you just escaped a Gariozzsi seminar which instructed you to find a few agents who will do all the work for you.
-------------- As Steve stated, if you want action, identify the market you are playing in. PRICE, Purpose, funding source and timeline. An agent will invest 8 to 60 hours in a transaction. The EXPERIENCED agent will avoid situations that haven't a snowballs chance in FLORA of succeeding. State your proposition better.-----Best of success, ------Annette Lawrence, Broker/Associate Remax Realtec Group, -------- Palm Harbor, FL------ 727.420.4041 ------

Mike Hill answered:
Hi, I have a perfect investment for you. I have an ebay auction live right now for a 3/1 in Jacksonville. The property rents for $650-$700 a month and sold earlier this year for $65,000. Comparables are around $50k. It has central A/C and is in overall good condition although it needs cosmetic repairs.

Asking price is $18,900. My auction is for the down payment (current highest bid is only $6.00) and

I will OWNER FINANCE the balance!

If you prefer to purchase outright (without financing) we can discuss that option as well.

Call, email or text me with questions - 561.444.8470 OR

Good Day,

The Bank Owned properties, REO, are a whole different animal to persue.

The best advise is: find an experienced realtor you feel you can work with. Set up the guidelines, and get some offers in.

Richard Burn…, Real Estate Pro in Jacksonville, FL

Richard Burnett answered:
That's a good question. There are several factors that you should know about your investment strategy. Of these factors, price range, demographics, cash flow, return on investment term, financed/cash/hard money financing, and potential maintenance expense would narrow down a property profile. Your ability/desire to landlord, your proximity to your investment, and setting up your back office systems to effectively market, manage, and stay compliant is another factor that will help determine the range of areas that would work for you.

I have several pro formas I used to analyze rehab expenses, subject to value, financing, monthly expenses/roi/cash flow that may help you determine the purchase price you are most comfortable.

Buying right is key, you have to move quickly - the good deals get offers within the first few days. You must have verified funding documents (proof of funds or prequalification) on hand to submit with any offers on bank owned or short sales. The westside has attracted several buy and hold guys that seem pretty bullish on the area.
