Jeannie, there are two national sources of auctions that are well known. They are:
Auction.com and Hubzu.com. As a new agent, you should avoid Auction.com

Be aware their are many other auctions available on a local or regional basis. Unfortunately, you will need to be on HIGH ALERT because the terms and conditions of every auction, and the situation of the real estate is different.. You have to start somewhere, and just like most of us here, you can figure it out but you must invest the time and REAL Everything.

Set up an account on Hubzu and Auction and read the terms of use and actually register for an auction (don't bid) so you can get the documents revealing the terms and conditions. READ THEM.

Go to local and government auctions, and register. You will receive the terms and conditions as a result. READ THEM.

Now, as a new agent, use the published auction schedule in for advertising. This is a good place to start as you create your bread and butter market strategies.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
Make certain you understand how you will be paid in each auctioned property. Sometimes, you will find the buyer must pay you directly. If you don't cover this issues at the start, you WILL end up working for FREE. That is not a good start. READ EVERYTHING.

HI Maria:

I've lived in the Miami Lakes, Mami Springs, Hialeah areas since 1972. My personal opinion is that Miami Lakes is a great city for families with young chldren. It is a city recently incorporated into the Town of Miami Lakes. It is a mix of different land uses: Conds Townhouses, Single Family Homes, all surronded by Lush Landscaping.

The main attraction is appropriately named "Main Street" lined with shops, cafes, Movie theaters and restaurants. There are also parks and placese of worhsip. The demographis is mostly middle to upper middle class. As far as the crime rate, your best bet is contact the police department locaed on Miami Lakes Drive for information specific to the area.

I hope this answers all your questions! I look foward to hearing from you.

Regards,
