Hope all is well. I have 2 questions.
1. My friend wants to do retail flips. I'm trying to find deals on MLS for her. It is so difficult to find deal below market value at this stage. I know some top players still flip 200 houses a year but it is difficult for me and many new investors. My questions is how do I search for those properties on MLS. I use key words such as "motivated seller" or "fixups" on the hot sheets but it doesn't work well. Do you have a better way to search for it.
2. I'm interested in becoming REO or short sale listing agent. However, I'm a new agent haven't done any deals so far. Is it possible for me to start as REO agent or shall I get some experience as selling agent then move to REO listing agent.
Thank you very much for your time.
