Find off-market properties


How Real Estate Investors Can Find Off-Market Properties in 2023 – Episode #416

Off-market properties have always been my #1 source of leads. In today’s episode, I’ll show you how real estate investors can easily find off-market properties in 2023. As a bonus, at the end of this show, I will tell you how you can get copies of my proven probate letter and my absentee owner letter. Both letters work exceptionally well when marketing to these folks.

First of all…

What exactly is an off-market property? How do you find them? And what’s in it for the seller since they typically take a discount when selling directly to a real estate investor?

Listen in, and I’ll tell you why I believe all real estate investors should be working with off-market properties.
