Hi Phmerc,

IP & Jack added very valuable concerns...

I would definitely be willing to do hard work of hunting out the desperado sellers in the community. I must be honest, I wouldn't really know where to start. Is this something I can do on my own, or would need to hire a real estate event for?

You need some education for sure, and possibly a good guide/coach/mentor eventually.

Start off at your local library. Check out "Nothing Down for the 2000's" by Robert Allen (the title is dated, but the content is solid & timeless.) Also read his book "Creating Wealth." Between the two, they cover close to darn near every private & creative deal structuring strategy.

Then, attend your local real estate investors' association;

An absolutely *OUTSTANDING* contemporary real estate investor/trainer/mentor/coach I know is Greg Pinneo;

Of course, there's a broad and deep base of archived info here, and some generous, live & real experienced landlord/investors that hang out here ready & willing to field even the craziest, rookiest, greenest questions... so don't be shy!
