I’m finding some pretty good apt deals in east Cleveland if you’re not afraid of the area. Other than that I’m sticking to REO’s. I’m getting really good deals with the REO’s. Buy, rehab, rent, then pkg as performing portfolios and sell off or keep as rentals.
REO’s are simpler and just as profitable as short sales.
I’m here as well. I’m east of Cleveland in Lake County and i’m primarily working with Mobile Homes in parks (Lonnie Deals). I’ve invested personally in a few homes setting them up as lease options, and those are going well.
