finding short sales

what are some of the best ways to find short sale deals. i have a private lender who is willing to lend me this money to buy properties.

Market to owners who have received a NOD (Notice of Default). This is public information you can learn to get from your courthouse or pay someone who will e-mail you a daily list.

I have NODs every two weeks for Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego counties if you are in S. California. 1,350 NODs filed from May 11th through May 23rd in the Inland Empire and San Diego alone.

It’s a frigging meltdown.
