how to utilize mls to the fullest

Please share your ways on what parameter searches you use in mls to pull out investment properties. Any tips, ideas will be much appreciated

Hi Denver…

I use the MLS for comps mostly, but I occasionally do searches for listed investment properties. What I do is figure out the areas I want to search in, ie zip codes or area codes, then I put in BR, BA, SQ FT, etc. From there I go to marketing remarks, or agent remarks and type in “as-is, handyman special, investment property, etc.”. I have found a few leads this way, but I will never become a millionare finding investment properties on the MLS. Realize how many channels the home has to go through to get listed. If it is a real great deal it wouldn’t make it to MLS. Thats just my opinion and experience. Good luck!!
