How I Found ALL Of My Investors

How I Found ALL Of My Investors

I'm a newbie, but have a piece of information that may help some new folks out there as well. This is how I found all my investors -buyers. I live in Iowa, so not sure how this may apply to your state, but now days alot of states act this way too. Many times now the accessors office has their properties online through each county of your state. What I did was do a name search on the properties in that specific county. My search term was these: Properties, Investments, LLC, and Rentals. What this did was bring up the company name that these investors where operating under. Many people that are big investors and serious investors will not operate under their name. They will operate under a company name usually with a LLC. I then searched for these people, got a phone number, and called them. I grew my buyers list from 0 to over 100 in a matter of days. I simply asked them if they would be interested in purchasing properties if I could get them cheap enough for them? I explained to them that I have contracts on these properties so I have a right to buy the properties first and foremost. If I choose not to exercise my right to buy, if they would be interested in purchasing the properties from me cheap? I told them upfront that they would be purchasing the property, but also buying my rights as well.

I am also just getting started and I need to build my buyers and sellers lists. This is something that I will definitely check out. I appreciate you sharing your ideas.

Good Luck,

Great Idea!

I never would have thought of that. I am going to try in Wisconsin and will post if it worked for me. Thanks for the tip!

Great way to get started

This is a very good idea and a way to find true investors and knock out the ones who will waste your time. When you see an investor that has purcahsed some homes, then you know that can be a good end buyer for you. Great work Destrie and keep it up!

Good Info

These are definately good strategies for finding investors. Have any of these investors bought properties from you yet?

Phone numbers

How are you getting a reliable contact phone number for these investors (or Owner(s) on Record) for properties in NOD status? I've tried AT&T's AnyWho site and sometimes I've gotten numerous results for one person (residing in Atlanta) with the exact same name as the Owner on Record for a property I'm looking at. Fulton County Property Assessor's site doesn't show the Owner's phone contact information. I've already gotten the Seller's mailing address from the Tax Commissioner's site; it's the same as the property address. I'm going to mail out a letter tomorrow, hopefully it will get forward to their new mailing address (hopefully).

I like to get in contact with them ASAP before someone else gets to the prize. Smiling

You've got to find your obstacles and call them out! Unsheath the sword, and do battle with whatever it is that holds you back!

Good job how many investors

Good job how many investors has your list grown to using this system? Is there a fee when you do your searches? I too am a newbie and I am curious about these things. I'm in Northglenn, Colorado and would like to hear more from you about this and I would also like to hear from other students in the Denver area, so please write to me and I will respond asap. Thanks for your time, Steve


No, I did not pay a fee since all the information is free at the accessor's office. I wouldn't really call this a "system" per se, just finding information out to help me succeed. I have buyers all over the state of Iowa, and some in Southern Minnesota. I only concentrated on the ones that had the most properties. One buyer I found doing this, he buys around 24 houses per month. So that just shows you that you will find your buyers by looking them up this way. (Kind of working backwards) Also, you can also use this information to partner up with an investor in your area if they are willing to do so.




Failure Is Not An Option

Great idea i'm just getting

Great idea i'm just getting started in NE PA and can use all the info I can get. Thank you and good luck.

RE: Always thankful for additional tools

Hello Destrie:

Really appreciate your sharing this information with us! Have not tried that approach before, but it certainly seems to make sense. I'll keep a record of my results and post them at the end of this month.

Keep up the good work!

To your success,

Awesome information. Thank you so much. I will definitely be trying this technique because I have a seller in PA looking to unload a property ASAP and if I can find a good investor using your technique then I could be a few steps away from closing a great deal. Thanks again for the info.


Thank you!

Great info, thank you very much!!


Might sound like a stupid question but I googled the county assessor for areas in PA as well as the county assessor where I live in NY and I cant seem to find the right page that will give me the info I am looking for. Where exactly did you go to get the property info. Thanks in advance for your help. Sorry for the stupid question.
