Any tips for finding desirable investment properties (aside from the usual MLS/real estate agent)?

It seems like (atleast in Atlanta), properties are getting snatched up so quickly. Are the majority of successful investors finding out about potential investments before they even hit MLS? Any suggestions on auction websites, FSBO websites or anything else that you have had success with?

You're right, Russ. I was a little too vague. Sorry! I am looking to buy and hold as rental properties.

Jay, I've been keeping an eye on Craigslist, but no luck as of yet. I'm intrigued by you suggestion of sending out letters. Have you had any personal success with this?

There are always great opportunities out there!  Your question needs additional details for best guidance.  Are you looking to buy and hold?  Are you selling other properties?  Are you looking for flips?

First, get a good agent that knows these owners well which may prompt an off market deal.
Second, oddly enough, craigslist has been a good source in the past, but it is hit and miss here.
Third, send a letter out to owners in your area of choice.  You may want an agent for this as an agent is able to obtain the ownership contact information easily.
