    Yes. Find a mobile home park, buy the land out from under the homes. Raise the rent to the point where they have to abandon the home. Profit.

  • I think if you squat long enough it becomes yours.

    This is the only way I have every bought real estate. Off market is the way to go. Get a good agent and go door to door and leave a card.

      Idk maybe 1 in 200? So far? I've bought many houses this way but takes time so cannot be a volume play.

    No one else thinks this is creepy?

      Why would this be creepy? Most sellers are thrilled to have a buyer and not have to deal with repairs, staging, and real estate agents when they want to sell.
