					?It is no secret we are in a down real estate market. Almost every day the newspaper
and television news broadcast tells us about the foreclosure crisis. This site is devoted
to exactly that but there are other arenas you can find deals. Hopefully this article will
spark your creative juices and get you to looking under every rock.

This may sound macabre but death is an opportunity for the savvy investor. The
surviving spouse may just wish to "dump" the property as he/she can't bear to live in
the house as an empty nester with all those memories. Sometimes the heirs to the
property live out of state and only want the cash. Don't overlook this arena.

Divorce seems to be more common than marriage these days. I personally found a
house owned by the husband and all he wanted was to get rid of it and fast. He didn't
want the soon to be ex get any part of it. I'll admit that was a strange situation but I
guess the emotions present in a divorce can make people do funny things.

America is facing not only a foreclosure crisis but a job crisis as well. Outsourcing
and layoffs seem to be the norm. However, not everyone is losing their job. In fact,
some people are still being promoted and as a result are forced to relocate. My wife's
cousin is such a person. Unfortunately for us he lives on the East Coast.

Don't overlook apartment houses. You may be able to pick up a nice apartment house
because the present owner is having management or rental staff problems. You have
to do some super sniffing to learn what is going on inside the management office but
if you know people who are tenants ask them what they know about their complex.

Two areas we all have the potential to face one day in our lives are tax problems
and/or medical bills. One or the other can be devastating. I had open heart surgery in
July 2006 and if it wasn't for a super medical insurance program, I might have had to
sell our house. The bills were enormous.

Everybody knows about absentee owners so I left it for last. I'd personally use a title
company to do my absentee owner research. Once you have a list, drive by the
properties. Stop at the ones you like and try to talk with the tenant. Ask about recent
repairs and problems. In other words, get a feel for the property and the ones living
there. After all, if you end up owning it, they are the ones who will be making your
mortgage payment.

Consider this article as a starting point to pursue a great opportunity that will bring in
that extra money that we can all use in this current economy. But before you jump
into something, make sure you do your research and have an exact plan to follow that
will bring you to success. You can find more top quality information to create such a
