When the housing market is tight, real estate investors need to get creative.

If you’re looking for distressed properties to fix and flip and inventory is low, it’s helpful to think of different types of “relationships” that may lead to opportunities.

Social media posts and mailings only go so far in a sellers market. Making “relationship connections” can be much more productive.

Check out the following lists for inspiration. It’s easy to see how each business or service might provide leads on potential real estate listings, quick sales, run-down properties or motivated sellers.
