The Top Zip Codes for Investment Property in Your Area [2017 1st Quarter]

Reading Time: 4 minutes

The numbers are out! We are excited to release a list of the most popular zip codes for wholesale deals from January to March of 2017.

If you do your own marketing to find investment property, target properties in these zip codes since they are more likely to have motivated sellers and/or properties in disrepair. Both of these conditions can lead to greater discounts and profits for investors like yourself.

We have compiled this data from the hundreds of wholesale deals that were posted to our website over this past quarter.

The Big Picture:

Investor-ready foreclosures

In March, we announced a new type of property deal: investor-ready foreclosures. To find out more about this new type of property, read our press release. Here’s a quick a re-cap:

Foreclosure auctions can be a waste of time, especially for new investors. That’s why we never bothered with offering foreclosures on our site.

But…what about the properties that didn’t sell at auction? The banks want to sell these properties quickly in order to recoup their loss. We see huge opportunity in those properties. We call these deals investor-ready foreclosures. And starting today, you can find them on MyHouseDeals!

There are too many markets to list, so here is a breakdown of where these deals can be found by state:

Here is a percentage breakdown of the types of properties we currently have on the site. The percentage of wholesale deals and investor-ready foreclosures should be more even next quarter.

If you want to see a specific type of property deal, make sure to check your search parameters above the list of properties and select only the property types you want to see.

Going Nationwide

Later in March, we went nationwide! Read more details in our press release.

This created a huge opportunity for you, as an investor. Not only are we offering more deals than ever, we are also offering deals in more locations than ever before.

We currently have more than 10,285 deals and leads available on the website, with over $566,775,000 in equity…

To give you an idea on the increased opportunities, check out the heat maps below. The first one is from the last quarter of 2016, and the next one is our most recent quarter since going nationwide, and adding investor-ready foreclosures.

The last quarter of 2016 is Q3, not Q4, since Q4 was combined with the entire year to create an annual report
