    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a property in a specirfic area (Breakfast Point) and have been browsing realestate.com.au and talking to all the local agents - are there any other ways to find properties?

    I assume all agents use realestate.com.au - if not, are there other websites I should be checking?

    Has anyone done a letterbox drop, and if so, how did you go about organising one, costs etc? I have access to RPData so could easily check which units/complexes are worth targeting and which aren't.

    You just have to get on the local agents database. Call/meet them all explaining what you want and they will put you on their off market alerts. To be honest they are mostly junk / market testing.

    Letter box drops are also good if you are buying owner occupier stock - otherwise if a tenant picks it up they would just bin it.

    You can also network with rental agents in the area as they will have a lead on landlords preparing to sell their stock.
