Exclusive Distressed Investment Properties in Southern California

Southern California is a popular destination for investors looking for exclusive properties.

Here are some of the benefits of investing in exclusive distressed properties:

  • Potential for high returns: Distressed properties often sell for a fraction of their market value, which means that there is a lot of potential for profit if you are able to renovate the property and sell it for a profit.
  • Opportunity to create your own vision: When you purchase a distressed property, you have the opportunity to create your own vision for the space.

Investing in exclusive distressed properties can be a great way to build your real estate portfolio.

At Fair Trade Real Estate, we help investors find and buy exclusive properties.

Distressed House

If so, you may want to consider investing in distressed properties. Distressed houses are properties that are in need of repair and renovation. They are often sold for under market value because of their physical condition.

If you are interested in investing in distressed house properties in Southern California, there are a few things you need to do.

  1. You need to find a reputable inventory source who can help you find the right properties for your investment business.
  2. You need to have a plan for financing the purchase and renovation of the property.

At Fair Trade Real Estate, we specialize in helping investors find and purchase distressed properties throughout Southern California.

Transparent Pricing

We believe that transparent pricing is important because when you invest your money in a project there is nothing worse than hidden costs and fees.

If you are looking for a real estate company who has a transparent pricing model, then Fair Trade Real Estate is the right choice for you. We are committed to providing simple out the door pricing for our cash investor clients.  Find out why local real estate investors love the Fair Trade process.


Are you looking for an off-market investment property in Southern California?

Off-market properties are not available from any other source and can offer a number of advantages for a real estate investor. 

Here are some of the benefits of buying off-market properties:

  • Wholesale pricing: When you purchase an off-market distressed property it will need repairs and will be priced at wholesale pricing as opposed to retail pricing.
  • Less competition: There is less competition for off-market properties than competing for deals on the MLS where many of the buyers are looking to buy a home to live in.  The deals Fair Trade provides do not qualify for conventional financing.

Licensed Agent

At Fair Trade Real Estate, we are proud to have a team of licensed agents. While none of the Fair Trade Agents will represent you in a traditional agency relationship, our agents are experts in the real estate industry and are committed to providing consistent inventory for the real estate investors on our marketplace.

Our agents have extensive experience in all aspects of investment real estate, from underwriting, negotiating, and sourcing homes to providing exclusive inventory for investors. 

Fair Trade currently operates out of 7 physical offices all over Southern California.  Our agents are local market experts and will provide you with exclusive inventory for your investment needs.

Title Insurance Provided

At Fair Trade Real Estate, we understand the importance of clear titles. Unlike purchasing homes from the Courthouse steps or at a tax auction, all of the properties that Fair Trade sells have clear, insurable titles, with no liens.  


A title insurance policy is purchased both when we purchase the home and when the property is sold to one of our investors.  This is a cost that Fair Trade takes on as a business and does not pass on to investors.  Discover the Fair Trade difference and why we continue to set the standards that investors expect when buying distressed property. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How can Fair Trade add value to my real estate investment business?

Fair Trade specializes in sourcing under market investment opportunities in California & Texas. We are an additional inventory source for your investment business.

What markets do you service?

We provide investment opportunities in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, San Diego, Ventura Counties, Austin and Houston.

Do the Agents as Fair Trade represent me as an agent? I already have an agent or I am an agent myself.

Although we are licensed agents we do not represent investors in any capacity. You can think of us as a great source of exclusive discounted inventory and you can still list the renovated property with your preferred real estate agent. We want to be the group you come back to when you are ready for your next project.

How do I get access to your inventory of investment properties?

Getting access is easy: Just call us at 949-317-2320 or fill out the form on our landing page to schedule an investor onboarding meeting with one of our agents.

How many deals can I expect to receive from Fair Trade on a monthly basis?

Fair Trade sold over 500 properties to investors in 2023. You can expect to receive 40+ exclusive properties a month in California & Texas.

Will there be additional fees I have to pay on top of my purchase price?

Fair Trade’s clear investor pricing includes escrow fees, title insurance and city and county transfer taxes. As an investor you will be responsible for property taxes, insurance, and any hard money lender associated fees.

This sounds too good to be true...what's the catch?
To be Fair Trade Verified and to get access to our exclusive properties you need to have a virtual or in person investor onboarding with one of our licensed agents. This allows us to understand your investment business and allows us to explain our systems and processes to you

What Our Customers are Saying

Thomas V.

“I was interested in selling…”

I was interested in selling three of my properties. I contacted Fair Trade and they quickly provided me with offers on all three properties. The offers were inline with the market and my requirement to close the transactions quickly. I decided to take all three offers and Fair Trade closed all three deals simultaneously and within the quick closing period that they had promised.



“I have complex transactions…”

I have very complex transactions. Daniel is my go to person and the first person I call. They are amazing to work with! They do what they say, they are honest and reliable. Each deal I have worked with Fair Trade Real Estate has been smooth and successful. I appreciate them and will continue to work with in the future.
