Each of the sites would send him on jobs doing really simple work.

It is pretty unlikely that the readers of this blog will reach that level of success however we can learn from Mr. Walton's example. Going where they ain't as real estate investors. As real estate investment scouts we are looking to find properties that few people know about. The vacant house in the beautiful neighborhood that has been vacant for months.
