Cold-calling: the buyer’s task most of us have come to loathe. However, that’s not to say it still isn’t an important part of building your real estate investment portfolio. And thanks to the DealMachine’s cold calling app, it’s easier than ever to get in touch with a potential seller.
First, find a property you think you could garner a worthwhile deal form. Then, open the DealMachine App and find the house you’re looking at. (The app uses your GPS coordinates to hone in on the likely property.) After you’ve selected the home, it’ll show the seller’s information and ways to contact them.
In many cases, either the homeowner’s mobile or landline number is publicly tied with the home, allowing you to contact them. If they don’t answer on the first ring, leave a voicemails explaining your wholesale business and interest in purchasing, or at least seeing the home. To really drive home the message that you're interested in the property, send them a postcard with your pertinent information.
However, it’s important you don’t come across as a telemarketer or debt collector, as the seller is likely not to call back if they believe you are any one of those. Immediately tell them your name and the reason for calling within the first fifteen seconds to better your odds at getting a response. Explore scripts for real estate cold calling.
