This is my first post. I've been reading books and online resources on RE investing, and I want to start taking action! I live in the Bristol , CT area. I'd like to get started wholesaling. I'm not an agent but one idea I came across was to speak to agents about sending me expired listings, promising to refer people who want a new agent to them. Has anyone had any success with this idea?
Welcome to BP. I am a licensed realtor in CT and am based in Plainville/Southington and do a lot of work in Bristol and Hartford County.
If you need some guidance as you get started wholesaling please do not hesitate reaching out. It is not hard for a realtor to set you up with an expired listing search through the MLS.
Thanks Michael, I will need some practical guidance for sure! As a follow up question, I know that this is not difficult to set up on an mls system, but from the point of view of a realtor, is a promise of referrals from the wholesaler enough? Do most realtors charge for expired listings in some way? I think its a practical question because I'm not established yet to where I can point to my track record of success with a realtor.
If thats what you want to do.
Become licensed and become your own agent.
Its not that Realtors are lazy but 15% of them do 90% of the business. I should know, I am a Realtor.
The 15% who are great Realtors will not help you for free. And the remaining 85% who do nothing- Will do nothing for you. Unless you get lucky and find a young new "go-getter" realtor. However, thats VERY hard.
Get your license do it yourself.
