Has anyone out there ever tried direct email to contact motivated sellers? If so, what has been your experience? I sent out about 20 and go quick responses from 4 or 5. I feel like people check their emails more than their mailboxes these days but not sure how much of a sealer it is yet. Thoughts?
I can't answer your question but I am curious to see if anyone else has.
How did you locate the sellers and what did you send out if you don't mind me asking?
You can use listsource or agentpro247 to search and filter mail lists based on a multitude of criteria; absentee owners, equity, LTV, date of last sale etc. It'll give you an Excel spreadsheet with all the property info and mail information. You can write mailers out by hand (not much fun!) or import the list into Word via mail merge, and it will insert information where you tell it to.
I just switched from post cards (1 wholesale deal out of 200+ post cards) to letters (Handwritten font, white notebook paper, #10 envelope, stamps, regular mail) so we'll see how the response to that goes!
@Sean McCrory Beenverified is the program i use to find emails and extra info. Hope that helps.
@Blake NeeSmith Are you still having success using beenverified to contact motivated sellers? Have you found any other ways to find email addresses of sellers?
