Sample letter format to send when find vacant distressed property

2 Replies

I am hoping someone might have some tips/best practices in drafting a letter to send to the last known owner of a vacant distressed property.  Any suggestions or even templates you have found success with would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much.  

not sure if you found what you are looking for, I was searching for the same thing on BP, and I found this:

Dear John Smith,

If you are interested in selling.

and this one which I like better

Dear Eddie,

Recently, I noticed your property at 526 Chapman Ave NW, Roanoke, and I wanted to reach out to you to see if you are interested in selling it.

Please give me a call to discuss the benefits I can provide:

  • -I buy with cash to close quickly! As quick as 7 days!
  • -I convert your unwanted home into much needed cash! Who doesn’t need more cash!
  • -I buy your home as-is! No need to repair or clean it out!
  • -I purchase your home at no cost to you! No commissions or unexpected fees!

Regardless of why you need to sell your property, I would like the opportunity to speak with you about potentially being a solution. I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you're not ready to sell your house now, please keep this letter with your important papers and give me a call when you are ready.

Please call me at ###-###-####.

Thanks for your time.
