Finding contact info

5 Replies

I have an absentee list of 1000 names in Montgomery county Maryland. I’m having trouble trying to find the contact info of people on the list. Looking for other ways to find their info. I’m fairly new at wholesaling. My plan is to cold call. Please leave suggestions or comments. Thank you BP community!

 These lists typically don't come with phone numbers or email addresses. What you want to do is direct mail everyone. Direct mail is one of the most effective marketing routes.

Also worth noting you should become a real estate agent instead of trying to wholesale. Potential legal ramifications aside a wholesaler is a poor mans realtor. Anybody telling you different is trying to sell you a course, a list, a book or coaching of some sort. That list you have, I assume you purchased it & it's probably out of date. If you are a licensed agent you can generate your own list for free any time you like. Just one of the many differences between the two.
