Hello everyone, I just started looking into wholesaling about 2 weeks ago. I'm currently watching Max Maxwell videos on YouTube and a few others. What are some marketing strategies that I can use in order to be successful starting out? I've been calling people who posted FSBO on Zillow, and an absentee of owner list. I had a few decent responses, but no one truly motivated and of course a few that were angry or just hung the phone up. lol I've also been Driving for dollars, and I found a few houses I just can't get in contact with some of the owners. I'm located in the Fayetteville, NC area
I buy houses in Fayetteville.
You're in a tough market for sure. There are good deals right on the MLS, and the market is getting REALLY tight thanks to tons of new competition over the last ~3 years driving costs up.
that said, if you can find a deal then selling it should be ZERO problem. Lots of buyers around, and many of them will overpay LOL
you can reach me here anytime. my email address is on my website (I can't post it on the forums)
