Who is behind all these blind phone calls asking if I want to sell my house? Bigger pockets, Lifestyles Unlimited, other? It’s the most annoying and undoubtedly least effective way I can imagine to prospect for real estate deals.
Neither of the two firms you mentioned are telemarketers. Wholesalers are known for heavily working ringless voicemail and cold calling current landlords. It is very simple to find the owner's info online. I gets calls daily. Shoot I don't even answer my phone anymore unless it is someone I know calling.
"Who is behind all these blind phone calls asking if I want to sell my house?"
Dunno, call them back. Make it sound like you're an idiot that wants to give his house away.
Have them on the string as long as you can. Then turn them into your state's REA.
Of course, they might be the only ones who know where your body is :)
Disclosure: Executive Vice President of Lifestyles Unlimited
@Steven Ferguson Lifestyles Unlimited is a real estate education and mentoring company. Lifestyles Realty companies serve Lifestyles Unlimited members but they do not do mail, text or phone call campaigns for properties. Anyone who owns a property and has a different mailing address is getting bombarded with calls, text and old fashioned mail offers to buy. These usually come from wholesalers looking to pick up distressed properties. There are classes out there teaching wholesalers how to find this information and suggesting techniques for grabbing attention. These have been around a REALLY long time - the roadside "bandit" signs were used before technology allowed more intrusive techniques. I answer and let them know my house is in tip top shape and I am not selling, then ask them to take me off their list. It costs them time and money to market to me so most will remove me. If they do not, I block their number. I kind of like the post cards with a recent picture of my property because I am a remote owner so I get several pictures a year to verify my residents are caring for the property. Hope this helps, I know it is frustrating.
