DFW wholesalers/investors and direct mail

7 Replies

I hope to pick the brains of seasoned investors here in the DFW (Dallas - Ft. Worth) area regarding marketing to out-of-state absentee owners. I've admittedly been reading on the subject of wholesaling for quite a while. My question is this: those of you who have successfully sent direct mail, received a response, got a contact, and subsequently completed your chosen exit strategy - what are some of the reasons the sellers were willing to sell? A lot of inherited properties? People needing less debt on credit reports? Bad tenants? Up in age? Unable to afford repairs on the property? I'm looking forward to this insight! Erin
this was supposed to read: .... got a contract...

I've heard multiple times that the divorce list is the best use of marketing dollars. You deal with a lot of very sad stories, but the response rate/close rate I'm told is far superior. 

@Erin Elam Tired landlord and inherited property tend to cover a pretty good percentage of the deals I've done.

 Awesome information! I've gotten a list from US Probate Leads in the past? Have you used them before,  for leads?

 Thank you for this gem! Yes I would imagine that to be so.  Do you use a particular source for these leads?
