1. absentee landlords

2. probate

3. foreclosures


2. probate - mail to those PR's that reside out of the state of FL (CA, WY, TX, GA, etc..)

If you are talking about real organic leads:

1) I HATE agents. Nothing is wrong with my house but I do not want to list it with an agent and I am willing to accept a paycut not having to deal with these gaaaadamn sinking agents!

2) Mom needs to move in with me. She is getting old

We get these super motivated seller leads ALL-THE-TIME!!
