I've been sending out hand written yellow letters from my driving for dollars and just had my first few come back. Two reasons: "Return to sender vacant unable to forward" and"Return to sender not deliverable as addressed unable to forward"
I mail to both the mailing address and the physical address. My question is there somewhere I can find an updated address or are these dead leads besides leaving a door hanger?
@Michael Quarles Thank You!
@Ben G. I actually met an investor that will partner on these. I pass him the return mailer, he skip traces and if he's able to make a deal he splits it 50/50
I find the return to sender letters to be the best leads! The mailperson writes VAC on letter
It tells me the property is vacant
I love vacant properties
I then research the previous homeowner anyway I can - google obituaries, family members, spokeo, whitepages.
Finding out what is going on with the property gets me a few steps ahead of other investors.
@Adrian Smude that's a pretty neat deal. I'd like a local partner to work my returned mail leads. They're piling up!
@Sybil Ehninger-High I met him at a REIA meet up.
