Hello Bigger Pockets Community,
I am looking to close my first wholesale deal here in Yakima Washington. I have a small list of buyers. A list of 50 properties I created from driving for dollars and a list of 15 properties that are for sale by owner. I have the names of all the owners. I am going to send out my first round of hand written letters. There has been a lot of debate about what to or not to say in these letters. Would some of you members mind sharing with me what has worked for you in your direct mail campaigns?
I am using the county records to find the home owners names now, but am unsure how to find where there residential address is if mail is to get returned to me. in that situation how do I set up for the mail to be returned to me. Also does anyone have a suggestions on direct mail services?
Lastly, I would love to meet other individuals real-estate involved individuals in Yakima!
Thanks for any information that the community can provide!
@Noah Evans if mail gets returned to you, you can skip trace the returned mail to see if you can find the owner. I'd encourage you to put Address Service Requested on the mail you send. You'll get a postcard back from the United States Postal Service with the updated address if it is available.
Thank you for your insightful comment. I have set a side a budget to do 5 different pieces of mail over a time period of 2 months to my "A" target area. Could you provide or point me in a direction of some examples of direct mail campaigns that have worked in the past?
