Motivated Seller Lists for South Carolina

Real Estate investors have long depended on Absentee Owner Mailing Lists to find seller leads. These lists are compiled using public records – usually the county registry of deeds and assessor’s office. Unfortunately, a recent ruling in SC prohibits using the public record for marketing purposes and the Absentee Owner Lists are no longer available in the state.

Fortunately, there are new Motivated Owner-Occupied Seller Lists available for the entire country, including South Carolina and Kansas (another state where this isn’t available) These are Low Financial Stability Score List (FSS) and Seniors with Long-Time Ownership

These don’t rely on the public record so there are no restrictions on real estate investor’s direct mail programs. Here are details on the recommended real estate mailing lists for both.

Low Financial Stability Score List (FSS)

  • Homeowners who are likely to be struggling financially (see below)
  • Owner Occupied and Absentee
  • Owner age 40-89
  • Eliminate owners known to have purchased less than 5 years ago
  • Single family home
  • Eliminate known low equity homes
  • Specify Home value for your area

List will include the owner’s name, mailing address, property address, age, Loan to Value range and home value range

Seniors with Long-Time Ownership

Seniors are often ready to downsize or transition

  • Owner Occupied
  • Owner age 60-89
  • 15+ year residence
  • Single family home
  • Eliminate known low equity homes
  • Specify Home value for your area

The list will contain the owner’s name, mailing address, property address, home value range and LTV range

Both these categories have additional advantages in that they probably don’t haven’t been updated and may have deferred maintenance. They won’t be expecting the same money as their neighbors with the shiny new kitchen and fresh paint.
