Seth Williams I love to find counties that their assessments are way below market and people will just ask for that or even a little less!
First direct mail campaign and a 10% response rate?!
Daniel Crawford I got mine through agentpro247 and then used click2mail to mail them out.
That’s definitely inspiring as I am getting ready to send out my first direct mail campaign. Where did you obtain the purchase price information?
Zachary Prince Awesome! What state are you working in?
Eric Boyer The purchase price was a filter on on agent pro. I was trying to find an option for inheritance but couldn't find one so I thought this was my best bet.
And I'm in Massachusetts. We have to use a real estate attorney as well which is why my card said cash but i pushed the wholesale hard and offered much more.
Also it took 2 days of calling to find a lawyer who deals with or even knows what wholesaling is.
Zachary Prince That’s great! I’m just north of you in NH. I’ll have to keep picking your brain. Congratulations and keep it up!
Eric Boyer that's ironic I actually just found an attorney who deals with wholesale in Mass and NH if your having trouble finding one out there.
Congratulations on you awesome success!
Did you offer a specific price with you initial mailing?
Joel Amyx no I didn't not. I just offered to pay cash and pushed very hard for wholesaling the properties I didn't think were smart to purchase.
Congrats Zachary Prince!
I also have not been doing blind offers (just yellow letters, so far). My third mailer just started arriving in people's mailboxes over the last 2 days so it's too early to tell, but on the first two rounds I had around a 10% response rate, as well, among first-time recipients. I re-mailed the first list, and then some, on my second mailer, and didn't see as much response from repeats (perhaps not surprisingly, although I've heard people say that some mail campaigns start showing better results after 3 or more mail pieces, so I don't know).
Just so I understand, in your approach to wholesaling some of the deals, are you putting those under a purchase contract and then assigning the contract to another buyer before closing, or are you putting them under an option contract, or something else?

How are you structuring your wholesale contract? Are you offering it to other investors for a cut?
