Welcome to the forum @landholders! Good to have a veteran follower around here. 🙂
Feel free to post your questions here as they come up (because they definitely well). I'm sure we can all help out as you're jumping into the land biz!
Welcome to the forum Bill Tanner! Great to see you jumping right into it.
Welcome Bill Tanner!
I just joined the RETIPSTER forum, but have been selling land since 2017, but took a break from mid-2019 until now. Great to see you taking Seth's course and jumping right into it, I remember that feeling was a bit nerve wracking!
Good luck and LMK if you have any questions.
Trevor Land Thank you Trevor
Bill Tanner hey Bill how did your mailers go a few months ago?
Joshua Thompson Hello there, My first mailer had what I thought was a very good response ..... some hate and a few were quite comical although the serious ones came in after that. Unfortunately I got called away to spend the last ten days that I would have my Mother with me she passed away just as my offers were coming in) But now I'm back in the saddle again. My second mailer of 1800 is going in the box as I am writing this ( Rocket Mail) and I am looking for another county to get the next mailer out in 2-3 weeks I would like to be flooded with deals.
Bill Tanner I'm sorry to hear about your mother, I hope you and the family are doing well. Congratulations on the success of the mailers! I'm glad you're having success during these times. I see you purchased Seth's course, what do you think of it, and have you had the chance to sell any properties from your first mailer yet?
Joshua Thompson yes I did purchase a program, it’s the ReTipster Masterclass program
Bill Tanner I'm not sure if my edit to my last post went out. After posting it I reread your initial post and noticed you did purchase the course. I would love to know what you thought of the course and if you've had the chance to sell any of your properties from your first mailer so far?
Hope all is well man!
Joshua Thompson I have not purchased or sold a property yet, my second mailer went out this past Monday. Have you purchased Seth's program? There is much to learn within his course and this industry.
How many properties have your bought and sold so far?
Bill Tanner I totally agree...still trying to find some space in my brain for the Seller Financing module but I'll figure a way . A looot of information in the Course and all explained exceptionally well.
I sent out my second campaign last week...quite an amazing journey, isn't it? Good luck William!
Arturo Yes it is, I had a couple of leads but access was the biggest problem, It's not that they won't sell it's just that good access seems to be of primary importance (not 20 miles off a main road on two track.
Bill Tanner I haven't purchased the program yet but will next month so I'm able to give it 100% of my time. Once I get started my goal is to hit the ground running like yourself.
Currently I'm reading the forums, listening to podcast, and selecting potential counties.
Bill Tanner my first campaign was 1600 pieces and I got total 8 responses: 3 super annoyed, 2 polite "You're a nice guy but I wil sell only for N times what you ask" (and the properties were not worth even the half of what they were asking), 1 pretty motivated owner but landlocked, and the other 2 theoretically still to be determined but truth is that I don't think I'll close on them for a bunch of reasons (title issues, almost 0 profit etc).
As I also think that I didn't price all of them correctly, I decided for my second campaign (other 1600 pieces) to opt for a more granular approach to determine my offers and, still so, i think I could have done better. I'm learning, aren't I? ...let's see what comes out this time
Keep in touch Man and let me know how it goes!! You can find me on fb as Arturo Paturzo if you want (I'm on Retipster facebook group too)
