Your idea is a good one. I have gotten several deals that way. There is nothing wrong with the brokers passing you a lead. They can not give you to much info, but name and number never hurt. If anyones concerned, just say you got the info from a friend. There are tons of ways to do this. Dont believe everything you read either. The info will be public soon anyways. Also, you could just tell the brokers to ask the people if they are interested in selling. They usually have no choice other than to sit in the house and wait…which many do.
And, they do call mortgage brokers all the time. I used to do mortgages and got calls everyday like the ones you describe. Good luck and dont let the negativity discourage you!
