Last night in the chat room, Jackie from Dallas gave a tip on finding “motivated sellers”.
Thanks Jackie! you ARE Great!!
anyway,she advised going to the local roofing companies. They often times will drive around after the anow clears and write down homes that need a new roof. They then market there services to these homes.
And, the good news is that, many times, the home owner cannot afford a new roof and wants to sell.
Well, I called two local comapnies today, and also talked to a friend who does roofing. She was right! (as usual).
They do make this kind of list, and were eager to pass it along. I mentioned compensation, and we will pay $40 to one company for there list, and the other simply wants us to allow them “First crack” and/or referal to work in these homes. (I only agreed IF they would meet or beat other area companies prices and estimates…always ask, it works.)
My friend said that he’d just GIVE me his little list, because, I could “copy” it for him on my paper and machine. (that is cheap!!)
So, thanks Jackie, and try this folks. It just may work!
