“Hi, my name is Larry (Last Name), and I noticed you had your house for sale. I’m looking for some investment property in the area, could you tell me a little about your property?”
After they tell you how many bathrooms, about the new kitchen floor they just put down, blah, blah, blah…
“Sounds like a nice house (unless they described a junker), why are you selling?”
At this point you find out how motivated they are. If they’re selling because they need more space, that probably aint the deal for you.
“Will you move even if you don’t get the house sold?”
If their answer is that they’ll just stay there, or they have to have that one cashed out in order to quaulify for their new build, then that probably ain’t the deal for you.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
