THAT is Exactly the way I learned to deal with sellers, both FSBO’s and people who are in foreclosure.
It was tough, for me to learn but I learned it. I got to the point where I concidered it “just practice”, walking up to a stranger’s door and talking to them.
But believe me, there is NO RISK!
SELLERS DO NOT BITE!! LOL
Think of it as simply going over to a friends house and knocking on their door to talk to them… Thats All… Don’t expect anything. Though you may score. (A bonus)
While there, at there door, LISTEN! To yourself and to the seller, LEARN, take your time, no hurry, make a friend, be comfortable, you are helping the seller.
The more you “practice” the better you will get. Get out there and practice!
Remember, you are learning, No Presure and … No Biteing.
Good Luck! From all of us.
I wish someone had told me this twentyfive years ago.
