I too had a similair experience.
I did call all the ads saying, “We buy houses CASH” and got a few buyers.
I wanted more, so I ran my own ad looking for them.
It read like this:
Do you buy homes for CASH?
If so call
Investors and Wholesalers Welcomed
From that ad I got TONS of calls. Most were tire kickers, and other were guys like me looking for a deal.
But, I also got 7 qualified buyers with CASH and/or credit lines, and the buying criteria they use.
So, now I’m trying to make deals to “flip” to them.
Try it, and tun it for a week or every Sunday for a month. It won’t cost much and when you “flip” just one, the ad payed for itself for years.
Just my $.02
