The best approach I have heard from a local investor in my area goes something like this
"Hi Mr. ______, my name is ________, I understand you may have some foreclosure concerns. I realize you probably have everything worked out, but sometimes things come up at the last minute that you may need help with. I am experienced in the foreclosure process and am able to help with many issues. Hand them a business card and any other materials relevant I would be happy to discuss any possibilities with you if you like" Then either they will start talking with you or you thank them and go on your way, allowing them to decide if they will call you later.
The idea is to help them save face by assuming they have it worked out (many of them will tell you they have it worked out anyway, even if they don’t), and then leave them your number and possibly give them some other reference material, so they can refer to and feel like you are already trying to help them and not steal their house. Either, they will chose to listen to you right then and there or they may call you later. At least this way, they are not put off by an investor trying to “steal” their property.
