My situation is different than most folks in the business. My “day” is as a very well compensated consultant so I don’t seek out a lot of mortgage business. Most comes to me.
So I will bounce some ideas off of you and you can try find what works for you.
Word of mouth will always be your best or worst advertising. If you put someone in a house who was turned down by others that will bring you business. But how do you get the first one in a house.
Try calling some of the agents who work in th blue collar areas. Ask if they have customers who almost qualify. Work with them and find a program that will work. Soon that agent will be bringing you loans.
Another idea write up a flyer and distibute to FSBO sellers in your area. Give each one a few flyers then when people look at the house have them give out your flyer.
I hope that these things help.
