Let’s be clear here . . . I maintain it’s not so much what you say, it’s that you said it that matters.
So, don’t get hung up on some “million dollar” ad or anything like that.
I send short, friendly messages that people eager to sell seem to respond to.
My current postcard reads:
"I noticed your property the other day and thought I?d get in touch to see if you?re interested in selling. I?m looking for a good buy on a good property in the area, and figured it couldn?t hurt to ask.
If you?re thinking about selling (even just a little bit), give me a call and let’s see if we can put an offer together that makes sense for the both of us."
Notes and letters to tired landlords are on a similar theme.
