Hi Leon, targeted mailing lists have worked very well for us, but you’ve got to ‘profile’ the typical seller that you’ve been getting deals from.
Is that seller usually: old? young? certain race? nationality? income level? have xx kids? own xx cars?
Is house usually: paid for? built in years xxx-yyy? 2br? 3br? located in neighborhoods xxx and yyy?
So you’ve got to profile the past deals you’ve done looking for a pattern, or if you haven’t done that many deals yet look for the obvious (ie if you’re flipping, look for old homes in decent or revitalizing neighborhoods).
Then call a list broker and buy that list (yes, it’s scary how specific you can get when ordering a list).
Best of success,
