This post is intended as encouragement to those who might think that this stuff don’t work.
Have you been running ads like “I BUY HOUSES”? and just wait and wait for the phone to ring and at times even check to be sure there is not a misprint on your phone number, or you check to see if your phone has been disconnected? Well I was kind of feeling that same way for over the past 9-10 weeks too. I live in Phx AZ, a very hot market and for some odd reason “No Calls”. Don’t know why but thats life.
Two days ago my cell phone rings and I assume it’s either Mom, Dad, Girlfriend, (You know…The usuals) but no…Guess who?
A Seller!!! and… A VERY MOTIVATED SELLER TO BOOT! practically begging me to take their 2239 square foot home. They had relocated to Missouri and had a house payment there as well, and go on to tell me that this mortgage is current but come 11/01/2000 it will no longer be. (Sounds like good news to me). After further questioning, this deal turned out to be great. A nice front end profit, a monthly cash flow, and a nice back end in place. Got it signed up and in the process of closing as I type.
Next Day: Another guy calls me for his son. Says they are divorcing needs to get out yada yada yada. I won’t go into all the details but get this… As I’m on the Phone with this guy another call on line #2 Guess Who? ANOTHER SELLER!..MOTIVATED SELLER! I made an appointment to see the property because this lady wanted out badly, and I mean badly!! I’ll tell you when you meet these motivated sellers you’ll know it! (The Mentors always said that so believe it) Got this one half signed up as of today, because the almost ex hubby could not be excused from work. He was however very agreeable and says he’ll have the paperwork signed and notorized by morning. I’ll pick that one up and head to the title company then.
That’s it for now, but please…Anybody that may not be getting the calls, hang in there! They’ll come, and at a time you least suspect.
Hope this gives some encouragement to some of you that may be feeling like things aren’t working. They will my friends, they certainly will.
