99% of sellers are going to say no to you the first time you make an offer to them. They just want to sell their house, and your lease option looks like it could complicate their life. What you’re looking for is a motivated seller, and finding one is why I’m telling you to stop quitting!
If you’re in this business saying that you’re going to send a thousand postcards “Just to see if it works”. No! For crying out loud, give it six months. Give it some time. It is not an overnight success kind of job.
In a 12 month period, we analyzed the 58 deals that we did. 4 of these deals were an immediate yes. 54 of these deals came from an average of 5-6 follow ups. That means months of time dedicated to following up.If following up is the most important thing you can do in real estate, if it netted us 54 extra deals, then how can you possibly follow up if you only give yourself a month to succeed?
I get it; money might be tight right now. If you’re looking for ways to find success through the recession, my book Recession Proof Real Estate Investing is going to help you navigate this downturn. For $7, this PDF can be downloaded immediately and you can start putting into place systems that will help you find sellers, make offers, and build your real estate empire.
Listen and learn:
- Out of 58 deals we did over 12 months, 54 of them came from the follow up.
- How often should you be following up?
- If you want to do real estate full time, you have to be committed to it.
