It's Amazing. I wud believe aliens visited earth eons ago and bred a race of humans as a workforce than believe what just happened.
The girl at Title called and wanted an address to send my check to.
I'm kinda in shock. It's been exactly a week since the buyer first called me.
I cud hav drove the 100 miles to Bakersfield to get my check but then how cud I brag how I sit on my ass, never leave the house cept to go Walmart, and make 8,000 Frikin Buks?
Let's do it again.

I buy my lists at listgiant, but my last mailings to 2500 absentee owners I only got a few calls and one deal for 2K and that one fell apart b4 closing. But I usually double or triple my money.
This latest deal I got was from networking with another investor.
Seems the market is changing, leveling out or bubble bust?
My fav guru Ron Legrand says we can make money whatever the market is doing.
So, I'm gona hit it again. New post card designs, more bandit signs, try the door hangers again and will recruit more bird dogs.

I'm still in disbelief, the check arrived in my mail box yesterday, that's Monday and the deal closed on Friday. I've had that 8 Grand check laid out on my desk for 24 hrs now. I like looking at it. I got it all propped up, it's so colorful and makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. This deal went down in about 10 days an that includes 2 weekends in the middle. I might get over to the ATM and deposit this check, then another few days for check to clear and then it's, come home to Daddy.

I had a desperate homeowner call me yesterday, he has a nice rehabbed home, squatters and expired listing, he's stuck with payments, he moved w job transfer and I cud feel how desperate he was. He told me the whole story. He owes 170K $1,300 a month in payments. Disgusted with his realtor. Value on home is about 190K But the darn squatters stole sh-t and left the place in a mess and now he cudnt sell it and realtor screwed him and yada yada.
This guy just might be desperate enuf for the Sub To deal, Take over his payments and leave existing loan in place and I bring in a new buyer with 10K payment to me for putting it all together.
I'm salivating thinking about it.

My wholesaling buddy Alan from a nearby town emailed me yesterday and asked if I wanted a 4/2 1400 SF house in Boron California for 35K. I looked at it on Zillow and on Google maps and it looks like a nice house, Zillow says its worth 98,500

Let me paint a picture of Boron California, it's a depressed town near Mohave desert where the desert heat is intense and even the lizards and snakes have left town.

I txted some of my buyers that I had a 4/2 for 45K, one guy replied back, "Let me know when u get the golden gate bridge for 45K.

One lady named Lily wanted more info and she wants it at 45, doing the paperwork this weekend.
How is this possible? An old okie pot head can have a dream life, growing his stuff and flip real estate deals hundreds and thousands of miles away sitting on his ass and sending a few txts.

I've been learning about how our thoughts create our lives. I can now quickly reverse negative thoughts and comments. If ur interested in this concept check out this little book called "Self Talk"
on Amazon for a few buks. All you have to do is consciously change your thoughts.

If there was a little book that cud change your life, wud you read it?

How much mail are you sending. I know we do quite a bit and have pretty much stayed with postcards.  We used to do letters but for us postcards ended up have the best results long term as far as cost per acquisition.

I did a post card mailing to 2,500 absentee's about 6-8 months ago and got no deals, but the mailing b4 that to same list I made 25 grand. So since then I'm not doing any marketing, I have a few bird dogs sending me addresses and I got letters going out to them.

The last deal and this one I'm working on now I got from other wholesalers, they advertise their properties half ass, I inject some exciting words in my ads and it always seems to get results.
My plan is to get the ball rolling early 2019, with more direct mail, bird dogs, bandit signs and door knob hangers.

Postcards should be a fundamental to any marketing, but that's just the start.   

Barney Zick once said that seven hooks needed to be dropped in the water, in order to stay busy. 

At the same time, referral leads can be cultivated from every prospect you come in contact with.  People who need to sell, often know others that need to sell, too.  Why not let the warm leads, lead you to other warm leads?

Javipa,

How much do you send.  I was expecting a bigger number from Randuskie, not that it matters just was guessing.  We send a ton in a few markets especially in WA.  Definitely worth it for us.

Randuskie, you getting moving again it sounds like?  what do you plan on sending in the future on top of everything else you do.

What I do, is not necessarily applicable to you.  It depends on size of your farm, and the number of records that sift out in a given farm. 

For example, in one market I could sift out only about 750 good records.  In another, I could sift out around 7,500.

javipa,
I understand that I was just curious of what others are doing.  Just to see the kind of volume or how targeted/niche members here are.
We do 10k per week per market (a market for us is county level which is pretty wide) which is heavy but we also aren't niching down too much.  It works well for us but if our budget was small we would definitely thin out our lists.

Thats for our main two counties but other states we do very small mailings and are just testing as they are newer.

I'm assuming you're sending 40,000 pieces a month, and not mailing the same list four times a month.

I'm not sure how long you've been doing that, but why are you splitting the mailing into four batches?  Isn't it simpler just to send once a month?

I try not to be too predictable.  I move the mail date around, but I try to time it where the mail reaches the suspect's box early in the week.  It's one of many tweaks I employ to keep the mail from going in the trash (by accident).

What is your gross conversion rate on 40,000 pieces a month?

Man! Nice work on the mailers, but just to mention it, don't be complaining about the cost when you're actually getting calls and deals out of them. I'm in WI and we're sending about 2500 a month (we'd like to kick that up) and our response rate is somewhere between .04% and .08%. Absentee list here doesn't seem to respond AT ALL.

So we're working other angles, glad to hear your success though!
