As I had mentioned in a post earlier this week, I am going to be sending some letters to out of state owners. It’s a way for me to get a few more letters out there in hopes that I get more calls. I managed to go through my coaches How To and pull out about 120 names and addresses. Those are from 4 towns in my surrounding area.
Unfortunately I do not have a letter to send these people, so yesterday I set out to write a one. For those people who usually get writers block like I do, the best way for me to get going is to throw down random sentences and topics on a page. Sort of like this…
Solve owners problems
close in as little as two weeks
I will be purchasing houses in morris county over the next few months
I am interested in making an offer on a house you own
dealing with a house in another state can be a real head ache
If bills are mounting and you need cash I can help
This really helps me get my mind going. After getting a page worth of random thoughts, I organize them and eliminate stuff that doesn’t fit. After that it becomes much much easier to fill in the gaps and then refine refine refine.
With all of the investors out there getting letters from courses, we are all starting to sound identical. To stick out it is a good idea to create your own letters. This is one I came up with and am going to use
I am currently looking for properties to purchase in the Morris County, NJ area and have come across a few properties that I am interested in. One of those properties is a house you own on [Street Name].
I realize your house might not yet be listed, but I wanted to introduce myself in case you are interested in selling the property. I’ve noticed that you do not currently live in New Jersey and might be holding it as a rental or just having trouble selling it.
Dealing with a house long distance I’m sure you have plenty of stories about uncooperative or needy tenants or the trouble you’ve been through trying to sell it. There are many head aches that can be solved if you could sell the house right now! We would all like to be able to spend more time with our families or pay off some unexpected debts and selling your house to me can make that happen.
Some of the advantages I may be able to offer you over listing with a Sales Agent are:
- I can buy the property in its “As Is” condition.
- You needn’t do any fix up or clean up.
- I will pay all cash and
- I can close the sale very quickly, often thirty days or less.
If you decide to sell the property, there is no reason to complicate the process, run up extra attorney and miscellaneous fees and pay a 6% real estate commission. If you wish to discuss this further, I can be reached at (123) 456-7890
Call me now, you have nothing to lose!
All the best,
123-456-7890P.S. I am a licensed Sales Agent, but will not be acting as one for this transaction. You will pay no fees or commissions when you sell an unlisted property to me.
