I’ve been getting a very good response rate over the past month with my out of state owners mailings. The response rate has been around 15% to 20%, I don’t have an exact figure yet but I will once I update my database with the recent round of calls I got last week. Once I do that I’ll post some more stats on how things are going.
In the mean time I wanted to share some of the voice mail responses that I’ve gotten. I chose a 3 of them from the past 2 weeks that I either found interesting or funny.
This first one is just a lady who doesn’t sound motivated at all and is just trying to feel me out I think. It’s also a condo that I’m not very interested in at the moment.[audio:http://strugglinginvestor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/call-1.mp3|titles=Real Estate Investing Seller voicemail #1]
This next one is a typical call that I get. The gentleman is trying to find out what we are about and whether I am a company or an individual who wants to buy his property. This guy also thanks me for the hand written letter, which is good because I printed the letter out on my computer using my hand written font.[audio:http://strugglinginvestor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/oos-voicemail-2.mp3|titles=oos voicemail-2]
This last one is from a guy who seems a bit untrusting of my letter. It’s a short message but you’ll hear what I mean after you have a listen…[audio:http://strugglinginvestor.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/oos-voicemail-3-scam.mp3|titles=oos voicemail-3-scam]
Everyone who calls and leaves a message or even hangs up gets a call back. Everyone except for people wondering what kind of scam I’m running. So far everyone that has called from my out-of-state owner letters has left a message on my voicemail, there have been no hangups. I use a Google voice number and just a short message saying that if they are calling about a house they are looking to sell, leave a message with a description of the house.
