Probate Monday (On Wednesday): More Letters Going Out

Scott Costello All, Blog, Lead Tracker 6 Comments

I pushed probate Monday off this week until Wednesday because I wanted to finish up and post the videos for my Lead Tracking program demonstration.  Last week was a pretty busy week, but I don’t really have anything to show for it.  Kinda frustrating to have your phone ring and come up with nothing. For those that think I don’t get down or have my doubts about investing in probate properties, I do.  It’s only natural to ride the roller …

Last week was a long week and unfortunately I didn’t get much real estate related stuff accomplished.  Memorial day weekend ended with my wife getting some severe side pain and going to the emergency room.  She could not get into a comfortable position.  Luckily they took her in quickly and after trying two separate pain killers, they gave her morphine which finally took the edge off her pain.  2 hours later they found she had kidney stones.  Needless to say …

So far here are the items that I will be including in the first …

I apologize for the lack of any real updates on how my probate investing has been going.  I’ve continued to send out my mailers and have been getting calls, but non have been motivated or really willing to sell at this time.  Instead of writing the same old thing every week about sending out mailers and talking about non motivated callers I’ve been trying to break down every single aspect of what I’ve been going through (talking with callers, keeping …

Probate Monday: Offering Options

The past couple weeks have been pretty slow with calls, in fact I just got my first 3 calls in the last 2 weeks today.  Unfortunately two of the calls told me to take them off the list as they either did not own the house or did not want to sell the house.  The other caller wanted to know how I knew the house was for sale since they just inherited it.  I will call this person back tomorrow …
