Was wondering how everyone is building their pipelines these days. There are still lots of foreclosures in my area but it seems folks arent responding to my marketing attempts like in years past. What are some better marketing ideas? I do mostly mailings and sometimes Ill drop something at a house and the occasional phone call.
I know it's not the most time efficient, but I find door knocking to be extremely powerful in this line of work and also building relationships with other business professionals who work with distressed homeowners ( attorneys, investors, etc ).
I do that occasionally if its a house near my area but not nearly as much as I did years ago. It is very time consuming as you said. Whats your take on texting leads? I do get phone numbers and am wondering if sending them a text is a good idea. I'm still wary of the 'do not call' stuff though..
I don't personally text people unless if they filled out a form on one of my websites or unless it's a warm lead. I don't cold text leads as I'm wary for the same reasons as you.
We now have nationwide access to late lists for our short sale clients, no brainer to market to with postcards and door knocking. I'm actually finishing up another book I'm going to be sending out to them as well.
More "exciting" news, I know 4 lenders now in the DC area offering stated income loans again....you know what THAT means!!!
