There are various ways to find motivated sellers for houses. Here are some ideas:
Direct mail campaigns: Consider sending direct mail campaigns to homeowners in your target area who have owned their homes for a long time, have a lot of equity in their homes, or have been identified as absentee owners (meaning they do not live in the property).
Online advertising: Use online advertising platforms such as Google AdWords or Facebook Ads to target homeowners in your area who may be motivated to sell.
Networking: Attend local real estate investor meetings, networking events, and seminars to meet other investors and learn about potential opportunities.
Driving for dollars: This involves driving through neighborhoods to look for distressed properties, vacant homes, or homes with overgrown yards. Once you identify a property, you can try to track down the owner and reach out to see if they are interested in selling.
Foreclosure lists: Look for homeowners who are facing foreclosure by checking public records or by subscribing to a foreclosure list service.
Wholesalers: Work with wholesalers who can find motivated sellers and bring deals to you.
Probate leads: Check public records to identify recently deceased property owners and reach out to their heirs to see if they are interested in selling the property.
