It’s awesome because once you know the formula of how to do this, its just do it again and keep going and going and see how you can grow it.Brian Rockwell

I always get excited when I get to do these types of CarrotCasts when I bring on a client of ours who has a great, great story. And the client that I’m bringing on in this episode is Brian Rockwell. This CarrotCast is pretty compelling and hopefully, it’s going to speak to everyone about patience and swift and focused execution when you decide to make things happen.

He didn’t use the excuses of, “There’s way too much competition.” He didn’t use the excuses of, “I already see Carrot sites everywhere.” He didn’t use any excuses of “I’ve never done a deal.” He went out there, executed according to what we laid out, our plan for him. He executed it. He carved out time to study. He carved out time to implement, he carved out a budget, and he did $80,000 in wholesale fees in March.

You’re also going to be able to learn how he’s executed like mad as a newer investor, not having all the advantages that you do with experience and credibility and how he went after and executed with one marketing plan, on one way of getting clients now with building up momentum over the long term with another way of getting clients, and how he’s turning those into profits.

He eliminated emotion from his wholesaling real estate decisions by setting a solid marketing budget that is 100% based off of data and math. Magically that turned into amazing results for him.

You’re going to love his story, how he went from junior high teacher and baseball coach, and a 12-year journey on starting being a real estate investor from thinking about it to taking the action on it.

100 Ways to Create Real Estate Leads And Convert Them To Sales

Real Estate Leads

100 Ways to Create Real Estate Leads And Convert Them To Sales

How effective is your marketing? Whether buying, selling, or investing in real estate, marketing is essential to your success.

As an investor, the key fundamental element in the first level of your real estate investing business is creating systematic and consistent lead generation. If you are not focused on lead generation, you do not have a business, you have a hobby or a dream.

Your commitment to marketing is critical.  There are many different ways to create leads and here are about 100:

Accountants and CPA Firms:

  • They have clients with financial problems where an investor can be of help.

Advertising: Never stop. Use simple ads with a USP, Unique Selling Proposition: Quick Closing, All Cash etc., Buy Houses Ads, Newspapers, Flyers.

Attorneys: Attorneys know when people need money, often to pay their fees!  Not just probate but divorce, family law and real estate attorneys.

Auctions: Do your homework in advance. Auctions move very fast and a single mistake can be costly. Visit your local auction a few times to just observe. Know values and repair costs before bidding.

  • Foreclosure: Very risky, not for the newbie
  • Sheriff Sale: Same as Foreclosure
  • IRS Sales

Apparel with Logos: Hats, T-Shirts, Golf Shirts, Hand Bags

Appraisers: Often know what is, or is going to be, for sale

Bandit Signs: Check your local sign ordinances. Some places have no issue with them others do.

  • We Buy Houses
  • Stop Foreclosure

Bird Dogs:These people can be very valuable to your business. It is important to know your local laws about compensating unlicensed people.

“Blue Tarp” Houses: often blue tarps on roofs

Boarded up windows: or visible disrepair

Business Cards different types: one for seller, one for buyers, one for professionals (banker, attorney, CPA)

Builders Models: Frequently builders will sell a model home at a discount.

Real Estate Leads

Building Inspectors

Car & Truck Loans: Some folks would rather keep the wheels than a roof over their head. Buy here, pay here dealers can be a good lead source.

Car Repos: If the car is going the house isn’t far behind.

Carpet Cleaners: Many of their customers are preparing a house for sale.

Charitable Groups: Frequently receive gifts of real estate, but they’d rather have the cash.

City & County Inspectors: Code violations and red tags. If you develop a reputation of buying distressed properties and improving them, you become an asset to the community.

Classified Ads:

  • For Sale:  Look for Key Words – transferred, motivated, divorce, owner financing
  • Want to Buy
  • For Rent by Owner: Look for burned-out landlords

Condemned Houses: Many counties will provide you a free list.

Consumer Loan Companies: When their loans go bad they are frequently willing to deal rather than foreclose.

Courts: Eviction Filings, Probate Court, Divorce Cases, Tax Liens, Code Violations

Credit Repair Agencies & Counselors: Many times the only way someone can get their spending under control is to sell a house they can no longer afford.

Direct Mail: Pre-Foreclosure Letters, Probate Letters, Out of Town Owners, Post Cards, Bankruptcies, Divorce, Delinquent Taxes, Military Owners

Door Hangers: You can also use pre-printed post-it notes to leave messages at target properties. Be sure to advertise on both sides, you can even sell the back side and recover your advertising cost!

Door Knocking: Distribute flyers and go door-to-door asking residents if they know of anyone planning to move because you’d like to buy a house in their neighborhood!

Drive or walk Neighborhoods: Get to know them well and take notice of changes.

Estate Sales – often the real estate will also be available and perhaps with owner financing

Eviction Court: great place to find landlords

Expired Listings: Connect with an investor friendly Realtor



Family Members: talk about what you do and ask for referrals

Farming Local Areas: Become the local neighborhood expert.

Flyers: Cut your cost in half, print two to a page and distribute: Shopping Centers, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Malls. Put on car windshields or pay someone to do it for you.

Friends: “Do you know anyone who wants to sell?” Most people know 2 people who will be buying or selling a home this year.

FSBO Signs: for sale by owner

Funeral Homes: Can be a good lead source before information on a decedent becomes public.

Garage Sales: Are they moving?

Hair Salons: Lots of talking going on during hair cuts!

Home Builders: Need to sell their buyers houses so they can close on the new place.

HUD Foreclosures:

Internet: Rent Clicks, EBay, Craig’s List, Wholesale Sites, Lead Services, USLeaseOption.com

Insurance Brokers: Policy changes from owner occupant to landlord or vacant house coverage.

Investor Packages: Investor who’s ready to retire and cash out their portfolio. May be able to negotiate seller financing as well as a discount.

Judgments: Check the public record or hire someone to do it for you.

Large Employers: Let them know you buy properties because if they need to transfer an employee, they don’t get stuck carrying the house. This can be good for renting executive properties for short-term transferees, too.

Lenders: Banks / REO’s: – Mortgage Brokers, Private Lenders, Hard Money Lenders

Real Estate Leads

Liened Properties: Mechanics Liens, HOA Liens, Tax Liens

Lis Pendens: Notice of a law suits, usually a foreclosure.

Lists: You can buy lists for anything you want to market to: pre-foreclosures, neighborhoods, properties with no mortgage, etc.

Magnetic Car Signs and Wraps: Check with your auto policy carrier as to whether or not this will affect your coverage. A rider may be required.

Market Bulletin Boards: Grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants

Military Transfers: Military bases provide an excellent transient market for those needing to sell and buy off base housing

Mobile Homes: Get to know park managers. Banks don’t like mobile homes but they can become little cash cows. A special license is required if you’re going to get into the mobile home business.

Moving Companies



Neighborhood Newsletters

Networking: Other Investors, Call We Buy Houses ads & signs, Churches, Public Speaking, Investment Associations, Work, Clubs

Newspaper Carriers: Who see the vacant houses everyday?

Nursing & Retirement Homes: Frequently residents need to sell a house.

Pens: Buy cheap ones and leave them everywhere you go.

Pet Odors: If your home has housed a number of pets we may be the buyer for you.

Pizza Boxes: many sell advertising or sponsorship spots

Postman

Public Speaking: Rotary, Lyons and Kiwanis Clubs, Realtor meetings and other associations

Quit Claim Deeds: Are a sign that something has changed with the property.

Radio Ads or Show

Real Estate Agents

Referrals

Relocations: Great for Subject-to or buying on lease option

Rent Credit: Trade rent credit for a down payment

Rental Agents & Property Managers: Let them know you want to buy and also find a local manager. You buy, they manage…win/win!!

Retirees: A growing population with free and clear homes. Excellent prospects for seller financing.

Section 8 Landlords: Each county maintains a list

Short Sales

Social Media: A new way to get your message out: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube

Structural Damage: Once you know what you’re doing, you can buy at a rock bottom pricing.

Tax Deed Sale Properties: These do not come with title insurance so do your home work.

Tax Lien Certificate Properties

Termite & Pest Control Companies: Write a check and the termites die. Write another check and replace the damaged wood. May find great deals.

Title Companies: Not all transactions close like they are supposed to. Let the title companies know you can help in a pinch, for the right price.

Trading Up: Trade your newly renovated property at retail for a property down the block that you can buy wholesale. Try a sign that says “Will Take Your House In Trade”

TV and Radio: Cable companies may have community service spots for free.

Vacant Properties – look for tall grass and neglected houses




Web Sites

Wholesaler Lists: A good wholesaler can find you multiple properties.

Withdrawn MLS Listings: Easy to get from a friendly real estate agent.

Real Estate Leads

As you can see, there is no shortage of ways to generate leads.

To start, pick ten ways for consistent lead generation and focus on those.  In the beginning of our investing career, we walked neighborhoods with flyers and put magnetic signs on our cars. Why? Inexpensive and effective! Not glorious marketing techniques but we got leads and our very first seller called from our magnetic car signs!

The number one common element of failures in a real estate investing business is not treating it like a business. And, the most important  step to establish in ANY new business is LEAD GENERATION!  Without customers, there is no business.

Whether you’re looking for foreclosures, REO’s, owner-finance, HUD, wholesale, free & clear, rentals, fixer uppers, spread investing, etc, finding them all revolves around having leads. Get busy and NEVER EVER stop marketing for leads!

Anything you’ve tried that’s not on my list?

A seminar on home buying is an effective tool for personalized marketing to a broad audience in a short period of time.

Federal Fair Housing Laws: The Department of Housing and Urban Development offers this section on their website about fair housing laws which could be handy for landlords to be aware of.

 

Quickbooks is pretty much the standard for small business accounting software and if you don’t have a copy you may want to look into it and make sure you keep your books in order from the start.

 

Housing Data And Research

MarketTimingMaster.com: Ken Wade has developed an incredible system that takes some technical trading principles and applies them to real estate markets across the country.  This approach is the closest thing I’ve seen to a crystal ball in terms of which markets to invest in and can DRAMATICALLY improve your long-term results.  Needless to say, I am impressed with this site.

 

Yahoo Real Estate offers some very nice tools but my favorite section is probably the Neighborhood Info which includes details of schools in the area and demographic data that is of interest to investors.
The National Association of Realtors offers some handy statistics and research data from this page on their site.
HendricksPartners.com: Hendricks & Partners also has some free market reports available in the Research Center on their website.

DQNews.com is somewhat like a blog and is a good way to keep up-to-date with market trends.  DataQuick are also well regarded for their paid research services at dataquick.com
Rich Dad’s Real Estate Evaluator: While I prefer that people create their own analysis spreadsheets so they can truly understand the numbers I will recommend any tool that encourages investors to do a more thorough financial evaluation of a deal.
Rentometer.com have a nice little tool for conducting rental comps to check how much you can expect to be charging in rent.

 

Real Estate Resources

HUDuser.org is the website of HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research and it is here that HUD provides the data relating to Fair Market Rents that they establish for the Section 8 program each year.  You can use this data as a benchmark especially if you rent to Section 8 tenants.

 

Comps

These sites can be very handy for getting some rough data for initial analyses of deals but do not replace a proper appraisal of a property with such data especially when you need to know the after repair value.

 

Zillow.com: Zillow has come along and revolutionized the way we get comparables.  It is a powerful resource for getting “Zestimates” on the value of a home and for conducting your comps.

The US Department of Agriculture makes it’s foreclosure properties available from this site.
HUD.gov: HUD foreclosures (Department of Housing and Urban Development) are listed on their website but you must then contact the local real estate agent to submit a bid on the property.

Technology

Most of the websites that examine the latest technologies for real estate revolve around the marketing side of things and as such are targeted at realtors rather than real estate investors.  However, marketing is just as relevant to investors and these two sites are worth following the most for investors.

Section 8

Section 8 is a government subsidized rental program by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  While you may get slightly lower rent with such tenants there is a huge amount of demand and you don’t have the same hassles chasing your rent checks since they are coming from the government.  Back in the research section there is a link to HUD’s Fair Market rents to get an indication of your projected income.

GoSection8.com allows you to list your properties for Section 8 tenants to find.
