Owners in distress - Posted by fuzzlekins

Hi there Fuzzlekins,

You are correct the response rate is low, because you have to keep re-mailing to them. It’s a numbers game. You and I know that they are in distress but they don’t see things the way we do. This is their home and they hold out for hope that something will happen that will allow them to keep it. Most people facing foreclosure are not looking to sell, they are looking for a miracle. They are not rational thinking people and you have to sympathize with them. If I didn’t know what I know about real estate investing I’d think just like them. They are just uninformed folks that’s all. Well so much for my ramble on. Just keep at it.

My two cents

I have a list of “owners in distress” for my area. I am planning to send my postcards to them. My postcards say that we buy homes, yada, yada, yada. From what I’ve heard, there is a small success rate with this direct mail method, but honestly, I’m wondering why. This is sort of my guinea pig test, but I really don’t expect to get anything out of it. My market is still pretty hot, so why wouldn’t these people just simply put their houses on the market? Am I missing something obvious here? If I were facing foreclosure, I’d call a realtor, not an investor. (or just stick a sign in my front yard)

Thanks for educating us newbies!:slight_smile:
