Re: a Good Vacant Property Letter to Send to owners

Does anyone have a good Vacant Property Letter to send to
homeowners with vacant properties?

Here is what I start off with. Other communications follow, of course.

Re: <Address 1>, ,


Is there any chance that you would be interested in selling the property at <Address 1>? I am a full-time real estate investor looking for a house to buy. I promise that I am not here to waste your time.

Please note: I am NOT an agent looking for a listing…I am a qualified BUYER who lives in the area.

Some of the benefits of selling the house to me compared to listing with a Realtor are:

• Quick Closing: I generally pay cash, so I can close in 7 to 10 days.

• No Repairs: It does not matter to me if the house needs repairs. My offer will be to buy the house as-is, no matter what its condition.

• No Open Houses: You will not have to get the house ready for showings, and you will not have to deal with strangers coming in and out of the house.

• No Commission, No Fees: Because there is no Realtor involved, you will not pay a commission or fee. This saves you thousands of dollars.

• No Closing Costs: That’s right…I will pay all closing costs.

I live in the area, so I can see the house whenever it is most convenient. Just get in touch with me using whatever method is easiest for you.

My phone number is (770) 265-8316. You can call any day, any time, even at 11 o’clock at night. You can also send an email to I will respond very quickly. Another option is to visit my Web site at and fill out the short form. I will call you back right away.

Remember: quick closing, no repairs, no open houses, no commission, no fees, and no closing costs. You can sell that house in days without spending one penny, so contact me today.

Thank you,


P.S. To receive an offer on your house today, call me on (770) 265-8316 or visit

I would dump: I promise that I am not here to waste your time.

Other than that it looks good. I like the website URL, that’s a nice catchy to the point name. Form to submit a home is good too, I have something similar on my own sites.

I should have added that I use the local number when the owner resides in state. If they live elsewhere, I use my toll-free (888) PAUL PAYS.

Thats a great letter Paul. How have some of your direct mailings turned out?

I also do like the name of your website too. It is great for branding your name in your town.

I am looking to change the name of my business / website. When I first started out I used something too corporate etc.

Now I am looking to use my name in the company. Your website gave me some ideas. Thanks buddy :slight_smile:


Mailings like that are hard to analyze right away. I certainly get a few calls from people who are what I’m looking for each time.

(My list requirements are: house more than 20 years old, mortgage more than 10 years old, owner more than 40 years old.)

On top of the good calls, though, I get an amazing number of “I just wanted to thank you for your nice letter” calls from little old ladies. They don’t want to sell their house, mind you, but they sure do appreciate the nice letter.

Go figure…and no, they are not being sarcastic.

However, a favorable impression like that is OK with me. I usually ask that they just hang on to the letter in case they ever decide to sell. And it has happened where one of my recipients passes away, then the son calls me and says, “My mother passed, and I was going through her papers…you wanna buy this place?”

So, results from these mailings can take months, even years, to materialize.
