Let me know what you guys think about this. Or if anybody else uses something different
Masoning, I think that the store sign on the main street touting that “We Buy houses” is a great strategy. I’m sure that the phone will be ringing consistently with motivated home sellers. If I was going to keep putting out We Buy Houses signs, then I would include the word Ugly in the text, because this weeds out the people with nice homes to sell that aren’t motivated. Ugly houses have the most equity, typically.
I think you really need to give a person who sees your sign motivation to call, you need to make them want to take the time to write your phone number, You need what the previous post stated…something like “We Buy Houses/All Cash/Fast Settlement” They need to know how you are going to benefit them, that its worth their time to write your number and call you because you offer what they want.
I wouldn’t really wanna call “Home Solutions Consultants” or “Real Estate Investment Specialists”. The average motivated seller would probably have no idea what those things are.
So, even though “We Buy Houses” is played out and many folks ignore the signs, since it says precisely what you do, when a motivated seller sees one of those signs rights when he realizes she needs to sell before something in her life explodes, chances are, she’ll call you up.
You can even use some sort of variation like “Lisa Buys Houses” to pique their interest, especially since folks are more likely to call a chick than a dude…
Lately I have seen people putting up a break down of costs of an investment property. Its just a sign and it’s laid out like this
House - $40,000
Repairs - $20,000
Value - $110,000
I know this is not what you want to put up for leads per say but it can help to get interested parties. It may also lead to some saying “I’m not looking to buy but I’m looking to sell, can you help me with that?” Little bit of a stretch but I’ve seen crazier things happen. Just a suggestion :biggrin
