It seems like you'd seeking desperate or urgent sellers, let's face it, otherwise they'd sell traditional, so I'd seek out pre-foreclosures, NOD's and possibly divorces.

In today's market, everything sells high and quick, so selling "traditional" is a fast track to cash. I closed one in 5 days not long ago.

Let me see if I've got this right. You are asking real estate professionals for lead generation idea so you can take the business we need.  Who would do that? With the proliferation of the iBuyer agenda (KW has created their own) and existing investor "I buy ugly houses" marketing, helping another take a piece of the pie seems counter productive for an agent.

But, if you suggested you possess solutions that allow a real estate professional to address those homeowner with needs requiring non-traditional methods...that is different because that addresses business we would not have without out-of-the-box remedies. That is less of a one-way street.
So lets start with 3 homeowner situations (name them) for which you have a solution that real estate professionals can not deliver by traditional means.

I am fully aware that it was collaboration between real estate professionals and investors that kept the nation moving forward during the Bank of America cased recession. With the coming foreclosure crisis, it is time to re-establish that collaboration. 
Show me how my business can be helped by helping yours.

Most of us here still have the 2008-2012 playbook.

Lots of fsbos on CL and Z who are willing to take a hit on the price rather than follow the advice of a good agent.

Hi Chris. I guess I don't need to answer as I don't have any good recommendations for you. In our area, anything close to market value is sold in less than 48 hours - most likely with a bidding war.  Anything under market value will have 10+ offers in less than 24 hours.

When I was running my flooring biz, outside of repeats customers/referrals, my own website was my best source of leads and generated very high quality leads.  Many of those jobs were sold before I arrived.


I like what Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets  said. I would focus on your core targets (as he mentioned) and I'd add estates/probate.  Write in depth articles for the things they search for - ones that solved their problems and questions.  Solve their issues and let them know that you can help them. (BTW, I used to do some blogging for someone who flipped homes, so I know it can work).

Also, for me, real estate agents and painters were my best business referral sources. Think about who might be yours.

In 1992 I was spit on, had my tires slashed, windows broken, refused showings and not allowed to present offers.


Because I dared to open a buyer brokerage office to represent only buyers and never sellers.

The traditional agents were so damn worried that I might steal some buyer business that they did everything they could to put us out of business.  

Funny thing is that at the time we had absolutely NO there was nothing to "steal"...not to mention, we were not looking for sellers.

I have learned to seek out my own avenues for leads and never ask or expect a traditional agent to provide any helpful information...

Regardless of your business model, I know there is a niche for you.

I am told that there are sellers out there who are willing to settle for less money on the sale of there house than I can provide for them. I have never met one of those sellers.

We are not fans of lead generation sites, and I think that Roy Kelley gave you a great idea. A.

I received a lot of postcards from investors trying to purchase my home with cash.  I think these investors are sending postcards randomly.  

Personally I think there are too many investors in my area and the competition is too tight.  Almost everyday I receive a phone call or a text message from an investor asking whether I have any off market properties.  These smaller investors are also competing with a larger one such as Offerpad, Orchard, Redfin, Z, and the list goes on.  

Agree with Roy, pay attention to foreclosure and preforeclosure notice or go visit the county courthouse for auction.

I wish you all the best with this. Sellers you describe are likely in a financial crunch but even they want top dollar.

Chris, This week I was sitting in a builder's model home and over in the corner was a brochure holder for Zillow offers.  The builder rep mentioned it was another path for new construction buyers to be able to write contracts on new construction.  The builder will not take offers that are contingent upon selling a home, but will take those that are about completing a home sale.

Perhaps building relationships with some builders gives a new construction buyer what they want:  a guaranteed sale on a guaranteed date.

Sounds like you're an "investor" and not a real estate professional - Realtor, Real Estate Broker or Agent. I'd suggest driving ALL around MEMPHIS and find For Sale By Owner Signs - another approach is to hook up with active agents in your area and weed through the soon to be and expired listings!
