Hey all, looking for feedback on my VA’s numbers so far month to date. I have 1 VA calling 40 hours a week on a single line dialer. Out of the 8 leads generated so far none are really panning out to be anything. Also 8 leads for 9k dials seems low…maybe not. Any feedback would be appreciated!
@David Dodge wow, good to know… why is that an option in batch still
@David Dodge but you cant do this when doing a mass cold call campaign correct? Nor can you have your VA’s leave personal voicemails each time right? Is this something you do only once you have a warm lead, and just dont leave voicemails for cold calls?
I have a lead who when I called his son answered, telling me his father, the home owner, died last August. He says him and his siblings have no idea what is going on with the house, they don’t even know if it’s been foreclosed on or anything. I called the County Clerks Office, and they said a offer was made yesterday on the property and it is currently in the upset bid stage. They said they can’t give me any other information at this time and the only way to find out more is to go in person. Any advice on how to proceed?
@David Dodge is it not too late to wholesale it since it seems to have gone to auction? Do the owner’s children have any recourse at this point? I’m just not familiar with the process on foreclosures at all
@David Dodge thanks David, this is super helpful
I am debating trying to get a 4-family that just was listed on MLS near me However it's decently pricey and it's listed at $550,000. It needs significant renovation but it's in a pretty desirable area. It's currently renting out for 3 units for $735 and one unit for $800. (Which are WAY below what market rents are going for) - Without renovation it could probably rent each unit for about $1,200 a month - Average rents are going for $1,820 a month for 2br units (which all these 4 units are 2br) - I'd need to take out a HELOC or Home Equity Loan in order to make this work to afford the down payment. - It also says that their Total operating expenses are $16,500 a year which seems very high. - I think this could be a great investment, however unsure because it needs updating and initial price is high... However it's not bad priced for that area. - It's not exactly the BRRR method so maybe it's not a good idea to pursue. Anyone have any suggestions?
Hey all, question on following up with leads. When cold calling if a lead says they are not looking to sell now, but would like you to call back in “3 weeks” “1 month” etc… should I just do as they wish, or have a follow up be more aggressive such as weekly? Getting most of these responses on a pre foreclosure list FYI. Thanks!
I got my first retail MLS Listing live of Friday of this week. As a brand new agent I have to say that it’s quite a bit of work getting everything entered into the MLS, getting all the agreements and disclosures signed, getting photos, and dealing with all the agents. But it’s all going to be worth it when you add up the $/hour for those tasks once it sells and you get paid a commission. The listing went live Friday evening for 199.9K I had issues with the Supra box but got that fixed Saturday morning. Yesterday we had 3 showings and I plan to have 2-3 more today. Here is the listing link: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/438-N-Sappington-Rd-APT-C-Saint-Louis-MO-63122/2057660906_zpid/?utm_campaign=iosappmessage&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=txtshare We already got an offer 5k above asking but put out a notice to all the interested agents that we will be considering offers until 4pm today (that’s the deadline) and will decide by 7pm today who we will choose. This listing is my late mother-in-law’s condo. She passed away about 5 months ago and my wife and her brothers were finally ready to get it listed and sold. Just in time for me being licensed (3-4 weeks ago) Takeaway: Don’t discount your friends & family when it comes to real estate investing and listings. Everyone has to live somewhere and/or has housing needs at some point in their lives. Be the person that helps them when that time comes 💪🏽💪🏽
Sorry to hear about your MIL, good luck on the first official listing as a broker!
Looking for advice on getting water shutoff leads. Both companies in my market said they don’t give out customer information
Hey there, I'm new member based out of Jacksonville, FL. Looking to learn about RE investing. I'm a licensed Fl Agent. I'm here if I can be of help to anyone. Looking forward to learning and sharing with each other.
Hi everyone, I am an investor and broker in Charlotte, NC focused on growing my portfolio. My full-time job is in the tech industry. I currently own 3 properties as long-term rentals and have a goal to reach 100 doors by 30 years old (just turned 25 recently). Short term goal is to have another property by July. For marketing, I recently decided to test out having VA's cold call for me and have been at it for a couple weeks with no deals yet, but am being persistent. I look forward to networking with everyone in here and learning more tips and tricks to continue to build wealth together!
@David Dodge using Mojo dialer, OpenPhone, and just set up Podio for managing leads, was doing it before in Mojo/excel but wasn’t the best process. I found my VA on Facebook directly, she is located in the Philippines
@Marjorie Sulaiman I actually did make the switch to batch dialer last week! I like it a lot better and it’s actually cheaper than Mojo
How often would you redial a list before pulling a new one? 🤙🏼
Today I rented a small, single engine, piper airplane and flew around the island of Maui and took in some amazing views. Check out some of the pics 👇
I am in talks with a seller that is looking to sell a property that had some fire damage that wasn’t covered by his insurance. He started on the renovation but says he needs to sell since he is out of money. Video attached shows current condition of the home. It is set up to be 3bd 1bth 1000 sqft. I could use some help on knowing if there if enough margin in the deal to make money on this as a BRRR or Flip. Property is in NC. I know rehab costs are pretty locally dependent but just looking for a general idea from the group! Purchase price: $65k Comps in area: $130k - $180k Market rents: $1100 - $1300. Near college so could potentially rent by room as well. Rehab: ? $50k? More, less?
@Mike Slane yep pretty much on the money. Here are some pictures
@Mike Slane will do, thank you!

David, watching you navigate Batch looks clean and I like the layout, will be looking into it over Mojo to compare. Curious if you have used both systems before and had any thoughts on the comparison?
@David Dodge perfect, should have waited til I finished to ask! I’ll check it now
Hey everyone! Curious to get your thoughts on best lists to pull for cold calling now. I have a VA working full time only cold calling so would like to get their next batch of leads queued up. Thanks!
