Transactional real estate engineers can start doing business as long as they get to talk to sellers. As soon as a lead comes in, get hold of the seller. The best way to do it is over the phone. If you let time go by or wait for them to answer a text message, they might not see it, change their mind, or even lose interest.
In this episode, Blair and Jeff share their wisdom on different real estate business topics. Learn how to get sellers on the phone. Discover how to estimate the purchase amount for a cash purchase, how to respond to buyers wanting to know what the process of rent-to-own is, and the process and document signatures needed when assigning the deed at closing. Find out what options you have for different deals and their best exit strategies.
Gain skills on merging a separate tracking lead document with Mojo so one automatically updates the other. Finally, find different main lead sources for your VA to work on, the meaning of HUD, and a hot deal involving a 3X per month rental property.
