The Final Strategy & Lead Source That Will Keep Your Phone Ringing With Motivated Sellers Daily

From: Chris Bruce

Tampa, Florida


So are you ready to hear about the final strategy I use to get leads and more importantly deals from motivated sellers? Well first I want to say if you happened to miss the first part make sure you scroll up and click on the link above. I’m not going to waste to much time I’ll jump right in.

Now I must say I personally been using this strategy in my business for the past 10 months. It’s been working extremely well. I’ve even seen a few posts in a few groups of some of my past students have implemented this and they’ve done a few deals from it. The best thing about it is it doesn’t cost you a dime. You just have to be willing to pick up the phone.

If you guessed COLD CALLING… You’re 100% right.

Now their is a strategic way you must do this, so you don’t come off as a telemarketer. A lot of times homeowners will want to know how you go their phone number. We always tell them we have a research team who identifies vacant homes and finds the phone numbers for us. I have this well written out in my cold call script which you can get access to when you purchase our vacant leads today.

So you may be asking why do we target vacant leads when cold calling? Well there’s typically a higher probability of someone wanting or needing to sell a house that’s vacant vs one that’s occupied right? Plus when a house is vacant it usually needs a bunch of repairs, and the average homeowner just doesn’t have that type of money, time, or resources to fix the property up. Hence why they will sell it to us, and we will wholesale it for a quick fee.

How do you get the phone numbers?

Well let’s say you have a list of vacant homes already. What you’ll need to do is use some type of skip tracing software. Their are several websites that provide this service and I’ll list a few of them below.

  1. TLO.com
  2. Mircobilt.com
  3. Locateplus.com
  4. Intelius.com
  5. Whitepages.com

You’ll take the property address or the tax owners mailing address and run it to search for a phone number. If you ever been late on a bill, yeah… the debt collectors have used one of these services to find your number and contact you about making that payment.

When you’re able to get in contact with the homeowner you’re just going to say, “Hey I saw your house come up on our list as a vacant home, I’m interested in buying, do you have a minute to talk? If they say yes, then you’ll continue asking the regular questions you would when talking to a private seller. This is what two of my staff members do in my office everyday. In fact we just used this strategy to get a deal under contract this past week.

Check out the campaign.


Here’s the message from my Acquisition Manager who met up with the homeowner and got the seller to accept our offer. I never even physically saw the property. We’ll make around #25k wholetailing this property on the MLS.

Yes this deal came from our Vacant list and my assistant cold calling the homeowner. She said the reason why she wanted to do business with us because our assistant was so nice over the phone. She had received several postcards from other investors, but after getting our postcard and seeing a call from us, she wanted to do business with us.

Are you ready to start getting results like this?

Now you can go out and drive for dollars to find vacant homes, and hours using different skip tracing software to locate the sellers phone number. No doubt about it, it will work eventually. Or you can do the smart thing, and save tons of time and money by investing in yourself and business and purchasing vacant leads, which will come with our cold call scripts, our direct mail domination training, and postcards, contracts, etc.

If you’re a beginner this is the fastest way to get that first deal under your belt. Now this deal won’t be along forever so make sure to act now.

Is This The End Of Direct Mail?

So by now unless you’ve been living under a rock. You should know about the #1 social media site in the world Facebook…


But what you might not know is that in the third quarter of 2016, Facebook had 1.79 billion monthly active users. In the third quarter of 2012, the number of active Facebook users had surpassed 1 billion. That’s a lot of freaking people especially when the U.S. population is only 321 million +. So the chances of you finding someone you know like a long lost relative or friend is about 8/10…

But that’s not it…

The chances of you finding your ideal seller (motivated seller) is even higher… With the new updates to Facebooks data they have on everyone of it’s users it allows for huge opportunity for YOU and me. Yeah I hate to break it to you but Facebook knows everything about us. Where we live, where we shop even the last time you was on the net surfing porn… Bad boy or gal…

Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone…

The opportunity for us is that with a click of a button we can get in front of the eyeballs of a motivated seller. Facebook allows you to run ads right into the newsfeed . Ever logged in and just happened to be scrolling and saw one of these?


Yeah well you’ve been targeted my friend. The advertiser paid to have this show up right in front of you eyes. Chances are you probably clicked on several of the ads presented to you. Am I right? You may have even wondered how the heck was I just looking at this on their website and then I come on to Facebook and see the same thing? It’s called Dynamic Retargeting it’s simple and I’ll be teaching it on my upcoming bootcamp.

You can go here to get details 

So is this the end of direct mail campaigns? No, I don’t think that direct mail will be going anywhere. We’re still using it to pull in a lot of deals. However we have saw our response rate start to decrease with smaller campaigns. We’re spending twice as much now to pull in the same amount of deals. So for those of you that don’t have a huge budget you could be in trouble trying to compete with other experienced investors. Facebook advertising is considered the “NEW school wave of marketing.” 

No one is teaching it because frankly majority of them just don’t know how to. The rest of them don’t want the cat to get out the bag to cause more competition. In fact the people in my Mastermind warned me not to even share this with you. I have an abundant mindset I believe whatever I give I get 10X back in return.

So the other day I recorded a Facebook Live streaming video where I walked you through how to use this new wave of marketing to get leads and deals. I even show my campaigns I’m running and how I’m only spending $10 a day to get results.  Here’s the video.

So what’s next? How can you learn how to use Facebook to start finding leads and deals in your local or virtual market? Well you’re in luck my friend. You’ve asked the right questions…

Doors have just opened up for my upcoming 4 week bootcamp. This where I’ll be going to be teaching you step-by-step on how to get your campaigns launched.

We’ll go over:

  • Week 1: Millionaire Mindset Hacks + The Art Of Flipping Contracts
  • Week 2: Finding Deals & Getting Leads Off FaceBook Ads
  • Week 3: The Art Of Negotiation + Getting The Contract Signed
  • Week 4: Flipping The Deal To Cash Buyers For Quick Profit

All sessions will be recorded and available to each attendee. Q&A sessions will be held after each week.
