I get questions all the time that have to do with talking to sellers so today we are going to dive into how to talk to a motivated seller.
Some real estate investors are terrified to pick up the phone and talk to a motivated seller when it rings, especially those who are brand new. There are some folks that even go so far as to send out an expensive direct mail campaign, but never answer the phone when someone calls them.
If this sounds like you, the one thing that you need to know is that you aren't alone. In fact just about everyone felt this way in the beginning. I know seasoned investors that still hate taking calls from sellers. So how do you change that?
It's Time to Get Over Your Fear!
Several people have asked me recently to create a training that addresses this topic, so I finally decided to do it. I hit my friend and fellow real estate investor Kelly Payne up for a little role playing exercise. I want you to know right from the beginning, that this is totally unscripted. We were just winging it and having a whole lot of fun along the way. Kelly is so convincing role playing our 4 more challenging types pf sellers, I think she really needs to be in movies.
4 Types of Sellers
In this video we talk about 4 different types of motivated sellers.
- Those folks that won't give you any information; the ones with “one word answers” you have to drag the information out of.
- Sellers that tell are big talkers but they never answer your questions.
- The person that has to tell you their whole life story before they ever answer a single question.
- And our favorite; the one that actually spits out all of the information you need without all the drama.
