Flipping Your First House Part 4 – Mailing Lists

This is the fourth and final podcast episode in the “Flipping Your First House” Podcast Series. If you have not already done so, please listen to Flipping Your First House Parts 1 through 3 before you listen to this podcast episode. On the previous podcast episode (Flipping Your First House Part 3) I spoke about the types of mail pieces that you can use to mail out which were: 1. White Letters 2. Yellow Letters 3. Postcards On this podcast episode I am talking about mailing lists, types of mailing lists and how to obtain mailing lists. You need to have a list of homeowners in order to be able to implement direct mail. The first part of the direct mail process is to create a list. On this podcast episode I talk about the types of lists that you can get by using sites like: http://www.listsource.com and http://www.listability.com You can create lists of absentee homeowners, probate, tax delinquent, code enforcement violations, evictions foreclosures etc. Some of these lists can be created by registering with the sites above but some lists need to be created by obtaining the list directly from your County Court House or County Property Appraiser Web Site. You can also obtain specialized lists from different sources for example we get our probate and tax delinquent list from http://www.rebogateway.com and we get our inherited list from http://www.usleadlist.com. There are many sources of direct mail and we pay top dollar for customized mail lists and for list stacking of different lists where the homeowner may have multiple pain points. For example absentee homeowners that live out of state and that are also delinquent on their property taxes would be an example of a homeowner with multiple pain points. In our experience, the most motivated sellers have multiple pain points and really need to sell fast. Once you download your list into a spreadsheet format (CSV), you can email that spreadsheet file to your mail house, and the mail house can print and mail your mail piece (postcards or yellow letters or white letters). If you want to learn how to put together a direct mail campaign, and the components of a direct mail campaign, then watch the video that I put together for you that explains the process at: http://www.lexlevinrad.com/directmail If you are brand new to real estate and want to learn more about how to wholesale real estate and flip houses then please register for the free wholesaling real estate training at this link below: FREE WHOLESALING TRAINING https://www.lexlevinrad.com/webinar FIXING AND FLIPPING TRAINING If you want to learn how to fix and flip houses I have a fix and flip training webinar at this link: https://www.lexlevinrad.com/fixandflipwebinar DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE TO THIS PODCAST TO BE NOTIFIED OF UPDATES SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL http://www.youtube.com/lexlevinrad?sub_confirmation=1 CONNECT WITH ME ONLINE http://www.lexlevinrad.com http://www.facebook.com/lexlevinradrealestate http://www.twitter.com/lexlevinrad http://www.instagram.com/lexlevinrad http://www.linkedin.com/in/lexlevinrad http://www.pinterest.com/lexlevinrad https://plus.google.com/+LexLevinradrealestate DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY OF MY BOOK ON WHOLESALING PROPERTIES For more real estate tips about property investment, investing in real estate, and how to start wholesaling, download a FREE copy of my best selling book “Wholesaling Bank Owned Properties” at https://www.lexlevinrad.com

Excellent Content!!!!!

This is a wonderful podcast to listen to with such valuable content. I was very interested to listen to your take on why one should purchase rental property.


Best real estate investor podcast.

Lex gives you real tips with actual names of multiple sites and services to use from the beginner up to advanced. I feel he’s giving away his classes for free on the podcast. Most podcasts stop short of details and give generic advice unless you join there groups.


The Real Deal!

I’ve been looking to get into the world of real estate investing but everyone I ask gives me answers that makes it all sound way too easy. This podcast gives you the real deal. More please!

Great show for beginners or experts!

As an amateur flipper since I was in my teens, I kind of have gotten pretty good at identifying great opportunities and taking advantage of them. But, Lex dives much deeper and gives actionable tips on how to make sure you are looking at everthing before making any decisions. I'm hooked!

Be Prepared to Learn!

Two words: Information Dense. Sweet Moses. I’ve listened to other real estate investing podcasts but this by far is the most practical, the most hands-on podcast I have heard to date. You can tell that the host, Lex, is very passionate about real estate investing. That passion with his experience translates into an excellent podcast. He shares theory about a topic and then tells a story about his experiences in the real world. That to me is gold!
