Motivated Sellers and How Sellers Become Motivated To Sell

On this podcast episode I talk about motivated sellers and how sellers become motivated to sell. The key thing to understand is that NOT all sellers are motivated. In fact, most sellers are not motivated at all. My mentor Ben told me: “Buy houses from people that HAVE to sell, not from people that WANT to sell”. A motivated seller needs to sell their property and they need to sell now. They HAVE TO SELL and do not have the luxury of time on their side. Sellers may be motivated to sell because of property damage, financial hardship, or life circumstances. Damage to their property, divorce, a death or disability, foreclosure, job loss, relocation and many other reasons could cause a seller to be in a financial situation where they suddenly find themselves needing to sell their house fast. When they are in this situation if you are marketing to them via direct mail, cold call, Facebook Ads, Google, Text marketing etc. then you have a better chance of buying their house at a discount than from a seller that is not motivated to sell. The key is finding these motivated sellers. To qualify a seller as motivated they need to meet two main criteria: 1. They have to sell their house fast 2. They have to sell their house for cash If your seller does not need to sell quickly or does not need to sell for cash then they are not really motivated enough to sell at a discount. Many sellers want market value for their house and we refer those to a realtor. But when a property is damaged, or the seller is motivated to sell fast for cash (at a discount) then we have an opportunity to buy those houses. That is why it is so important to market to these types of sellers. On the next podcast episode I will cover types of motivated seller lists and how to find and purchase motivated seller lists.

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.

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!
