Purchasing Motivated Seller Lists

On this podcast episode I talk about purchasing motivated seller lists and where and how to purchase these lists or get access to them. The smartest real estate investors know that if you are marketing to motivated sellers then knowing how to get the best lists is extremely important. Motivated seller lists are broken down into many different categories. You can purchase many different types of lists including foreclosure lists, absentee owner lists, probate lists, inheritance lists etc. Some of these lists can be located for free on the county or city website. Some cities and counties make locating this information more difficult than others. List brokers are able to provide some of these lists for a fee. Some of the hardest to obtain lists require you to physically go down to the court house. Those are the best lists since the least amount of investors actually bother to do that. The worst lists are the ones that are the easiest to purchase. The best lists are the ones that your competitors don’t know about. The big question I get asked all of the time by my students is WHERE and HOW to purchase these lists. This podcast episode will help you with that. Generally speaking you can break out your motivated seller lists into different groups (some of which are listed below). This list is NOT all inclusive. There are many lists that are not listed below. COURT SYSTEM Probate Judgement Divorce Eviction Bankruptcy Foreclosure COUNTY OR CITY Code Violations Tax Delinquent Water & Sewer Liens Utility Shut Off LISTS THAT CAN BE PURCHASED Vacant Properties Recently deceased Pre-probate Probate Reverse Mortgage Medical Conditions Inherited Pre-foreclosure 30,60,90 Day late Guardianships Fire Damaged Incarcerated/Arrested Bail Bonds/Liens Absentee Free and Clear High Equity No Equity Negative Equity Unknown Equity Foreclosure Medical conditions Vacant Houses Financial Distress Likely to move low income/bad credit MLS Expired Listings Listings with many days on market MLS Search of keywords like “fixer upper” MLS Search for REO’s, Short Sales FOR SALE BY OWNER FSBO Zillow So the question is where does a real estate investor go to buy these motivated seller leads? Here are some of the resources that I personally use, or have used in the past which may help you narrow down your choices: Pioneer Data Exact Data Agent Pro 247 Melissa Data Listsource Listability US Lead List Successor’s Data Foreclosures Daily REIFax.com Rebo Gateway 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 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.

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!
