I realized today I have been missing opportunity. (And I'll betcha anything someone here has already talked about this and I probably read right past it. lol)
I've been running several Craiglist and newspaper ads for rent. Typically, once I have a renter, I cancel the ad and/or leave a message on my phone saying "I'm sorry, that house has been taken". Well, it hit me today that I've been throwing away leads! So the calls I received today, instead of letting them hang up I said I was sorry, the house was taken, but there may be other ones coming up. I asked what they were looking for, where, and when they need to move by. I think I will also ask now if they are interested in a lease/option. Then I can add the yeses to my buyers list, too. SO, I'm going to continue my "for rent" ads on Craigslist (hey, it's free), as another source of contacts (whether I currently have something or not). Another "live and learn".
