Hey all my name is Derek Maples and like most of you I couldnt resist Dean's infomercial so I bought the book and wrapped it up in 3 days. I just kept turnin pages (my highlighter hated me). The route I am choosing to begin my REI career is the distresed homes. I spent 2 days scouring my community jotting down addresses of hoems that looked beat up or downright nasty. My local county website has a feature where I can find the homeowner of any address (but no phone number) so I did that from all my props I found.
So now what? How do I contact the homeowner in these cases and what should I say? In some cases it was an out of town owner, some werent. I am hoping to catch them in pre-foreclosure, or other circumstances that could elad them to want to get rid of their prop at a bargain.
