i am not sure if this was talked about but i will mention it again for newbies.I advertise on craigslist and local pennysaver and free trader and on many cork boards a house for sale THAT I DO NOT YET HAVE.when the callers call i tell them i am in the buying stage of this house [which really i am ]pre stage and if this certain house falls through would you be interested in another property i may acquire?? i then give them a few questions to answer that i record to keep that tells me what they r looking for and there pymnt they need and how much down payment they have to use.i also ask if they have anything as a trade in??car,house,garage,motorcycle,tools,anything of value.i think this is a little out of the box as i have gotten some things that i could sell to generate cash for my next deal .these things i write down for future reference so if i call them back to tell them i may have a certain deal for them i may have an EXTRA TO GET in the deal if they nead to throw something in to make the deal go through.point in case i took a 2006 astro double wide in trade in exchange for a down payment on a single family home.sold the dbl wide for the amount i owed on the house and now i will collect a nice payment free and clear for the next 7 years!!! WITH 8% INTEREST. i have gotten many potential buyers on my list by advertising a POTENTIAL house!
and dont be afraid to ask if a buyer has any thing to trade!!
