Telephone Script for Investors/Sellers

Telephone Script for Investors/Sellers

I am working on a step by step process for assignment of contracts. After I reach out to investors and sellers to build up my sellers/buyers list and these people call me, what script do I use or what do I say? I'm one of those people that I have to have some knowledge so when I talk to prospective sellers and buyers I know what I am talking about. I also know that experience is the best teacher.

Another question, Do I as a RE wholesaler use only 3 documents (per Carol,thank you)for the whole process? (1.The Instant Equity Exchange, 2. Investor Disclosure Agreement and Seller's Acknowledgment, & 3. Investor Purchase Agreement) Thank you in advance for your responses. Blessings

PS. I will be attending Dean's seminar here in Phoenix this saturday 01/29/2011, there I will purchase his books. Smiling

You have thinks backwards

Find the good deals first and then build your buyers list of that. I worked so hard on building a buyers list but had no deals so what's the point. Now I have deals and the buyers come quickly form a simple AD on Craigslist. Of course this would depend on your marketing or method to finding deals. THe only way you need your buyers list first is if you are working with a Realtor. If you are wholesaling to investors , then you only need an assignment of contract. I never used the other stuff you mentioned.

Thanks for this awesome

Thanks for this awesome info. But what do say when you call up a prospective investor and ask if you could do wholesaling for them? I myself would also like a script or something on paper to use as a reference when I contact possible investor buyers. I would just like to know how to start the conversation with them on the very first call. The script could be for a cash buyer or even a landlord that wants to buy other properties. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Script

Hi my name is _____ I am a wholesale investor and I noticed that you are an investor as well. Is that correct?

It is, Terrific.

Are you in the market for additional investment property?

Really, great.

What does your ideal property look like?

How many bedrooms and baths?

What area of town are you hoping to buy in?

Crazy question, what percentage of value do you buy at.

And are you a cash buyer or do you buy with bank money?

Once I find a property for you to buy how fast can you close?

BTW to find your buyers call your title company and ask them to run a list of purchased properties, both privately held and bought through an LLC without Mortgage or Trust Deeds purchased within the last 12 months.


great info thanks

thanks for sharing this info
Regards
Tom


Great thank you for that.

Great thank you for that.

Quick question just to make sure. When you say "what percentage of value do you purchase at?", does that mean if the investor buys the house at 70% of value, then 30% of equity still exists? Or could we ask how much equity they want in their deals? Either or I'm assuming.

I think thats what it means but I'm still learning so please bear with me. Haha, thanks for the help.

Value

Nothing wrong with learning we all do it daily...

Percentage of equity they want before paying up the equity. So if the home has a value of 100k what percentage of that figure do they want to buy at. Most believe it should be 70 % of ARV. I personally believe we should never consider ARV only current value and then the percentage depends on our business model.

Heck you can take a 100k fully leveraged property subject to with the loan in its 8th year and make 35k on the deal. With that said equity buying is a lot safer.

BTW most investors pay more than 100 percent of value for investment properties.. However the good ones dont.


backwards

Thank you Martin for your comment-that makes total sense to me!!!!

Barbis- you'll learn a lot at the seminar and from the books. I'm reading the books for the second time-lots of good information in them.

Scripts

Sphony, Thanks for all the information on what to say when engaging with potential clients. Sometimes we all have something too say, but, we tend to get too much info and then we get lost. This clears things up nicely. Thank you again. Live from Boston, Mass.
Peace:)

assignment of contract

Can you please explain how the assignment of contract works?

Also, how can I do it when Realtors are telling me it's illegal in Pa to sell without a license?

Thanks to all the Awesome people above for the scripts:)

Don't let those realtors

Don't let those realtors play the role of an attorney, they don't know the law. But, it should be legal. Consult with one of your attorneys or head to one of your local REI clubs and see what the other investors or saying. I'm pretty sure there will be a real estate attorney in their.


As long as you don't represent any seller or buyer...

You are ok if you're only representing yourself in any real estate deal. It's all in the verbage, and how you tell these people. If they're still giving you trouble, you need to find realtors that works with investors who know exactly what you would like to do. Once you have an equitable interest in the property, you can do just about anything with it.

assignment of contract

Welcome. Go back to the top and type in assignment of contract and you will find more than enough information. Good luck

Only represent yourself....

"thishousebuyer" is exactly right. In any real estate transaction when acting as a wholesaler you must ONLY represent yourself. It is "illegal" for you to represent a buyer or a seller in a transaction without a license. Also, Assignment of Contract deals are legal in every state.

good luck! Smiling
