If you are just now getting into the profitable world of wholesaling, the internet is a tool you should become an expert in. The majority of buyers and investors are going online to find deals. There are so many websites, listing pages, and classified ad sites that its hard to tell which is best. It is always changing and will never be the same, but for now, I have compiled a list of sites and online tricks a wholesaler should be doing in order to find cash buyers for their real estate deals.
Craigslist – Consider the headline you put in a craigslist ad to be high end real estate. The headline is very valuable and has high SEO value. If you have a deal in Arizona, put Arizona Wholesale Deal in the headline and in the city box, put your website. Within the body just put brief information about your wholesale deals, your investment properties, and cash flow deals with a link to your website. Craigslist hyperlinks websites that have an http:// in them, so make sure it’s in there. Also, have a picture in the ad. People don’t want to see an ad for a wholesale deal and see that there is no picture – that leads to hesitation. I got 111 unique hits to my site and 30 new opt-ins from my craigslist ads.
Facebook – Don’t join every single group out there that is a wholesale group. First of all, if you join a wholesale group that is not localized, you will be wasting your time. The group manager just wants people to join and then spam them with another guru’s product launch. Your best bet is to create your own group and call it, CITY cash Buyers group. This will attract a lot of people to your group and ultimately your opt-in site. Use this wisely and always have a property to promote, even if it is not your own. Make sure you message everyone in the group individually and start a conversation, which is how I found my best cash buyer!
Mywholesaledeals.com – This is a website people in Chicago use to post deals and get cash buyer leads. Like many lead generating sites, it allows people to post property and it charges everyone to view the leads. I am always posting deals on MyWholeSaleDeals.com because if a person is paying to view leads, he is more serious than not. Dummy leads are good too, don’t let them know it’s a dummy instead tell them it already has a contract pending and ask them pertinent questions you’d ask any serious investor.
Vflyer or Postlets – These sites are flyer sites that help you create an online flyer for property. The good thing about these services is that they allow you to ad video and also syndicate the post and 8-12 other real estate sites for optimum results. They also give you a code that you can use to post in Craigslist and Backpage. The main factor is post syndication, the more websites your flyer gets on, the higher click troughs’ you will have, the more people sign up to your website.
County Websites – Using the country websites to find cash buyers involves a bit of detective work. In Cook County there are sites that allow you to find the pin number, the tax info, and title and lien information. You will want to get the latest sold property in your area of work, look up the tax info to see who purchased it, and Google search the company to find a number. Although it’s a bit tedious, you can find cash buyers this way.
Do not be limited in your thinking! There is always creative ways to find who purchasing cash in your area of choice is. Although the internet is a huge boost, nothing beats face to face networking and old fashioned marketing. Make sure you learn to use the site, for more information on finding cash buyers for your wholesale deal and more, go my website that is listed below
