Today wraps up the end of day one of the Yellow Letter campaign.? I received 30 calls in total.? That’s already a 3.75% response rate.? However, there are only two leads (one warm and the other is semi-warm).? This technique is reported to yield a 10 to 15% response rate, so that means I should have another 50 responses or so.? Hopefully, I’ll get some more leads.? I could care less about responses.
Which brings me to my next topic.? I have about 7 voicemail messages that are utterly ridiculous.? These messages were left when my Realtor was occupied with other calls or after 6pm.? And I mean they are pure comedy!? I bet the callers would be infuriated more if they could hear me laughing when listening to their messages.? I’m choosing the top two to share for your listening pleasure.? I worked on my six-pack by listening to these.
The last message really inspires me to make an offer.? He wouldn’t have received a letter if he had a house with a tax assessed value over $150K, in-case you couldn’t smell the sarcasm.
Perhaps I’ll FedEx this guy an offer tomorrow.? The offer would be an option to buy his house in 2 days for $500k.? I’ll include a $100,000 option-consideration check, however there would be an inspection contingency.? He must have heated marble floors throughout, even in the garage!? I would definitely do this if I could hide in the bushes and secretly video tape his reaction when he read the offer.? That would be sooo worth it!? You don’t even know!
I mean seriously…there were many people who called and spoke to my Realtor or left a message pissed-off that I mailed them about buying their house.? If you didn’t care, don’t pick up the phone and waste your breath and my time.? Some people just have way too much free time on their hands and want something to have an opinion about.? Some of these messages remind me of the Family Guy episode with the lonely old widow cut-away.? A few of these ladies got my letter today for sure and called in.
Seriously, these people just don’t know I was making it rain with their letters hours before I sent them. Kick rocks! I’m out.
If my CraigsList ad gets flagged one more time, I’m whoopin some ass!
