If you want to find off-market properties, you might start by driving around your local area and finding addresses of run-down homes (AKA driving for dollars). Or, you could use list brokers to find tailored lists with names, addresses, and other data on property owners who may fit your perfect criteria of a prospective seller.
Before you start paying for real estate lead lists, you’ll want to define your criteria of what makes a good lead. Maybe you’re looking for absentee owners, owners who recently inherited a house, or owners who have a fair amount of equity in their home. No matter how you create your list criteria, you’ll want to choose something specific so it’s niche enough , but not so specific that you’ll only get a lead list of five people.
