How to Get Sellers to Call You and Offer you Their Home for a Rent-to-Own
Now that we’ve discussed ways to find rent-to-own homes, what would you say to having rent-to-own sellers call you and offer you their home? That’s right. You can just sit by the phone and wait for sellers to call you and tell you about their rent-to-own home.
Many of these sellers will not have their homes listed with a real estate agent, so if you are working with an agent, this may not be for you.
The advantage of having the seller call you is that you already know he is willing to consider rent-to-own. You just need to figure out if his home and terms will work for you.
“Alright Wendy! So how do I do this?”
Posting ads is a way to get sellers to come to you.
The first way is by posting ads about yourself and rent-to-own. Here is one example:
This is a sample ad of what you would put in the newspaper where space is an issue – the more space you use the more it costs you. These ads though are just enough to get the attention of a home seller who has started to think about what choices he must make if he doesn’t sell soon.
You can also post an ad on FREE sites like Craigslist, Yahoo! groups and Google groups. I also recommend posting some flyers on community bulletin boards as well as posting flyers using these FREE Internet sites. These methods are much cheaper than the newspaper classified ads and may be all you need.
The whole purpose of these ads is to filter out the home sellers who don’t want tenants and to get the ones that would consider tenants to call you.
Here are some questions you can ask sellers once they call you:
Where is your home located?
Can you tell me what price you are looking to get for your home?
How many bedrooms and baths does it have?
Do you know what the rental rates are in your area? About how much were you thinking for monthly rent?
Not only will these questions help you gain more information about the sellers, it will also help you build rapport with the seller as well. Check out my book Rent-to-Buy to learn more about other ways to get sellers to call you.
