Eviction leads provide opportunities to reach the landlord/homeowner while they are going through all of the headaches associated with evicting someone. You will want to source these while they are fresh and are in real time, meaning the event is taking place now.
We are gonna show you how to pull eviction leads that appear to be individual or mom and pop owners.
Create a spreadsheet in Excel. We will be focused on adding columns and rows for the following information:
Enter the date of the filing and also the filing reference number for future use. Remember to source only the freshest filings. The goal is to reach the landlord while the eviction is currently taking place and in real time. Dealing with an event that happened weeks or months ago may not be effective as contacting the landlord in real time.
IMPORTANT: When sourcing eviction leads we only want to pull those that appear to be individual or mom and pop property owners. We will be tossing out all that reflect landlords as LLC's, corporations, property management companies, eviction service companies and also roommate evictions. This process is easier said than done as you'll soon find out:
LANDLORD NAME: Before enter the landlord's name on your spreadsheet you need to make sure the person listed as the landlord actually owns the property. Otherwise you will be wasting your time:
LANDLORD MAILING ADDRESS: Some of the mailing addresses listed for the landlords actually belong to third parties, such as property management companies. Make sure you have the correct property owners mailing address before sending out any mailers. Otherwise it could be a huge waste of your time. Here are several scenarios:
The bottom line is that you need to pay close attention to the landlord's name and contact info. If you find yourself sending mailers to third parties that can't make decisions and you are wasting time and money.
The property address is where the eviction is taking place:
Do an internet search to verify the property isn't listed. This can be done by entering the address into your browser and checking the address against online real estate sites. Most of these sites will tell you if the property has been listed. ALWAYS DO THIS STEP. IF THE PROPERTY IS FOR SALE THAN THE EVICTION LEAD WILL MOST LIKELY BE OF NO VALUE TO YOU.
We offer high quality eviction leads in many areas.
