If you are an established, experienced property investor then this is a great way to develop your business further and to make extra income.

Once you have your lead generation channels set up you will start to receive many leads, more than you can handle. So why not set up a service where you can sell leads or deals to other investors. If you develop the lead into a deal you can charge between £2,000 and £5,000 per deal, dependent on the discount.

How can you generate leads?

  • Newspapers – put a simple ad in the newspaper, stating that you are looking to buy houses.
  • Leaflets – get some leaflets printed and deliver them door to door. Bear in mind you have to do thousands of leaflets to start to get results. We would recommend that you deliver these yourself initially to understand how long it takes. That way you won’t get ripped off by a leaflet distribution company.
  • Word of mouth – make sure everybody you know or meet knows that you buy houses. You’ll be surprised who starts to tell you about a house that’s for sale or somebody who is desperate to sell.

Sourcing BMV leads online.

BMV stands for below market value. The goal with property sourcing is to find as many targeted BMV leads as possible, for as low a cost as possible and to make the entire process automated.

You can hire a web designer to develop a website for you, but be careful most aren’t marketers, they are typically technical, so might not understand how to set up your site to achieve your goals. Perhaps get some recommendations from other investors who have used a designer already.

Another option is to build your own sites. This is not as difficult as it seems, but we would recommend that you get some good training before you start. There are a couple of things you need to do.

Make sure your website gives a clear message – you need to target motivational sellers. Each website should have a sole purpose. Keep it simple, use common sense. Be friendly, approachable You then need to get traffic to the site – you can’t leave it to chance. One of the ways to generate traffic is to use Google Ad Words, but be warned it can eat your budget in minutes!

Do you REALLY need an Estate Agent?

BreaWhat do I have against Estate Agents? Good question! I was an Estate Agent for some time and I know some of the tricks they get up to which do not benefit you or the purchaser. A favourite one that Estate Agents use is to take your house on to their books at a higher price than you were expecting. Suppose you were expecting to get £200,000 for your property. The typical Agent will visit the property and after a cursory examination will ask you how much you are expecting for it. (Note, he has no idea how much it’s worth!), When you say £200,000, he will say ‘No problem, I think it’s worth more than that. We could try for £225,000’. Naturally you will be overjoyed and you will agree to let him take it on his books. The next thing that happens is that you probably will get no...

What kind of properties are sold at auction?

  They are sometimes unusual or quirky properties that will not normally sell through estate agents and that are difficult to value or compare and really need to attract property investors, cash buyers or people looking for special deals. However, there are also perfectly standard properties that are being sold via this route – and you’ll also find a large proportion of mid range and first time buyer development projects in the pages of the auction catalogues. More recently, I’ve seen new build properties coming into the auction rooms as well, as developers are ‘off loading’ some of their unsold stock - and as an unfortunate result of the credit crunch, banks and lending institutions also put properties that they have had to repossess from the owners into auctions to realise some value against them quickly. This mix of stock can be regular semi detached, detached and terraced houses, flats and...

Should I use a Sourcing Company? - John Paul, Casteldene

This really depends on the strategy of the individual. Sourcing companies can free up your time immensely so that you can get on with the day job, they are for some investors a necessity, especially for those who are just starting out and rely on these companies for advice and guidance. Sourcing companies are also needed for investors who live out of the area and have no intention of carrying out high levels of due diligence. If you want high yielding, low priced properties then the North tends to be the place to look and for some southern investors they would rather rely on the experience and knowledge of experts in that area. There has been a lot of bad press recently about sourcing companies and the services (or lack of them) that they offer, however as with all unregulated business’s you will find that there will be a small...

Pre and Post Auction opportunities - Martin Roberts

  The intention for properties that are being put up for auction is that they are sold on the day of the auction. That’s one of the great things about buying (or selling) a property at auction – there’s no long, drawn out sales process – instead the property is sold to the person offering the highest bid on the day. However, not all properties are sold in this way – and it is very common that during an auction where any number of properties may be up for grabs that a percentage of them do not get sold. There are a number of different reasons for this: 1. The property is withdrawn from the auction after the catalogue has been printed (there could be any number of reasons for this including the vendor accepting a pre-auction offer – see below)   2. The bidding on a property doesn’t reach...
