How To Get Noticed and Stay Noticed on Real Estate Websites

If you have ever tried to sell a property, or worked with a realtor trying to sell a property, you know that visibility of your listing is key.  But websites like Zillow.com and Realtor.com favor new listings.

Now you may have had your property in contract.  During the option period, the buyer's financing didn't come through.  Now you re-activate your listing.  However, at this point your listing may be 3, 4, or more weeks old.  Perhaps several hundred new listings have been placed, and you find your listing now on page 9!

What do you do to get back on page 1?  What do you do to keep your listing visibility high, and near the top?

There are a couple easy ways to keep your listing near the top.  Real estate websites recognize changes in listings, which gets your listing noticed.  So, feel free to change the price, either higher or lower.  You can repeat this every 2-3 days.

How to Find Houses to Flip

One of the most common questions I get asked is, "How do you find houses to flip?"

In this week's video, host Michael Owen explains his best technique to locate homes to flip.  For a relatively small investment, you can purchase data lists of people behind on their mortgages.  These lists can be custom-ordered to criteria that you are looking for.  You can specify the price range, location, and other factors.

Michael uses DataListLeader.com.  Ziggy at DataListLeader can get you the information you need at a reasonable price.

From there, you need to send out mailers to the people on that list.  It is important to use envelops or postcards that stand out from other mail.  We often use yellow paper, and handwritten addresses on the envelopes.  

It is a good idea to contact the same people 3 times, a few weeks apart.  This has been shown to be more effective than contact 3 times as many people one time.
