Find Great Real Estate Investment Leads in Probates
   

Finding great leads for your real estate portfolio in today’s challenging economy can be a time consuming, frustrating process if you choose to work in the traditional market. There are options, though, that can make your life so much easier. Looking outside the traditional market at probates is a way to streamline your real estate business and find incredible leads.

The benefits to working in probate are substantial. Executors who have bills to pay, taxes to file and paperwork that must be

sent to the local court are often very willing to sell real estate for a fraction of the current market price. That means that you can save money if you are willing to offer a quick closing and buy a property in as-in condition. You can also take advantage of personal property, businesses, art, antiques and other items that may be for sale through the estate. These can lead to other streams of income for you and your business.

PROBATE WATCH
Investors are finding working in the traditional markets very frustrating right now. With homeowners that are underwater on their mortgages and yet unwilling to sell their homes, new construction going at a snail’s pace and banks still being tightfisted with their lending, there are fewer homes on the market than ever before. Finding a new way to invest in real estate is one of the best ways to build a portfolio that yields profits. Probates, divorce and bankruptcy leads is now one of the leading ways for investors to find and purchase the properties they want to have in their company. These new forms of investments create nearly instant profits and opportunities for savvy investors in real estate.

Before you know it, we will be turning the page on the end of another year. Smart investors work carefully to ensure that they are ready to get a quick start in 2016. What can you do to put yourself in the same position? It starts with planning. 

The most successful real estate investors spend a good deal of their time comparing where they are today with where they would

 

BUILDING A PROBATE WEBSITE AND PRESENCE

Nowadays, nearly every business has a website. If your probate business doesn’t have an Internet presence, then you are missing out on not only a powerful marketing tool, but also a way to verify that you are a reputable business.

Today’s consumers almost always check on the Internet to see if someone has a website. It is the way that they verify you are who you say you are. Have an inexpensive website built – you can even do it yourself – and take advantage of additional marketing opportunities.

End of the Year

like to be in the future. Having that long range view is the way that entrepreneurs create success.

In order to prepare for the end of the year, pull out your 2015 goals and evaluate where you are as opposed to the goals that you set months ago. Have you completed all of your goals? Are there ones that are no longer appropriate? Are you taking your business in a new direction with additional streams of income? These are all important questions to think about.

Also consider your monetary

 

goals for 2016. If you want to increase your income, make sure that you define that carefully and specifically. Saying “I want to make more money” isn’t nearly as powerful as “I want to break the six figure mark during 2016.” The time to start thinking about these goals is now.

Other items you can prepare include profit statements and financial forms. These can help you to evaluate where you are and where you want to go in the new year. Take the time now to do this planning and get a head start on next year’s success.

Probate Leads represent the last major market untapped real estate market segment in the US today! Now is your opportunity to step into this market.

INVESTING:

Keeping In Contact

If you aren’t getting the response from Executors that you had hoped for, it is time to examine your contact strategies. Successful real estate investors follow up with Executors about every 30 to 45 days until they either make a deal or see that the deal won’t work out. Stay in contact to profit!

Weathering the Holiday Slowdown in Real Estate

The holidays can be a mixed blessing for entrepreneurs. Having a break from work can mean time to get a fresh perspective, but it can also be frustrating as you watch your business slow down.

There are ways you can weather the holiday slowdown and still keep your business moving forward. The first step is to limit time off. While it can be tempting to take several weeks off during the holidays, that can really stall your progress once work starts again./p>

Items that can be worked on during the holidays include additional

marketing options that will pay off over the winter. Take the time to invite local attorneys who specialize in estate planning to lunch or give them more information about your business. Stop in at local funeral homes and provide your information for families. You can also meet with your local

image

clergy and make them aware of your services.

The lull in the holiday does not imply that you have to stop working. In fact, you can continue to evaluate leads, visit properties and talk to Executors. You may find that people are even more receptive due to the fact that they aren’t juggling work and closing a probate at the same time.

Keep working during the holidays. Success will come quicker when you keep at it!

Start Your 2016 Preparations
Now to Prosper in the New Year

While it might seem like the start of the New Year is quite a ways away, it is, in fact, just a few short weeks from happening. For some people, the New Year begins much like the old year ended, with little fanfare and the same vision for your business. Smart business owners know that a New Year is an opportunity to create a new vision that can lead to growth and success.

There are things that you can do to prepare for the New Year. Taking the time to prepare now will give you a great start when the New Year does start. The first step is to take stock of where you are right now. Is your

company in the position that you would like it to be? Have you given it a good effort this year or have you gotten distracted by all of the things that happen on a day-to-day basis?

One of the most important questions is whether you are making the kind of income that you would like. If you aren’t, then take the time now to prepare for the New Year by evaluating your financials. See where you are making money and where your money needs to be more closely managed. Projects that have out of control budgets, contractors that charge too much and capital expenditures on office equipment

and other items can really drain your bank account. By understanding where those issues are now, you will have a chance to change the outcome in the New Year.

Another way to prepare for the New Year is to take stock of your goals and write new ones. Evaluate your 2015 goals by thinking through whether they were accomplished or if they still fit. Write new goals now and think of a way to keep yourself accountable in order to get them completed.

Start working on 2016 now so that your year gets off to a quick start with success.

PREPARE FOR HOUSING SURGE NOW

Each year, the market goes through a familiar cycle. Sales and properties available go through slump near the holidays and then pick up again in the spring. One thing to be aware of is that to take advantage of the spring surge, you must be ready. Those efforts need to start now!

In many areas of the country, the spring surge starts at the end of January. With this push starting just a few months out, it is important that you start positioning your properties now. Make sure that any work you need to have completed is scheduled and done by the beginning of January. Start thinking about marketing strategies for these properties and how to best stage them for potential buyers.

Also remember that it is a great time to purchase new properties. Keep your eye out for new opportunities that emerge right after the first of the year.

Get a Mentor to Grow Your
Probate Business

There are times in the life of a business that the growth just stalls. Business owners who want to see their operation continue to thrive have found that mentoring (or coaching) is one of the best ways to get their business back on track.

A business mentor is someone who works in your business or a similar one and that can guide you in taking steps forward. A mentor (often called a coach) may not have all of the answers for you, but they can send you in the right direction.

Mentors in the probate industry have very specific skills that allow them to offer advice and techniques that can help you to move your business to the next level. From understanding how to find leads and how to evaluate them to experience with the construction process and selling property, you will find that a probate mentor can

be an incredibly valuable resource for your business.

The mentoring process starts with the question, “What do you want?” Once that is defined – whether it is a larger income, more properties in your portfolio or to add new streams of income – the mentor will work with you to define specific goals for your business. These goals are then broken down into manageable steps that you can pursue on a daily basis.

One of the biggest benefits to having a mentor for your probate business is that the coach will hold you accountable. So many times we say what we want in our life, but we don’t ever take the steps to get there. Mentors, or coaches, are trained to hear

these excuses and fears and challenge their clients to move past them. What this does is provide the impetus needed for you to take your business to the next level. Many times, the thing that you were concerned about doing or avoiding, such as visiting a new area or taking on an aggressive marketing strategy, seems very doable with the help of a mentor or a coach.

Most businesses that are successful have a mentoring relationship that moves the business forward. Find a mentor today or call on US Probate Leads. We offer an individualized mentoring program that can grow your business during 2016 and beyond. Call now!

A Note from the Editor
Together, we can find those probate-related properties
that will allow you to be a success in the probate area.

In just a few weeks it will be Thanksgiving Day, a day when we offer our gratitude. At U.S. Probate Leads, we are very grateful for all of our clients who work in the probate business. It is our honor to serve you!

As we prepare for the holidays, remember that work on your business can’t stop. In order to build a consistent income it is critical that you continue to go out in the field and look at properties. Take the time now to fully evaluate your leads and get in contact with Executors. Staying in contact means you

will be in the right place at the right time when an Executor is ready to make a deal.

Also consider that this slower time of the year is a great time to research and deploy a new income stream for your business. Whether you choose to offer estate sale services or apartment rehab packages, there are a myriad of options that can offer additional income to your business. With the slowdown in the holidays, you will have plenty of time to investigate a new model and decide if it is a

good fit for you.

Don’t let 2016 start without committing to growing your business. Take advantage of our mentoring services and watch your business grow!
