Generate Leads for Your Real Estate Business

If you want to experience success make the investment and find a real estate lead generation system that works in 2018 for you.

Don’t only count on one source for leads, I would recommend Direct Mail, SEO, multiple real estate agents and using services like and hubzu.

Direct mail campaign is still the best way to find sellers, but you need to be certain you have access to strong leads so make sure you find a great source, I personally strongly recommend Real Estate Sales LLC.

Another major key to success as a flipper is accurately estimating both cost and timeline. That doesn’t mean there won’t be surprises, but you want to calculate the true cost of getting the property ready for sale. That includes purchase price, repair costs, marketing expenses and carrying costs, such as mortgage insurance and utility payments.

The first step is to be prepared for all your fixed and variable costs and then you can make start making estimates for those costs.
