If you’re in the real estate business, then one thing you most definitely need is property leads – and ideally ones from sellers who are actually motivated.

And without question, one of the best, most effective ways to generate motivated seller leads is by wooing them through the mail. Whether you do it with postcards, yellow letters, white letters, purple letters or hieroglyphics scratched on a dinner napkin, sending mail to motivated sellers is time-tested and proven to work no matter what market you're in.

And one of the best types of people you can mail to is the absentee owner.

What the Heck is an ‘Absentee Owner’ anyway?

Essentially this: Owners who are absent from the property itself. In other words, they don’t live there. And the tell-tale sign is that the property tax bill is being mailed to a different address than the subject property.

Why absentee owners?

Because often, they’re the ones who might be tired, burned out landlords. Or maybe they inherited the St. Pete property from Grandpa Joe, and don’t have the wherewithal to deal with it all the way from Des Moines. Or maybe they got transferred and had to move before they could sell it.

Basically absentee owners have a whole pile of possible reasons for being an ideal motivated seller. Which is exactly why so many real estate investors treat these guys as their ‘bread and butter’ lead pool.

What’s Behind Alex’s Curtain?

So Alex Pardo… the guys’ a giver, isn’t he? You can tell by all the awesome he’s shared with us here previously.

He’s also a dealmaker through and through, and loooooooves the absentee owners.

And today, he’s going to pull the curtain back and show you exactly what it looks like when he pulls his own absentee owner mailing list. The process may vary slightly on your end (depending on the software or service you use to do it) but the principles and criteria will be the same.

This is REI direct mail 101. It’s a fundamental skill every real estate investor should know how to do.

And I don’t know about you, but when I was starting out I’d take any chance I could to peek over an experienced investor’s shoulder and watch them do what they do. And that’s what Alex is letting you do right now.
