I am here now.....the owner is interested in selling and conversation going on to the deals of money.Step 3: Contacted Owners
The auditor site included the owner name and mailing address for each building. We literally sat down and searched google trying to find a phone number connected to those names/addresses. If we found one, we added it to the list until we had done a search for each one.
Once we had the numbers, we picked up the phone and called each one. We would alternate who called each time.
Here are the responses we would get:
1. Number was invalid
2. No answer. In this case we left a message. Name, number, asked them to call if they were interested in selling
3. Someone would answer. We would say hello, tell them we are investors looking at Pleasant Ridge, and ask them if they would consider selling their building. Their responses were:
a. “Why are you calling me??!!”
b. “Thanks, but we’re not interested”
c. “Let me take your number, I’ll get back to you”
A couple of months later I got a voicemail from an owner interested in selling.
