A large percentage of the mail we receive are from people that complain that sellers don’t want to do a lease purchase, they just want to sell their house. Or sellers come up with too many objections. My questions to those individuals are:
1. How soon after a property is listed are you calling? If you are calling only 2-4 weeks after a house is listed, sellers are not as interested. They still believe they will sell their home.
2. Are you following up on those sellers who say they are not interested now? While right now they may not be interested in lease purchasing their home, they might be six months down the road. Remember you are not in this business for the short term, but the long term.
