The Art of Real Estate Hustling: A Day in the Life

Ever had one of those days where things just hit you all at once? That’s how this conversation with a friend started. But instead of diving into our woes, we found ourselves weaving through the intricacies of real estate, marketing, and the hidden gems of “Driving for Dollars” apps that could transform our game. Let’s break it down.

The Keto Life and Casual Chats

First, let’s set the scene. We kicked off with the usual chatter—how’s life, how’s the family, are you still keeping up with that keto diet? It was a light-hearted start, complete with jokes about carbs and being “naturally sexy.” You know, typical banter before diving into the meat (pun intended) of the conversation.

The Real Estate Grind

The Current State of Business

We quickly shifted gears to talk about business. “How’s everything going?” Simple question, but it opened up a floodgate of insights. Turns out, the real estate market can be brutally dry, especially if you’re not consistent with your follow-ups. That’s where most of the deals are—right in the follow-ups.

The Power of Follow-Ups

Often, rookies think a simple cold call will seal the deal. But here’s the hard truth: the gold is in the follow-ups. Miss out on those, and you’re just treading water.

Making the Call

Inquiring Leads

Mid-conversation, a call came in. Someone was looking to sell a property. “Great,” I thought, “here’s a hot lead.” But caution is key. Is this person a genuine seller? An investor looking to “daisy chain” a deal? Or worse, is it law enforcement trying to sniff around?

Playing It Safe

In real estate, you can’t afford to blow your cover on the first call. If someone’s suspicious, hang up and call them back later from a different number. Check their motives and be on your guard. It’s all about striking the right balance—being approachable yet cautious.

The Driving for Dollars App

Selecting and Saving Properties

Next up, we dove into the “Driving for Dollars” app. This app is a game-changer. Drive around, spot potential properties, and with a tap on the screen, you can save the address, view property details, and even estimate values.

Property Details

Everything from the year built, last mortgage date, equity, and even the last sale price is at your fingertips.

Adding Properties to Marketing Lists

While driving, if you find a property that piques your interest, save it and add it to your marketing list. You can even take notes and snap photos of these properties for future reference.

Neighborhood Analysis

Observing Property Conditions

An important part of this hustle is observing neighborhood conditions. New roofs, broken windows, and old doors can tell a lot about the property’s story. Why hasn’t this property been updated? Is it because they don’t have insurance, or is it simply neglected?

Deduction and Strategy

We spotted a house with a broken window and another with an old roof. Such properties scream potential. Why haven’t these houses been updated? Likely, these homeowners are prime candidates for a quick sale, especially if they’ve suffered recent storm damage and lack insurance.

Engaging with Residents

Knocking on Doors

We decided to approach a resident. Engaging directly with property owners can yield golden opportunities. We explained our purpose, offered a finder’s fee, and hoped for the best.

Humorous Negotiations

Sometimes, you get a laugh out of these encounters. Offering a “500,000 bucks” finder’s fee might get your tongue tied, but it keeps the mood light and the conversation going.

App Features Overview

Tracking and Skiptracing

One of the standout features is the ability to track your driving routes. No more second-guessing whether you’ve been down a street before. Plus, the skiptrace and direct mail capabilities are phenomenal. You can track properties and send out marketing material without missing a beat.

Emoji Ratings for Efficiency

We even devised a unique note-taking system with emoji ratings. A simple “pregnant emoji” can indicate how urgent a follow-up is. More pregnant emojis, the higher the priority. It’s funny, but it works!

Team Collaboration

Adding Team Members

Real estate is a team effort. You can add your team members to the app, assign roles, and ensure everyone is in sync. Data guys curate information, cold callers hit the phones, and field guys drop pins.

Real-Time Sharing

The app syncs all information in real-time, making it easy for anyone in the office to pick up where you left off. Collaboration has never been this seamless.

Practical Applications

Combining with Bandit Signs

While you’re out dropping bandit signs, why not multitask? Open the app, drop pins on distressed properties, take photos, and add them to your CRM. It’s all about maximizing every minute you’re in the field.

Streamlining Processes

This app doesn’t just organize; it streamlines. No more scattered notes or missed opportunities. Everything you need is in one place, boosting your productivity and efficiency.

Getting Started

Setting Up and Learning

Intrigued? Setting up your account is a breeze. Spend a little time getting familiar with the interface and functions. Trust me, it’s worth the investment.

Committing to Implementation

This tool is only as good as your commitment to using it. Once you’ve got the hang of it, incorporate it into your daily routine. The payoff is substantial.

Final Insights

In conclusion, our chat about real estate, marketing, and the game-changing “Driving for Dollars” app underscored the importance of follow-ups, strategic thinking, and leveraging technology. From casual keto banter to in-depth property analysis, we navigated the highs and lows of the real estate grind. 

The app’s features—detailed property information, neighborhood analysis, and seamless team collaboration—have the potential to transform how we scout and secure deals. It’s a tool that, when committed to, can significantly streamline processes and enhance productivity. So, dive in, get familiar with the app, and watch your real estate game elevate to new heights.
