Marketing for Motivated Sellers and Finding Off-Market Deals

I am about to reply to a question someone had about finding off market deals and realized I did not have a good spot that has some of the videos we have for marketing to find motivated sellers and off-market deals and my crazy spreadsheet for modeling marketing for motivated sellers and off-market deals. So, here are some of the videos from live classes we taught for our local investor club NCREIG in Fort Collins, Colorado. Plus, a link to download the spreadsheet.

Well, if you’ve ever had thoughts like mine or wondered if the small stuff matters as a real estate investor, this book is for you.

I’ve spent most of my professional career analyzing properties. As often for myself as I have for clients and in marketing to find new clients. I can honestly say, I have analyzed more deals than most people will ever analyze in their lifetime. I say this not because I am perfect at deal analysis; I am not.
