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.

Marketing Processes and Metrics Spreadsheet

This spreadsheet will allow you to enter your assumptions about how much time and money you are investing into each step of finding motivated sellers via marketing and making seller presentations. It will then tell you how much time and money you need to spend and how much you might expect to make based on those assumptions. It allows you to plan how much you need to spend to get a deal to pop out the backside.

I have a video of a class I taught live for NCREIG, which I called Motivated Sellers 101 which walks you through it as well. Here's the video and the link to download the spreadsheet is below the video.
