What Tools Does a Wholesale House Investor Need?

California Wholesale Real Estate: There are some essential tools that are needed by every real estate wholesaler that wants to succeed. Websites, phone service, a back office staff, signage, direct mail advertising, and free classified sources. A camera that takes decent photos is also essential.

California Wholesale Real Estate InvestingA good website may be the best tool you can have. People tend to search first for what they need on the internet. You will be wise to show up in their searches. When they find your site it should be a decent one, too, with lots of informative text and easy ways to contact you. This is also where you can run your email campaigns from. Set your auto responder to give them immediate feedback by giving a free report or something similar. They will want a quick response.

Good phone capabilities are another essential tool. You’ll need to speak to the potential customers personally at some point. When you need to call or accept calls, you can’t afford to have sketchy service or dropped calls. Why risk your business with inferior phone service. There are other options at this point. Try Skype or one of the free or low cost internet phone calling services. Find out what service offers the best in quality and cost packages in your area and obtain their services.

A back office setup is what you’ll need to keep track of everything. You need a place to keep your leads organized, your secondary calls made, and other business items that will keep your office running. There are numerous forms used in real estate transactions that need to be kept and organized. Your marketing materials and spreadsheets are essential so you have to have a way to access them easily. Organization is the bottom line for your back office. Hire help if you can.

Signs are, interestingly enough, the lifeblood of real estate wholesaling. How many times have you seen those ‘bandit’ signs on a street corner and been curious. They are incredibly effective beyond imagination so you’ll need to get some. Don’t forget the stapler when you go out to place them.

Place ads in free classified sites online and in print press. Where ever you put in an ad, it should be very simple and can be effective in the free format sites. The readers regularly read the classifieds so your ad should be in there, too. It costs nothing but your time.
