Just finished calling my sphere of influence (SOI) that I got behind on from last week. Feels great to catch up on my tasks of calling my SOI. Now I have to start reviewing the county clerk’s website for new probates.
Speaking of the county clerk’s website, there is a great way to find potential new listings that many Unleashed listing agents use.
Property owners that are behind on their taxes.
You can research homes that are behind in paying their property taxes. These houses give you an enormous opportunity! Did you know that over 23% of homes that are sold in any given year have some type of back tax to pay?
The fact that these many sellers are behind on property taxes is amazing to me.
And an amazing opportunity.
Full disclosure: I have never tried finding listings using this approach.
One of my listing agent buddy’s told me you can locate properties in your city that have overdue property taxes on the county clerk’s website.
I would identify these properties and knock on their doors, start a mailing campaign or try finding their phone numbers and call them.
I would imagine there would be a large number of property owners with unpaid back taxes, who may also be behind in their mortgage payments, and they may be strongly motivated to sell.
Identifying these raccoons could be well worth the effort and could bring you a new source of Unleashed listings!
