Foreclosure Investing-Telephone Magic

Are you afraid of the telephone?

You would be surprised to find out that many people do not even attempt foreclosure real estate investing because they are afraid of making a telephone call. If that is you, I have some great news for you.

I am going to take away the phone fear for you at absolutely no charge.

Would you like to know how to pick up the phone and call a homeowner to discuss purchasing their property without being afraid? I’m going to tell you. In fact, what I am about to do is unprecedented.

I am going to tell you exactly what to say. It’s called a telephone script and some people would charge you hundreds of dollars for it. I’m not only going to give a script to you for free, I’m going to give you two of them.

All you have to do to work some Telephone Magic is obtain the telephone number of a prospective homeowner and, after practicing a few times, repeat the words contained in one of the following two scripts:

  • Script one. Hello, my name is NAME and I would like to speak with HOMEOWNER NAME, please. [After the homeowner gets on the phone with you, say] I am calling you today because we work with people who are facing challenges with their mortgage. The company that holds your mortgage has filed legal documents with the county to begin proceedings to take your home away from you. These documents are public record, and that’s how we found out about your situation. We have worked with people facing this exact same issue for many years, and would like to discuss some possible solutions with you. We may be able to help you obtain a forbearance, sell your home, find a cash buyer for your home, or take other creative steps to stop the legal proceedings and keep any foreclosure off of your credit report. We would like to schedule a free, no obligation consultation to discuss possible solutions to this situation. May I set up a time for us to come meet with you?
  • Script two. Hello, my name is NAME. I have been looking to purchase a home in this area and heard that your house might be for sale. When I drove by to look at it, however, there was no sign in the yard. Is your home on the market?

As you can see, you don’t have to be afraid of talking on the phone. Simply go over these scripts until you are able to say them smoothly and confidently. Feel free to put things in your own words. You don’t want the homeowner to realize you’re reading something, so do your best to sound natural. You may want to print out the script and use a highlighter to highlight certain words and phrases as sort of an outline. That way you can say things in your own words, but if you need help, you can refer back to the script. After you have made a few phone calls, you will find that you don’t need to use scripts anymore. You will have overcome your fear completely.

Was fear of talking on the telephone standing between you and financial security? Are you not living the lifestyle you desire because you thought it was too hard to successfully invest in real estate? If so, your worries are over.

I encourage you to investigate for yourself the many advantages of successful real estate investing.
