Read this snippet in a real estate magazine recently: "Letterboxes don't buy homes!", it's supposed to be a very low strike rate method for generating sales, probably applies for most things.I have an area in mind for building on a rear block, but nothing comes up for sale very often. So I was thinking of doing a letter box drop this weekend.
Has anyone had much success with this method?

A retired agency owner of some decades recently told me he loved the letter box drop method however, just combine the letter box drop times with the probability of the local elderly owners and the like being out and doing the gardening, this can lead to some great (and profitable) conversations.
They have computers now with Word Processing capability and mail merge and stuff...........marvellous stuff. You should look into it
I sent out about 25 letters trying to entice with words like - "will be able to make a decision quickly", "can offer cash", "I am not a real estate agent". Got 4 replies which I thought was excellent.
Nice one MTR I printed out 100 today similar sort of wording without the cash part!,I will deliver them tmrw morning, hopefully without a hang over but hey its Friday so will see how it goes.
Thanks for the feedback everyone
