Mike: Hey, it’s Mike Hambright from, and we have a quick VIP tip to share with you from Tim Mai, who is going to share a tip on how to use virtual assistants to find more deals.

Tim: So here’s the really, really good, easy tip, very inexpensive. What I have my virtual assistants do is to look on Craigslist for “for sale by owner” and “for rent by owner” and then call them, email them, text them to see if the house is still available for sale, if it is a “for sale by owner,” and then, for the “for rent” ones, I just see if they are interested in selling instead of just renting. If they’re interested in selling, great, right? If they’re not interested in selling, we ask them, “Well, are you interested in buying more rental properties?” Because we always have wholesale deals to sell. So it’s a very inexpensive way to get deals, and I guarantee you’ll get deals very quickly and you’ll build your buyers list at the same time doing just that.
