Flip Tip Transcript:
Mike Hambright: Hey it’s Mike Hambright from FlipNerd.com and we have a quick Flip Tip to share with you from David Krulac who’s going to share a tip on the importance of telling everybody that you’re buying real estate.
David Krulac: The first property I bought, I bought from telling a co- worker that I was looking for a house. It was a house that was poorly advertised, if that co-worker hadn’t told me, and I hadn’t told him I was interested in buying real estate I would have never got that house. It was a great house for me.
The second house I bought a co-worker of my wife, their grandmother passed away, and had this apartment building for sale. It wasn’t advertised. There was not even a sign on the property. I wouldn’t have got that property if it wasn’t for word of mouth.
Oftentimes when I’m buying a property, I’ll introduce myself to the neighbors and I’ll compliment them, and I’ll say, “Boy you have a really nice house there, if you ever think about selling you know, please give me a call,” and I’ll give them my phone number so they have the contact information.
And I’ve gotten several leads from that, and I’ve bought several properties just by telling people that I was interested in buying their property. And in all of those cases it’s usually a non-competitive situation. Nobody else knows the property is for sale except me. I love that kind of scenario.
Mike Hambright: That’s a great tip. When you’re in business you might as well tell people you’re in business, right?
David Krulac: That’s right. Don’t hide your talent under a bushel as they say in the Bible.
