Marketing directly to property owners is a proven strategy to get great deals on real estate. In addition, working directly with an owner enables creative financing solutions. Brad Smotherman focuses on direct to owner marketing strategies to find deals and create attractive terms.
Brad has used direct mail, cold calling, text messages, and paid online ads to find deals. Over time, he has evolved his approach and now has a stream of qualified leads reaching out to him to buy their properties. Brad is an investor and mentor with a seven-figure flipping business, operating in 15 states. In addition, he hosts a Top 100 business podcast, Investor Creator. In this episode, Brad shares how he did his first deal, structures owner-financing, how he analyzes and evolves his marketing strategy, and how he buys properties without making an offer.
