There are so many different ways you can find motivated sellers but this time we will focus on the online classified media portion.  When ever looking for sellers it's always best to throw a hook out in the market and see what you can reel in.  Whenever you go to sites like Craigslist, your goal is to place ads.  Craigslist has been the classified ad titan on the internet for the past 6-7 years and it still generates a ton of traffic from people looking for items, jobs and services.


Studies show that the classified titan gets millions of page views everyday and a portion of that traffic comes from sellers that have properties they want to unload.  Your goal should be to come up with a few different ads and post them on sites like Craigslist, Backpage and Kijiji.

You want to make sure you post your ads everyday.  You might only get one lead per week or one lead every other week, but the leads are usually high quality.  Plus those sites are free to advertise on so it only makes sense to use those resources as long as they are available.

The section of the sites you want to place your ads on are in the real estate services.  On Craigslist you need to post one ad three times everyday.  The reason you should post that often is because the site lets you post only three ads in the services section per day and the other reason there are so many other people posting their ads for different services that you want to stay close to the top of the page.

Next time I will be going over the different types of ads that you want to post to get the best response for your effort.
