Even if you’re not a “short sale” agent, couldn’t you use the Debt Relief Act expiration as a reason to contact your past clients, friends, family, and old leads? Send a simple letter or email notifying them of the approaching deadline and a simple offer to call you if they… 1) want to buy a short sale property, or 2) are thinking of selling but are afraid they’re underwater and don’t know if they qualify for a short sale. They may not be ready to buy… They may not qualify for a short sale… But you’re demonstrating your professionalism and positioning yourself as the “caring and competent” real estate expert worthy of their business and referrals.  When the time is right, they’ll reach out to YOU to buy a home or to list their home. Want a way to do that every month, in 1-minute?  Click here to learn about our Service For Life!® real estate newsletter that you can now use in less time than it takes you to calculate how much business you’ve lost by not keeping in regular, value-oriented contact with every person you know.
