“I love to knock on sellers’ doors,” said no one, ever! (Thanks for the great line, Dorsie Boddiford.)
Over the years, I’ve shown hundreds of real estate investors how to knock on sellers’ doors. Many times I’ve said the alpha and omega of real estate investing is getting face-to-face with lots of sellers and making tons of written offers. Experience has taught me that the fastest, cheapest and most effective way to get face-to-face with sellers is to simply knock on their doors.
One key reason door-knocking is so effective is because you virtually have no competition from other real estate investors. For example, yesterday, I was out with Donn Myers. By days end, we’d been to thirty or forty houses that had a For Sale sign in the yard. How many other real estate investors’ cards did we find at those houses? Just one.
Don’t get the wrong idea; door-knocking is not all…
