Market Your House For Sale and Get the Phone to Ring Off the Hook
Man, if you have to market your house for sale and you’re looking to get your phone to ring off the hook, then you must watch this video.
You’ve probably read about bandit signs before and how they are one of the best ways to market your house for sale.
And you’ve probably read or heard about how handwritten bandit signs are the absolute best way to market your house for sale!
Do you know why they are the best way to market your house for sale? It’s cause they get your phone to ring off the hook silly!
Watch the video above and I will walk you through step by step how I am actively marketing 2 houses that I have for sale (1 is being put under contract on Saturday, btw. Thanks to my handy work in the video.)
How else do you market your house for sale to get your phone to ring off the hook?
So, the bandit sign police got me…..twice within a couple of weeks! And in 2 different areas to boot.
I decided I wanted to start getting more real estate deals a brewing (I’ve been on hiatus working on the ATM Business course.)
When I want my phone to start ringing what do I do? I put out bandit signs. Love me some bandit signs.
My phone definitely started ringing from my bandit signs. wGood calls and uhhh not so good calls. This is basically my “how to” on how to deal with the bandit sign police.
1st bandit sign police call was in my neck of the woods. BSP: You’re not allowed to put those signs on states roads.
I proceeded to be sweet as pie to the bandit sign police and he then said “well I will let you go out and pick them up instead of having my guys do it cause I know they are expensive. Just try to keep ’em off of the state roads.”
I asked him to elaborate on what a “state road” is and how I can tell. He told me but to tell ya’ll the truth, I honestly looked while driving around but I can’t see any signs that say SR that are posted near speed limit signs.
I never went to pick up my bandit signs. I forget where I put all my bandit signs! The good ones are still up and I even got a deal signed up from my bandit signs last week!)
2nd bandit sign police call: This one was a call from the guy who works in the township where I have my rental property for sale. I put up handwritten bandit signs to try to sell my rental property. This is how this one went down.
He left me a voicemail that said: You can’t have those signs up, they are illegal in the township. You need to come and get them before I take them down. Thank you.
So, me, being me…well I called him 🙂 I was, of course, sweet as pie. Told him I was sorry but I was just trying to sell my house cause my real estate agent sucks (sorry dad hehe) I proceeded to ask him what the rule was for real estate agent signs for the weekends? And if I could do like they do and maybe put out on Friday and pick up Sunday night?
BSP2 said: well, if you have a sign on your property then you can actually put signs around the area that SEND people to your house. That’s the only way it would be legal. The signs have to send them to your property.
I said…ok I will take care of them this weekend. All bandit signs will now send them to my property for sale.
He said ok but he wants to verify to make sure. I’m going to do it anyway and if when he verifies and it’s not the case, well I’ll just ask for forgiveness from the bandit sign police.
Btw, these conversations took me back a few years when I got my very first call from the bandit sign police. It was a woman and I actually went in to see her to get my bandit signs. We struck up a conversation and I left there knowing exactly how to follow the rules of the township and keep putting my bandit signs out!
Did any of you have experiences with the bandit sign police? How did it go down?
So I don’t exactly have a green thumb but if gardening helps me get new ATMs placed then perhaps I’ll pick up the gardening hobby.
Sunday Kathy, her older sister and I were gardening all day at our house. It is so not fun for me, but alas it’s my house too. Well I began to dig out one of our rose bushes because we were moving it.
Next thing you know: CRACK! SPLAT!
I look and there apparently was a robin’s next in there and 3 little robin’s eggs cracked. I felt soooo horrible (I’m a huge animal person.) Anyway, Kathy and her sister told me to stop with the bush and get some lunch for all of us.
I head to a local place around us that makes cheese steaks. They have a minimum for credit card orders but I forgot what it was. I ask the lady. She said $10.
I say no problem. Then I follow that up with…..are you ready for this? “Have you guys ever thought about putting an ATM in here?”
Well she proceeded to tell me that they use to have one but it was always out of order and the ATM owners never kept it filled with cash. So they got rid of it.
I told her about how I own a small, local ATM business and I live 5 minutes away so keeping it in service and loaded with cash isn’t an issue.
She was thrilled and gave me the owners name and phone number. Now I left the owner today and I don’t know if we’ll end up putting a machine there or not, but the point of this entire post was for you to learn this key phrase: “Have you ever thought about putting an ATM in here?”
I’m very, very proud to finally present the ATM Business Blueprint: Your Guide To A Profitable ATM Business That Provides A LIfetime Of Passive Income.
I can honestly say that I’ve been through a few different ATM programs and even though I’m biased, I know that I am, I really can say honestly that this is hands down the best, most comprehensive ATM course out there.
Who is the ATM Business Blueprint for?
The ATM business itself is so versatile and so easy to implement within your current situation that this business is perfect if you are any of the following people:
Working a 9 to 5 job but eventually want out
Always wanted to be involved in real estate but didn’t want the hassles of tenants and toilets
Are currently involved in real estate and want another passive income stream (you will begin to consider your ATMs like mini-rental properties…..only you just make start liking them better because you don’t have to deal with any tenants or toilets)
You are looking for ways to add income to your retirement account
Or maybe you just simple want to add some extra income into your bank account every month
Literally, the ATM Business Blueprint is for anyone that falls into any of the above categories. Â One warning though: Â this course does involve some work on your part.
You are not going to get into the ATM Business and make a ton of money and not have to do anything. Â This course is not a magic little pill to swallow. Â What this course is however, is an exact guide to how you can start a profitable ATM business that provides you with a lifetime of passive income. Â All you have to do is follow along and take action!
I give you 3 free ATM training videos plus, I even include my exact “road map” (or diagram if you will) of my actual ATM business. Â This is the information, tools and techniques that I use everyday to make money in my ATM business.
So we all know jobs suck and freedom rules! (Well a lot of us think jobs suck anyway.) I don’t know if you know about the Diva Money Club yet, but I’m going to do a quick review for you.
I mentioned the Diva Money Club a month or so ago and I’ve been involved as a member, or Diva, since they opened their virtual doors. Anyway, the gist of the Diva Money Club is they want to help all Diva’s and Divo’s (yes, men you are allowed to join too) get out of their jobs within 12 months and they do it in 2 ways; real estate and online marketing. Basically they will help you replace a $50,000 a year salary with one or both of those methods within 12 months. (Ok so if you make more than $50k a year…don’t worry, I’m sure they will help you make that happen too!)
Who are the Diva’s? Well a few of them you may be familiar with as they are friends of mine that you’ve seen on this blog before. The other ladies I’ve come to really like and have become friends with as well. Here is the breakdown for you:
Steph Davis – you may know her from FlipThisWholesaler.net She’s the blogging and wholesaling diva.
Shae Bynes – you may know her from GoodFaithInvesting.com She’s the real estate Diva and online diva as well (Plus she’s quickly becoming the private money diva because of all of the private money she’s been getting lately.)
Julie Broad – you may know her from RevNYou.com She’s the real estate and online marketing Diva. She’s from Canada, eh? hehehe I love doing that with Candian folks.
Susan Lassiter-Lyons – you may know her from well a lot of things and most likely theinvestorinsights.com Susan has done it all. She’s the Diva of Diva’s. She’s made loads of money in online marketing, loads of money in commercial real estate, loads of money syndicating real estate deals and she’s raised over $26 million in private money (oh and yes, I said million!)
As you can see there are some real heavy hitters running the show at the Diva Money Club.
Now, what do I think of it? Well if you know me and I’d like to think that you do after spending this much time with me thus far, you know that I’m not about b.s. I don’t care for it, I don’t have time for it and I don’t think you deserve it. So I’ll never hold back what I feel (sometimes that’s good, sometimes uhh not so good 😉 )
Anyway, here is the scoop: I have learned so much from just Susan alone these past couple of months that she alone is worth it. You all know that I’m launching my ATM course, well a lot of questions that I have I ask Susan to help me with because she’s launched tons of courses online. Actually, all of the Diva’s have launched some type of course online. I think Susan may have the most, but Julie has a lot too. Anywho, I don’t just get Susan’s feedback…I get everyones. Plus, I get the feedback of the other members of the DMC.
It’s kind of cool….we’ve all became a tight nit bunch and we’re constantly trying to help one another out; whether it’s critiquing websites or sales pages or helping with wholesaling contracts or investor friendly title companies we’re ALL there to lend a hand.
Are they teaching some stuff that I already know? Of course. But that’s ok, not everyone else knows it. I just don’t spend time on that stuff. I spend time on the forum in the sections that I want to learn more about and I spend time watching the video modules that I want to learn about. Oh yeah I forgot to mention, not only is there a forum but there are video modules for real estate investing and video modules for online marketing. It’s awesome!
Plus, they have extra bonus they’re always adding and they have something called Deep Dive Trainings. They are just extra video trainings that they share. It’s really great stuff!
So bottom line….I give it 2 thumbs up. If you’re looking to eventually leave your job or even if you love your job but you’re looking for some extra income then you have to check out their 3-part free video training at the Diva Money Club.
It’s free training! It can’t hurt to give it a listen, can it? I promise you’ll be blown away. Check out the training videos for the Diva Money Club here. And then I would love for you to come back here and let me know what you think!
Check out this ATM Video Vocab that I did in Atlantic City, NJ a few weekends ago. This is my first ATM video vocab using the Imovie program from my Macbook Pro. I’m still learning the program but so far, so good. I really like it. Enjoy and of course, post your comments and questions below!
Happy New Year everyone! This year is going to rrrrrrrrrrrrock for sure!
I had a reader, James, ask an awesome question this new year. James wrote:
“Carey I have the money to buy an atm. But i dont have a way to put the money in it
monthly i dont have access to a private lender what do you suggest.”
Here was my response to James:
Happy New Year! OK so you have money for an ATM and you have a location
too, right? You just don’t have the money to put in the machine or to
load the machine monthly or weekly, etc. Is that correct?
If that all seems about accurate then what you are going to need James is
a partner. You are going to need a partner who is willing to fill the ATM
when it gets low om cash and who has about 1k to 1.5k to start off with to
put in the machine. Of course this person should keep in mind that the
less the put in the machine upfront the more they will have to fill it
When you find this person you just agree to split the surcharge fees 50/50
or whatever you both agree to. You can even ask the business owner of the
location where you want to put this machine if they want to be this
Hope this helps. Kudos to you for wanting to take action!”
So you see folks there’s always a way to make things happen. Partnering with the business owner of the site location where you want to place your ATM is a really great idea. Of course, you can’t pitch them 100% hands off! But that’s ok, if you know going in that you need them at a partner you obviously are going to pitch the partner 50% partner angle instead of the 100% hands off angle, right?
Here’s to you creating some extra passive income from the ATM business and other areas in 2011!!
P.S. I think the potential partnership with the gentleman from Canada may be able to be worked out. My ISO (this will be an ATM Video Vocab episode lol) and my attorney don’t think it will be a problem. Waiting to get the final OK from both parties.
This is a new video series that I’m starting to help folks learn more about the ATM Business. It will be great information for those looking to get into the ATM business but it will also be useful info for all of your ATM users out there 😉
Please feel free to post any suggestions for videos that you may want for future episodes below! Thanks and have a great day!
Ok guys and gals it’s time! Time for you to buckle down and grab YOUR financial freedom. It’s right there just waiting for you…..you can do it and you can do it a whole lot sooner than you thought possible!
Today Shae launched her: Financial Freedom GPS and I have to tell you it is awesome! If you know me well at all or even semi well you know that I don’t refer crap. If I refer it and I’m willing to put my name on the line for it then I truly believe in the product. Actually, I even wrote a testimonial for Shae as Kathy and I have been working the plan since October 1st (yes, the beginning of this month.)
This is a must have guide if you want to leave your job (aka the rat race) or maybe you don’t want to leave your job but you want to have options in life….a whole lot more options in life than most folks have. Or maybe you just want a great new step-by-step way to get out of debt and start putting more $$$$ into your pocket! Folks this ebook really is worth the small investment…I can’t tell you enough.
