You may not know this, but there are many property owners in NYC who may be contemplating the idea of selling, but just haven’t gotten around to listing their house yet. So, if you’re in the market as a seller’s agent who is trying to attract new prospects or as a buyer who has a hard time finding properties for sale in areas with low inventory, these would-be sellers form one category you should seriously consider.
How to reach potential property sellers and outsmart the competition:
Real estate data provider PropertyShark has created an online tool named Mailing/Data Lists which helps real estate professionals and buyers alike generate property and owner-mailing lists for any targeted area in NYC and other states. Based on these lists, you can mail potential property sellers directly before others do and inform them of your interest in their house.
This tool is particularly useful in competitive real estate markets where it’s essential to be on top of the game if you want to get good results.
Mailing/Data Lists of Commercial and Residential Properties
This is one of the best lead generating tools for agents, developers, and investors but it can be successfully used by buyers, too. If you’re house hunting but you simply cannot find anything for sale in an area you are interested in, the Mailing/Data Lists service can help out as well.
Build Data Lists in 3 steps
Let’s say you’d like to see how many condos between 600 and 1,200 square feet in Glendale have not changed hands in the past 5 years (hint: usually, many property owners might already be considering selling). All you need to do, after you clicked the Build Property Data List button, is to:
• Select the targeted region;
• Select the building class;
• Select other advanced criteria that will help you narrow your search.
The final list will display a series of valuable information such as:
• How many properties of the type you selected exist;
• How many properties are owner occupied and how many are not;
• The names of the owners of the properties and their addresses;
• The properties’ assessed values and addresses.
You may also choose one of the many Predefined Lists, which are ready-to-use property lists based on popular criteria, created in order to ease your work.
Agents, Boost Your Direct Mailing Efforts with Mailing Lists
PropertyShark’s ready-to-mail lists of property owners are particularly useful to brokers as they help them conduct targeted marketing campaigns. So if your goal is to have turnkey lists and Avery labels showing the properties’ addresses and owner names, simply choose the Mailing Lists option and you’ll have them ready within minutes.
