Marketing to Off Market Sellers
with Chuck Phillips
We are excited to announce that Chuck Phillips with CRS Data (http://atlantareia.com/business-members/crs-data/) will be the guest speaker at this month's Peachtree City EPIC Group meeting. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 26th at 6:30PM at the Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector (https://goo.gl/maps/qsGF8) in Peachtree City, GA. Chuck will be showing us how to use CRS Data's proprietary software to find and organize all the important property information you need so you can make informed decisions in all your real estate investing transactions.
CRS Data, a leading consolidator of information gleaned from public records provides Data to MLS Services, Realtors, Appraisers, Banks/Lenders, Government Agencies, as well as investors.
Chuck has worked with Courthouse Retrieval System (CRS) for over 11 years. He has worked with all types of individuals from Investors, Realtors, Mortgage Companies, Banks, Surveyors, and Developers on how to utilize public record information. He is licensed to teach "Using Public Records to Enhance Your Business" by the Tennessee Realtors Association in TN. Public records can be used to answer the following questions:
Where do you find off market properties? How do you get in touch with people who don't know they want to sell? How do you become the only buyer? How do you get contact information on a vacant property? Where do you get the information to become the neighborhood expert? Where do you get a mailing list of absentee owners? How do you get a list of owners of multiple properties? And Much Much More. Public records are free to look at from state or county sites using the program provided by that organization. Most of the time all you can obtain is the Owners Name, Address, Tax Information, Parcel Number, Year/Effective Year Built, Lat/Long Information if the county has GIS maps, etc. The program from CRS, with the various Search Filters, allows you to sift through this data to arrive at the results you would like. If you are looking for out of state owners with a certain type of improvement, square footage, and year built in a certain zip/street, this program can filter out that information. If you need a home with an existing mortgage, this information can be found.
All of this is public information, but the Engine CRS has with the various filters makes it very easy to find and export to Excel for marketing purposes. If you find a home and need to know the comps around the home, this can easily be found based on date, distance, and time of sale. This is another feature any investor needs depending on the type of exit strategy they have for the property.
Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to save yourself TONS of time researching properties!
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
