I am wanting to start mailing to expired listing. I was considering going after those who have not relisted and where 3-6 months old. Has anyone had sucess doing this and does anyone have a letter that works that they would like to share?

There are three tips to make direct mail to expireds work, Phillip:

1. Interesting, relevant content
Send stuff that matters to the seller. Go easy on ME ME ME self-promotion. Yes, there is time and place for it - later. But first, mail them info that gets their attention and gives them something interesting: market updates, tips on repairs, etc.

2. Consistency
This is where many agents screw up. They give up way to soon. Sometimes an expired is ready to relist right away. But most of the time, it take persistence. Days, weeks, sometimes months. Stay with it. Build relationship and trust over time. It costs pennies and the return can be big if you keep following up.

3. Variety
Some people respond to personal letters, especially if they sound personal and are focused on the seller, NOT the agent.

Some sellers prefer punchy, visual message on a postcard. Sometimes a good expired package does the trick. And often, having a good resume will convert an expired into a listing.

It just depends. And because you can never tell what will work, use them all in your marketing mix.

Just like ReBpoAgent agent said, you WILL get results if you do it daily and stick with it.
