When you’re a land newbie, getting a list can be daunting—where do you go? How do you find one? Do you pay or not pay? It’s the first barrier in this business that you have to learn how to manipulate, but once you do it becomes second nature.

After reading a post in the Motivation & Wealth Creation Group this week that was asking for options and tools available for getting a list, Team Land Geek decided to Round Table the topic in this week’s discussion.

Joining Mark are:

  • Scott Bossman
  • Erik Peterson
  • Mimi Schmidt
  • Mike Zaino
  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd

Listen in as the team delves deep into the options available for you to obtain the lists and offers pro tips on how to make this process as painless as possible. Plus, they review the paid subscription websites, more specifically Agent Pro 247, and let you know if they are worth using.

The data is out there. The important thing is to get 20 names and make that your target day-to-day to get up and running. -Scott Bossman

A few options mentioned are:

  • GIS systems where you can download data
  • Through the county—website or call
  • Outsourcing

Paid subscription websites:

  • Agent Pro 247
  • Data Tree
  • List Source

You have to stop focusing on the expense of it and realize it is an initial investment you are making. -Scott Todd

Today’s episode is full of value and if you’re someone who is serious about land investing but is getting frustrated with finding a list, you won’t want to miss it!

If you’re going to be an entrepreneur, you’re the conductor. You’re the one setting the strategy, this is how we get the list. How much money are you making from getting a list? ZERO. You make nothing getting the list. So if you hire someone to get you the list, great. If you’re going to pay for a list, great. If you’re going to be the technician and build your own list, great. What’s not great is throwing up your hands and saying "oh well, I can’t get a list." -Mark

The After Talk

In short:

  • Apple versus Rolex
  • Surface versus Mac
  • Who is the better host
  • $500 lunches

Scott ends the show with a mic drop...These guys!

TIP OF THE WEEK

Mimi:Here’s a hack around the location glitch in Facebook Marketplace—if your ad isn’t getting views, delete it. Then, when posting new ads, do not put a zip code in the location. Put a big enough city that when you type it out, there’s a thumbnail picture of the city. If there’s no thumbnail picture, then don’t use that location, find a larger city.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Mike: An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. When it comes to investing, nothing will pay off more than educating yourself. Do the necessary research, study, and analysis before making any investment decisions. - Benjamin Franklin

Isn't it time to create passive income so you can work where you want, when you want and with whomever you want?
