I wanted to share a business data directory similar to Real Quest and Data Tree that I recently came across. There are a couple of things that make this invaluable.
I have a larger commercial property I am working on selling. One of the things I wanted to do to get it sold was find a business data directory similar to the data sources we use except it would have developer, renovator, real estate agency and other real estate related companies so I could send them a letter.
Initially, I had a hard time finding something cost effective. Then I came across Salesgenie.com. Maybe some of you have heard of them or are already using a similar resource. For those who are looking for a new way to market in addition to “neighbor letters” I recommend checking them out. For twenty cents a record (I’m sure you could get better bulk deals) I got every real estate developers mailing address in all of Ohio. I also got every real estate company labeled as “investor” “commercial” and “buyers/brokers” across five different counties surrounding my property. I did this all within about 10 minutes after I figured out how it worked.
As my property is larger undeveloped commercial land, contacting these developers seemed like a must. I just didn’t know a way to do it efficiently until now. I will be sending a letter to every developer in the state of Ohio… mind slightly blown… Maybe it’s overkill to send every single one a letter but at the end of the day, it’s not that much out of pocket and people know people.
In addition to mailing addresses, they also provide a contact phone number if there is one available. This is invaluable for those who like to get on the phone to get a property sold. Instead of searching Google for business phone numbers, you can get a list of numbers downloaded right into an excel spreadsheet.
Again, maybe this has been shared and I have missed it. But for those who need/want additional marketing strategies, I recommend you check them out. There are other similar data resources I cam across such as siccode.com but I haven’t had the time to explore yet.
Let me know if you have used or end up using a resource like this. I am interested to hear your experiences.
