Hey there, I've got a winning strategy for dealing with expired listings and for sale by owners:
In today's age, people often ignore unknown calls. So, why not consider a more effective approach? Cold texting can be a game-changer, and adding a personal touch through video texts sets you apart.
Let's talk about expired listings. Craft a concise cold text, incorporating a hyperlink for more info.

Many people who conduct a sale are preparing to relocate or sell the home, which is the reason for my question. Also my office as several buyers interested in the neighborhood. So if you'd consider an offer in your home, I'd love to have a chance to chat at your earliest convenience."
