Sample #1

I noticed your 3/2 property for rent on CraigsList. I have some folks that I am working with that are looking for something they rent but that they will ultimately buy. Would you consider renting the property with an option to buy (lease option)?

Thanks and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Sample #2

I just came across your 4 bedroom, 2 bath property for rent. Would you consider selling it? I am looking for more investment properties that I can rent where the numbers make sense.

Also, are you looking for more properties? I occasionally come across a property either at a time when I have more than I can handle or that just doesn’t quite fit my own portfolio’s criteria. If you’d be interested in those, let me know and I can find out a little more about what you’re looking for so I can keep an eye open for you as well.
