How To Generate A Blind Offer Package (for Land Investing)

IMPORTANT NOTE: We only recommend that you send out blind offers in an area where you have already done deals. If you have not done deals in an area yet we recommend only sending out the Neutral Letter Campaign followed by the regular Offer Package for only those who request offers from you.

To generate a Blind Offer campaign first import your data with the optional ‘Offer Amount‘ and ‘Back Taxes‘ data included in your import file, and import the records under the ‘Pending Preliminary Research‘ status.

Go go the ‘Generate Documents‘ page and toggle open the ‘Blind Offers‘ section. Click the .DOC or .PDF options to download the following documents:

  • Blind Offer Cover Letter
  • Offer
  • Exhibit A (Optional)
  • Envelope Labels

We put the Blind Offer Cover Letter, Offer into a manila envelope with a printed label on the outside with the mailing address and mail that to the owners. Here is a list of the resources we recommend to complete this package.

NOTE: You will get a much lower acceptance rate with this type of campaign in comparison to the Neutral Letter/ Offer campaign.

When you are done printing your Blind Offers, click the blue ‘Bulk Update Records‘ button to move these records into the ‘Blind Offer Sent‘ status.

How To Add Multiple Owners To A Property Owner Record

To add multiple property owners to a land, or house ownership record click on the ‘Edit‘ link to the right of the property record:

Then make sure that the ‘Individual‘ option is selected under the question ‘Owner of Record> This property is owned by:‘, and the ‘Yes‘ option is selected under the question ‘Owner of Record> Are there other owners on title?‘:

Enter the name of the others on title under the 2nd through 5th owner name fields.

NOTE: Typically we don’t deal with properties that have more than five owners on title, but if you do have a property with more parties than five you can either add the remaining names under the ‘5th Owner’s Last Name‘ field, or you can mark the record as a ‘Company/ Entity‘ then put all the owners into the ‘Company Name‘ field.

How To Move A Land Deal Over To The House Deal Section and Vice Versa

Sometimes the County may have indexed a property incorrectly in the list landowners that you obtained and initially uploaded into the Investment Dominator, or a person builds a home on a lot after you get the data from the County. In these scenarios, you will need to move that improperly indexed record from the ‘Land Deals‘ section over to the ‘House Deals‘ section so that it can be properly processed as a house deal (which has a completely different process than the land area).

  • To move the record over you simply look up the record under the ‘Land Deals‘ section and click on the ‘Edit‘ option next to it.
  • Under the ‘Property Information‘ section select ‘House‘ from the dropdown menu called ‘Property Type‘.

    NOTE: Selecting ‘Mobile Home‘, or ‘Commercial Property‘ will also move this record to the ‘House Deals‘ section.
  • Click the ‘Update Record‘ button to save the changes and move the record from the ‘Land Deals‘ tab over to the ‘House Deals‘ tab.

Company Emails

You can set up to 3 company emails in the Investment Dominator system under the ‘Customize> Company Information‘ screen.

Company Email

The ‘Company Email‘ field is the default email address that a user can set for the company. The system sends notifications to this email address when someone fills out the forms on the ‘Sell Your Land‘, ‘Sell Your House‘ or ‘Contact Us‘ pages of your ‘Buying Site‘.

This email address is also used as the ‘From/ Reply’email address in the notification email that is sent out to the owners when they submit the ‘Sell Your Land’ or ‘Sell Your House‘ forms IF they include their email address (optional) in the form submission.

Offer Email (Optional)

The ‘Offer Email‘ address is printed by default on the P.S. line of your Offer Cover Letters.

NOTE: If you do not configure a unique ‘Offer Email‘ address then the system will just use your ‘Company Email‘ address instead.

Selling Site Email (Optional)

When someone fills out the Property Interest Form on a Property Listing posted on your Selling Site the ‘Selling Site Email‘ address is sent a notification about the inquiry.

NOTE: If you do not configure a unique ‘Selling Site Email” address then the system will just use your ‘Company Email‘ address instead.
