Are any of you using a local person to call, email, etc FSBO's and FRBO's from CraigsList and FSBO websites?  I am not asking if you're using a VA from another country, but a local person.

 

If so, are you paying $X per Prospect Sheet turned in, a set fee or percentage of the profit (if you close), or a combination, and how much do you pay?

 

My son is unemployed, and I thought I could pay him to do this marketing for me.

 

Any thoughts, comments or suggestions ...???

 

Thanks,

Hello, Lynn.  I haven't tried the local help route.  I fear if I do their union rep will come calling, demanding better pay and health care. :rolleyes:

As for hiring your son, pay him with room and board, throw in a meal plan, and offer access to the laundry room. :D

Of course, I'm not being fully serious.  But my gut tells me that not too many locals are going to work for the same wages that someone overseas will accept.
