Here’s My ‘Burned House’ Letter

511 comments

I have a question for you…

Have you ever driven by a burned-out house and wondered about it? Wondered how you might approach that owner, acquire the property and fix it up?

Well, you’re in the right place at the right time… because today, I’m going to share what I like to call my “burned house” letter. And not only am I going to show you the letter and explain how to use it, you get to download a copy for free.

JP Moses here, and I’ve used this letter for years quite successfully, and now it’s yours to use as well.

Uh, you’re welcome, my friend!

Now this is important…

You’ll want to keep in mind that you’re stepping into a rather delicate situation. This homeowner has suffered a great emotional loss, and perhaps, may have even lost a loved one or suffered an injury due to this fire.

So, a word to the wise is to handle with care. And as you’ll see in my video below, my letter can help you do exactly that, plus I’ve given you a few more helpful tidbits as well.

Here are a few other things you’ll take away from my video lesson about this letter:

Finding burned-out houses

Who to contact

How to create the best tone for the letter

How to present yourself and your company entity

How to create a subtle but effective call to action

 Enjoy…

Here’s how to download my Burned House letter...

Step 1. Leave a comment below with your thoughts. What you like about the letter, don’t like, or just tell us how awesome we are for giving this to you at no cost 🙂

Step 2. Once your comment is posted – Chuck Norris will award you with a free download link for the letter. For real.

Remember…

Obviously, you’re not going to find a burned-out house on every block, maybe not even in every neighborhood, but they are out there. Have your birddogs and other people keep an eye out for you.

So now, when you locate one, you won’t be wondering about what to do and how to make a deal with it… you’ll know exactly what to do, and in the process, you’ll be helping a family and an entire neighborhood.

 

JP Moses

JP Moses is a roughly-hewn man-child who jumped into REI back in Y2K and full time in '02. After many twisty turns over the years, from landlording to short sales to rehabs to Realtoring to lease options to REOs to notes to owner financing, blah, blah, blah… he finally stuck his flag deep into wholesaling. Today JP's Memphis-area operation's wholesaled somewhere north of 400+ transactions and actively turns 3-7 houses a month. He also really digs helping others and pours a ton of his heart and soul into helping his fellow real estate investors from his own REI and business-building experiences.

You Guys Are AWESOME! And I really mean it. I have learned so much practical information and knowledge from this site. My first purchase as an investor was a “burned house”. Talk about tried by fire it was an experience to remember. At the time I just happened to stumble upon the property in my hunt for a house to buy. Being a novice naturally I jumped into the deal head and heart first. I was so excited it never dawned on me at the time that I needed to have someone to assist me with the project. Nevertheless 9 months later yep you heard right 9 months later I finally sold the property making a total profit of $22,000 without using any of my money. The project was extensive. I would not recommend a newbie tackling a severely burned house but on the other hand burned houses can truly contain unseen cash underneath the charred and damaged remains of a fire.

Two personal fires in family home ;the last one was a total resulting in complete rebuild. took over a year to settle. also tried to sell home with undisclosed attic fire that the homeowners patched up and kept the insurance money. maybe if they had received a letter like this they might have made a better decision and not tried to pull a fast one. I’m in Real Estate and would like to offer my fellow agents in the area a different approach. Thanks for the thoughtful idea.

Hi Patrick,
It so happens that I’m a real estate investor and have been intermittently in the past. My own home burned down June 24th, 2016. I think that I have experienced considerably more problems, delays, mental anguish, changing attitudes about the process and recovery than most people have in these circumstances routinely have. No one was injured. It was an electrical induced fire in the attic, and began as I was sitting at my computer at 2:00 PM at the other end of the house.

I like your letter because of its brevity and scanning ease. I’ve received two or three letters offering to buy my house “as is” in the last 6 months. All were 4 or 5 line comments that did not offer sympathy or options.

I discovered that I was completely ignorant as to how to mentally and emotionally manage such a disaster when it hit me unexpectedly, quickly, and while my wife was in intensive care at the hospital for a fatal medical problem.

My thoughts for you are: I think I’ll write my own letter like yours and send it to you to use if you want to. I write articles and books and am a retired medical doctor. I will be writing an ebook on the topic of how owners should manage this tragedy. It’s quite involved and much more than can be told here.

Advice: I had a lot of close contact with firemen that day and learned a lot. They told me that in Las Vegas they averaged 4 or 5 house fires every day. So in this city of over a million people there must be over 120 burned down or severely damaged properties per month here. It’s a unique niche.

The firemen and fire investigators keep detailed information that they got from me and the firemen that stopped the fire before everything went up in smoke. That has to be filed somewhere in this city. My house had an asbestos rating of 2% so hasmet took over the property right away and kept me out of the house, asbestos dust, I was told. Our house was built in 1955 and wiring then was absent a ground 3rd strand.

My thought is that one needs to find out where the fire investigators file their info they get. My best guess is somewhere in the assessor’s office, because one way or another they become directly involved. It also involves city services, housing building permits and construction regulations/codes.

Insurance is paying for the rehab on my home, and upgrades. We had changed insurers 8 months prior to the burndown, and they have been borderline good to me.

I’m still not over the grief aspect of both things happening at the same time, my wife passing away and house burned. The reporters from the news media were there at the time of the fire taking photos. I asked them not to publicize my fire because the nurses and hosp. personnel might have told my wife about it—they didn’t. That’s all Linda would have needed along with all the bad medical news.

Your letter is very important for anyone investing in residential housing today.

I think this might come in handy for certain homes in my area. I sure this won’t work for many as some will definitely file through their insurance company for the repairs. But there is those who’s homes did not have adequate insurance in which an adjuster was not successful on their behalf that it might work for.

By the way, do you also have a buyer, “we buy houses” and sellers letter you would like to send me.

It takes a bad situation by helping victims giving them the option of a clean break from dealing with the painful loss and giving them a clean start.

Hey JP, thanks for sharing this. I like that it’s just very honest and upfront, no hype, but also conveys your sincere empathy for the homeowner’s situation. We as investors always have to remember that these are real people with real lives that we’re reaching out to. And having your home burned has to be right up there as one of the most awful situations to go through in life.

I look forward to using this letter when I happen to come across these unfortunate situations.

Also, thanks again for all the training you offer on your site. I’ve now subscribed to 3 different approaches and I am implementing all of them!

Thanks again for all you do.

Your letter looks very personal, as you said, No hype/ sales pitch. It’s just an informative letter offering a helpful alternative to rebuilding their own house. The letter explains who you are,( We are), and what we can do to help them, if they so choose, no pressure.
Thanks for helping your fellow REI hopefuls to try a different venture. We have looked at burned houses and wondered how to approach the whole idea.

Great letter.

I had a fire at my personal residence back in 2012. I was an emotional reck. I had to figure out were my family and I were going to stay and how to salvage what was left of the house. It was a very stressful time.

If I had received this letter I would have definitely considered selling. We chose to rebuild but in hindsight i should have taken the insurance money and fixed up another place and left the difference in the bank. If I had sold the house it would have been much needed extra cash in the bank.

This letter clearly states your intentions upfront in a sincere manner that would have definitely got my attention.

I like the wording of the letter and the explanation of the reasoning behind the letter. However, I believe the background music provided ads a connotation not befitting of the subject matter. But, then, this of course is my own personal opinion. Thank you.

Thank you, for the notice about the letter. This adds a new niche, to our businesses’ portfolio. Even though; I am more of a direct and to the point investor. I do work with people, who can use the heartfelt tone of this material, to help out people in distress. Personally I have never gone through the loss, of a burned home. But if I had ever experienced it; I would want someone to approach me with some tact, and consideration. I look forward, to receiving the actual letter. Onward and upward. 2017 will become, what each individual makes of it.

Thanks for the letter. We lost our house to a fire and considered selling it as is instead of cleaning up the mess and rebuilding it. Luckily there was a rental house 4 doors down so we were close to watch the rehab and keep things from being stolen. It was a huge undertaking even for an experienced rehabber as I had family and pets to consider.
