As you're deciding which recipients and information to weed out of your list, there are a few things that you'll want to keep in mind: Don't send mail to owner occupied properties For obvious reasons, people much less likely to sell their primary residence for pennies on the dollar. We're looking for people who own properties that they're disinterested in and/or that they can't afford to keep. Given this, I suggest that you delete any owner occupied properties (where the mailing address and the property address match) from your list. Don't send mail to banks or large financial institutions It is highly unlikely that you'll ever do business directly with a massive corporation like JP Morgan Chase Bank or Wells Fargo. If you see anything that doesn't look like an individual owner or small company, I highly recommend that you delete these recipients from your list. Don't send mail to duplicate owners You will always find that there are certain owners who appear multiple times on your list. Use the sort function to put your recipients in alphabetical order (this is explained in the video above) so you can spot them easily and delete the duplicates. There is no reason for you to send 20 postcards to one recipient just because they own 20 properties. Be smart. Delete any addresses that clearly don't make sense You will also come across address fields that are either not formatted correctly, are missing information, or are blank altogether. If you inadvertently send mail to these addresses, they will be promptly returned to your mailbox. This is your chance to delete these entries before you waste money on them.
