    Hi Jkoopers,

    Here is a quote from this post.

    "From all the information I have obtained (including my own historical data), 1~2% success rate is about the norm. The success rate I am referring to just people who call, not necessarily if they take you up on your service. Anything above that would be very abnormal. "

    I sent out postcards 2 years ago to 1 neighborhood, i think there was about 500 , i have 5 houses i take care of now in there, it doesnt sound like much but postcards are inexpensive and easy to look at . 5 houses paid them off after 1 week

    I tried the whole postcard trip last spring to five local lakes, hoping to get the cottages. I mailed out two seperate kinds of postcards, instead of just one variety. Well, never received a single response. It was very disappointing.
