Targeting Expired Listings

The other day I wrote a blog about getting a head start on Expired listings.  I was intrigued by the variety of responses to the post.  Some folks had either never heard of it, or didn't approve of it - others were interested in adding another "arrow to the quiver".  One had even encountered this approach and had developed a great "counter" technique to this aggressive, yet totally ethical, marketing approach.

The question I have is, if you are one of the folks who targets Expired Listings because you know that the owners want to sell (otherwise they would not have been listing their home in the first place), why wouldn't you want to beat the onslaught of agents who contact the Sellers the day after expiration?

It may not be a successful approach all the time, but this, as we know, is a numbers game!
