Get more deals through the app DealMachine. David Lecko explains how it makes it easy to find and contact potential sellers.

David created DealMachine in 2017 when he was new to real estate investing himself. He knew from reading that the best way to find off-market deals was to go driving for dollars and send direct-mail. He drove around, manually wrote down the addresses of distressed properties, and sent mail to the addresses he wrote down. One day, he realized he missed out on a deal because he failed to follow up with his leads. He knew he needed a solution to automate the process. So he wrote the first line of code that became DealMachine. Shortly after, he acquired his first rental property through driving for dollars and went on to build a $2 million rental portfolio with the DealMachine app. David also co-hosts the DealMachine Real Estate Investing Podcast, which helps listeners start their journey to financial freedom through real estate.
