What is an Absentee Owner Letter?
An “Absentee Owner Letter” is a type of direct mail marketing used primarily in the real estate industry. It’s a letter sent by real estate investors or agents to owners of properties who do not reside at those properties. The key characteristics of an Absentee Owner Letter include:
- Target Audience: The letter is specifically aimed at absentee owners – individuals who own a property but do not live there. These properties can be rentals, vacation homes, or properties inherited or acquired in some other way.
- Purpose: The primary goal is often to persuade the owner to consider selling the property. Investors see absentee-owned properties as potential opportunities, assuming that the owner might be more inclined to sell, especially if they’re facing management challenges, high taxes, or other issues.
- Content: The letter typically includes a brief introduction of the sender, a statement expressing interest in the property, and a call to action. It may mention the benefits of selling to the sender, such as a quick, hassle-free sale process, cash offers, or the ability to close on the owner’s timeline.
In addition to Absentee Owner Letters, we also offer I Have a Buyer Letters.
Our letters are printed on durable 24# paper, single or double-sided. Placed in a #10 envelope for a personal

Our automated seller valuation postcards allow you to mail postcards with unique links or QR codes for recipients to find out how much their home is worth.
Each link is unique to the address and the system captures the recipient’s email address so you know who is requesting seller valuations.
