A MAN convicted of plotting to rape a real estate agent in an empty house wrote in his diary about how much he enjoyed 'the hunt' for potential victims.

Frank Yeager appeared in court appealing his 2013 sentence.

He was convicted for his plot to lure a female real estate agent to one of the properties she was selling to rape her.

He kept a chilling diary with entires about his plot and drawings of his rape fantasies.

Disturbingly, he had a list of 200 local estate agents police believe he was considering as potential targets.

Details of where they worked, home addresses, churches they attended and Facebook pages were all noted on the list.

"I truly enjoy the hunt and cannot wait for my prize," one entry read, according to local news channel NBC 4.

"If you are reading this I found a realtor woman and raped her. I have been planning and have wanted this my whole life."

Police said he treated the hunt for victims like 'full time work'.

He was convicted over an incident in November 2012.

He visited an unidentified real estate office asking to be shown a show home he knew was empty.

The female estate agent said he made her feel uncomfortable so she told him he could check out the house by himself.

He returned to the office 45 minutes later and claimed he had found a leak in an upstairs bedroom, and told the estate agent that if she returned to the property with him he would show her.

She was still suspicious and refused to go with him, and he exited the office abruptly when her male colleague returned.

The event disturbed her so much that she reported him to police.

A 'rape kit' of two handguns, four knives, rope and a metal chain were found in his car by police.

They believe he had been planning the rape for five months.

When interrogated by police he confessed that he had lied about the leak so he could 'take advantage' of the estate agent.
