You likely already know how much time and effort is required to track down information required to capture leads from expired, for sale by owner, and foreclosure listings, which is why you should consider using real estate solutions. Sometimes real estate agents free up some of their time by hiring an assistant to research the real estate leads for them in order to gain the contact information but this can be a costly expense because an assistant could be better put to use for other tasks. However, with technology that does all of that work without user input, you can save both time and money.
When you just have an office assistant to help you track down contact information for expired listings and foreclosures, you may be wasting valuable time and money that you could be using to list a new client. Without technology to help you, you or one of your office workers has to do all of the reviewing and researching by hand, after the listings have been reviewed and evaluated.
Performing real estate lead research in this way demands a lot of energy, time and money which could be much better spent doing something else when you allow real estate solutions software to do the hard work for you. So when the FSBO, foreclosure, and expired listings come available, the software will do information searching for you and deliver a name, phone number, and other relevant information along with the MLS listing.
As a result, you can sleep through the night while the software does all of the hard lead work for you. This means you only need to come in the next morning and get to work. This can give you an advantage over your competitors because you can start making phone calls before they can even find the phone number of the listing owner. You may often lose the expired listing lead if you are not the very first person to make the phone call.
When you use software for real estate solutions, the expired, FSBO, and foreclosure listings will all be delivered to you with the contact numbers attached. This greatly increases your likelihood of gaining new clients because your lead approach will be superior to all of the other agents’ approaches. Because a computer will be doing tasks for you, you can free up time of your own and of your assistant to allow both of you to use your energy on tasks that can better serve the business.
