Top 10 Lead Sources For Realtors

1. Lead Sources For Realtors

Facebook Ads

Real Estate Facebook Ads Marketing

Running facebook ads is a proven real estate lead generation technique that generates buyer leads and seller leads for agents.

So many agents have had great success with these.  Even, the leads generated years ago, continue to pay great dividends for them.

If the potential lead does not buy or list right now the agent simply places the lead in their CRM and e-Zine (Monthly Strategic Newsletter) and stays top of mind.  When the potential client is ready – they know who to contact!

6.  Lead Sources For Realtors

HUD Home Marketing

I spoke with an agent just last week and she told me this is one of the primary ways she generated buyer leads when she started as an agent.

She said she heard it from me (it's one way I generated many leads and closed real estate deals) and so she started marketing HUD homes for lead generation. She closed 4 transactions from HUD marketing in her first year of business.  And, that was just the start.  

Those closed transactions bring referrals and more transactions down the road.  

What doesn't close immediately continues to be an ongoing source of leads in which to follow up, place in your e-Zine (strategic newsletter) and CRM.

Testimonials For Lead Generation

Real estate testimonials are a great lead source for Realtors.   Third party endorsements are one of the top ways to build trust and confidence in you and your business.

Testimonials can be the pivoting point needed to convert someone in your sphere or searching online into a lead and client.

These strategies help you obtain testimonials and convert them to leads.

Home Search Platforms For Buyer Lead Generation

Online platforms designed to generate buyer leads can be a great source of leads.  Potential buyers use the home search feature on these platforms and often request more information.

On the Zillow platform, you can showcase yourself and your business.

On Zillow, you can:

• Create a profile

• Add client reviews and past sales on your Zillow profile

• Become a Zillow Premier Agent.  The Zillow Premier Agent program allows you to purchase buyer leads.

Another popular buyer lead source for Realtors is Realtor.com. Their Connections Plus program puts you in touch with home buyers searching on the Realtor.com platform.

9. Lead Sources For Realtors

Farm Busy Streets

Busy Road With Houses and Cars On It

I stumbled on this by accident but over the years I learned it was a great source of leads!  After sharing this with other agents they've generated leads and closings from this technique.

Part of your marketing efforts should be farming busy streets.  When you get a listing, it's a free billboard for you.  As a sidenote, have your photo on your listing signs.  Research shows that people are more prone to contact an agent/call on a sign that has the agent's photo on it.

This exposure is priceless.   You'll definitely generate plenty of calls and sales leads from those calling on your listing signs on the busy streets!

This is just one unique lead generating idea. Read these other unique real estate lead generation ideas here that most aren't doing.
