Real estate is an asset that keeps on growing in its value over time. It’s also considered to be one of the most important assets for people of all demographics. For the average home buyer, investing on a property is one of the most important decisions to make in life as they’ll have to spend a big chunk out of their savings.
Real estate agents are in the position that they can either go big or go home. There will always be people in need of homes or properties, and it is high time for you to know where to look, and what to do, in order to get a consistent flow of leads.
Establish Your Online Presence
According to the NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 90 percent of home buyers searched online at some point during their pursuit of buying a property. As for home shoppers, 100 percent of them used the internet to research a specific home. 78 percent of new home shoppers also visit three or more sites before making a decision on which property to buy. 77 percent of first-time buyers drove by a home they viewed online. As for the competition, 91 percent of realtors use social media to market and gain more leads.
And according to Google, real estate related searches grew by 253 percent over the past few years.
These statistics and so many others make it all the more crucial to ensure that your online presence is up to date and well-maintained. A user-friendly website, updated blog, and regular promotions and engagement on social media are what it takes to push your business forward in the real estate scene. We can never underestimate the power of social media in making your business known and getting more potential clients.
2. Stock Your Lead Generation Arsenal
Keep the money coming by making sure that you have the best tools and strategies in finding potential buyers. Even as simple as posting or advertising on Facebook will get you leads directly from people. Sending out newsletters on a regular basis can help you funnel in more leads.
Make the most out of social and email marketing tools to get a wider reach in the market. Lead generation platforms such as Zillow and Realtor.com can also come in handy. Using a combination of online and offline networking strategies will help you spread the word out. You never know how a recommendation of a friend of a friend, or how one found your post two months ago, got interested in what you have to offer.
3. Build a Team of Lead Gens
It’s difficult to do all things by yourself, especially if you want to focus more on the important stuff such as staging a house, presenting the best to your clients, and networking. You can come up with your own team of lead generators through freelancing sites or online job posts.
