Before you capture any real estate leads, you’ll need to gain their trust first. Provide leads with the information they are looking for, whether that is listings, tips on choosing a mortgage, or advice on choosing an agent. An estimated 9 out of 10 consumers will begin their online search for a home or agent online. It’s critical to gain a lead’s trust online before you expect any reciprocating actions.
Step 2 – Know What They’re Looking For
Robust lead generation platforms know how many listings have been viewed by leads, their preferred properties, desired neighborhoods, and more. If you want to stand out from the competition, you need to know what leads want before they tell you.
