  • "The St. Elizabeth Condominiums’ chapel unit is on the market for a cool $1.75M" - Nola.Curbed.com"Despite its beauty, this chapel condo pops in and out of the local real estate market like a tourist on a Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour. Is the property haunted? Well, it’s a former orphanage that was later owned by spooky scribe Anne Rice, so that’s a distinct possibility. Hauntings aside, we’re not sure why St. Elizabeth condo #16 has trouble retaining an owner. It’s the crown jewel of one of New Orleans’ most architecturally and historically significant buildings..."
  • "Las Vegas Housing Prices Reached the Highest Level in the Last 11 Years" - DigitalJournel.com"Real estate experts have marked a significant change in the economy and housing prices in Las Vegas during the last couple of months. 2018 has brought many changes to the Las Vegas real estate market, with prices rising rapidly and the number of available properties dropping just as quickly. However, it is certain that the city of Las Vegas is booming once again after the massive market crash in 2008. According to Nevada Current and the statistics from August 2018, the average price of a single-family home in the area of Southern Nevada equaled to $295,000. This shows how the prices have increased significantly since 2012 when the same properties were available for $118,000. However, even today’s average is still below the all-time high, which was $315,000, back in June 2006."
  • "Home of the Week: Sneak peek of Montford Holiday Tour of Homes" - Citizen-Times.com"When Chicago weather became too much for Pat and Ron Hart, they began a down South search that landed them in Asheville. A retired registered nurse, Pat moved to the area three years ago while Ron, a real estate agent, followed her six months later after retiring and selling their home in Illinois. 'We decided to move south due to a combination of Southern climate, the mountains, the four seasons and because we would be off the hurricane beaten path,” Ron said. “We just felt the dual wrath of hurricanes Michael and Florence.' Instead of purchasing a home right away, the couple took the safe route and rented until they gained their bearings..."
  • "NYC Real Estate Brokers & Landlords Are Salivating Over Amazon Invasion" - Gothamist.com"With New York City still deep in the midst of an affordability crisis—a Furman Center report released earlier this year showed that the city's population continues to outpace housing supply, and median rents have increased by around $300/month since 2000, while renters' salaries have only increased by $145—Amazon is promising to bring 25,000 to 40,000 jobs to Queens with an average salary of $150,000..."
offrs: Finding The Best Real Estate Lead Generator

offrs: Finding The Best Real Estate Lead Generator

Identifying the best real estate lead generator can be tough. So, offrs breaks down what to look for and how offrs generates award-level real estate leads!

 

 

An Award-worthy Real Estate Lead Generator?

Yup! This year, offrs took home CIO Applications’ 2018 award for Predictive Analytics in Real Estate and did so by continuing a legacy of innovation in lead generation for real estate agents. But what are the traits that make a great real estate lead generator? After all, leads are leads, right? Well, in this industry insight, we go in depth to look at what it takes to be an industry leader in real estate listing leads and how gaining access to the best real estate lead generation available can be the single-most impactful business decision you make this year. Of course, we're biased, but let's take a look and see if you agree...

 

Seller Leads: The Golden Ticket

First and foremost, seller leads are the golden ticket in real estate. More accurately, signed contracts are, but short of bags of money being delivered to your door, the opportunity to get a signed contract is what we're looking for! Of course, you'll have to make the case for your brand, but we've done a lot of research on the closing and can provide you with some serious resources to help you seal the deal! From scripts and templates to best practices, video and live webinar training, we'll help you utilize the myriad of tools made available through offrs real estate lead generation services! In fact, we've written an eBook on the topic of establishing deep-rooted relationships with your farm's homeowners! It's a thick, but super-helpful read that provides tips, scripts,  and suggestions on how to approach your regions residents (based on whichever marketing channel you're looking to use). Check it out here.

 

The Longevity Of Listing Leads

If this is a relationship business, then why is lead generation for real estate so important? Maybe you're comfortable with the flow of inbound business your operation is currently handling and if so, you might be inclined to sit back and let this pace ride for a while. But we'd caution that the upcoming housing market isn't just something you need to be aware of for your clients' behalf, but something you should be planning on now in order to help you survive the winter months ahead. The best leads you have are the ones you've established trust with, so right now, you're going to want to really develop deep roots with your leads (so that they don't jump ship for another agent in the future - when you need them the most). One statistic shows that while 80% of homeowners claim they'll work with their current agent, only 20% actually do. That's an eye-opening stat that's worth keeping a keen eye on! Keep your leads close and don't kick your feet up too long!

 

Multiple Leads, Multiple Opportunities

In the end, the agent with the largest database of contacted real estate leads is the one that will likely close the most among their peers. Luck will always be a wildcard (in nearly any endeavor), but it's a luxury that any serious business entrepreneur can't afford. Instead, you've got to push the odds in your favor wherever possible and stack inbound listing leads that you can convert over time. In addition to bringing in more opportunities for the short-term, a wider inbound lead pipeline followed with solid lead conversion farming tactics has the added benefit of saturating your brand presence throughout your farm. And this is the way you've got to think going into tough times... cover the base while setting up future actions to inadvertently aid in other areas of marketing, brand saturation and general operations.

 

Longterm Strategies In Lead Gen

The other nice thing about having a wide Top-Of-Funnel pipeline that's gathering up as many leads as possible... is that you're taking fuel away from your competition. We've mentioned this before, but in short... the more leads you're getting (and working) from your farm, the less leads your competition is. As above, the key is to set up your operation in advance so that you can handle the input and output bandwidth for this sort of multiple-front battle. It is doable, you just need to plan on it. Again, offrs can help with your strategy here, as we've seen countless thousands of agents across the nation implement offrs' passive real estate lead generation websites and, active real estate predictive analytics solutions together to process the inbound real estate seller leads generated, not only identifying immediate opportunities, but aiding in the task of long-term farming and lead conversion.

And we got here by continuously innovating across the board... not just in one area of lead generation, but in multiple areas, covering multiple outreach channels... then connecting those dots with solid bridges.

But really, it comes down to what your business needs and how best the offrs solution can help bolster your current operation.
