Where to Get the Best Real Estate Leads

Being a real estate agent is not an easy job. The job requires you to learn specific skills and polish them with experience and exposure. I know how difficult it is to get the best real estate leads and the kind of effort that has to be put in to convert these leads into clients.

With technology and structure in the real estate industry, sourcing good leads doesn’t pose as great a challenge as, let’s say, a decade back. Today, some of the best leads can be found over the Internet. Additionally, sourcing leads is just part of the bigger agenda which is to convert the lead into a customer and earn money.

There are many ways to find seller and buyer leads. Here are a couple of ways to get some of the best real estate leads are explained below.

Purchasing Real Estate Leads: Back in my time, purchasing real estate leads was immensely popular strategy. And while many agents still use this strategy, it is NOT the most effective way. When you purchase the leads, you are basically buying names and phones of people who don’t know you, have never heard of you and could already have an agent by the time you contact them. But, there is no harm in generating a database as long as you keep updating the information on a regular basis.

Personal Real Estate Website: A personal website is often frowned upon by many agents. However, I am of the opinion that personal real estate websites are a great way to increase visibility and add value to your own brand. Your website is a true representation of your skills and experience. Make sure that you have a lead generation form on your website. Moreover, you should provide valuable information relating to real estate on your website for your visitors.
