How to Convert Internet Real Estate Leads

imagesThe National Association of Realtors research shows the average buyer searches for 2 weeks on their own prior to contacting a real estate agent. For this reason agents now need a strategy designed for internet lead conversion that can be completed over a 10 – 14 day time period.

I hear agents all the time !!!! saying “web leads suck” or “internet leads are a waste of time” and i know for a fact that they dont ! I Work with 2 top agents in the San Diego South County area and 80% of their closings are from internet leads !!! and i know a top agent in the USA that was kind enough to share this amazing and proven web lead strategy with us all and help others with the ongoing challenge of not knowing how to convert an internet lead and of course the below can be accomplished with a CRM of your choice.

Once you make contact you must adjust your message and plan to fit the client’s needs and timelines. Once you schedule the appointment, determine their timeline or verify their contact information then stop the system. If you have not scheduled an appointment and have missing information then the lead goes into the 10 day follow up system.
