Free Real Estate Lead - Potentially Lucrative and Always Risk Free

Jan 12, 2008
Want to generate free real estate leads? No, I'm not kidding, although I know that it sounds impossible enough to be a joke. But I'm as serious as heart attack.

Many agents and firms started out utilizing free lead generation strategies - ones that are cost-effective, yet virally effective and risk-free. Many still use them to this day.

One way to find them is to search for online agencies that offer free leads, but "free" may not really be free.

For example, some online agencies require you to pay a few dollars as sign up fees for their leads. But in general you can utilize their services to generate potential leads and have a few buyers contact you from time to time.

Another lead generation idea is to write and distribute real estate articles. which is easy to do and becoming a popular and affordable method of generating leads, creating a brand and generating sales.

Article distributions is literally as writing an article, submitting it to online article directories, then letting the Internet work its magic. Good articles will get distributed far and wide over the Internet and generate leads over and over again - sometimes well beyond several years after you submit them for distribution.

A third lead generation idea is to cultivate a Real Estate Referral System, which is done by generating leads by word of mouth, via recommendations and through referrals and good rapport.

A vibrant referral system is earned through dedication to your customers...and your perceived trustworthiness. If you lie, deceive and/or mislead them they'll abandon you, but if you treat them honestly and look out for their best interests they'll become repeat customers who will in turn refer their friends and relatives to you.

Finally, a fourth way to generate leads is to pursue Expired Listing Leads. With this strategy you offer to relist properties of owners of expired listings, which occur everyday all across the country. Expired listings can be an unending source of free to low cost leads.

But free does not mean without effort. Still, working expired listings is not hard, but having a good system and a commitment to succeed is helpful.

Summarily, creating close ties with your network of family and friends can help you connect to people in a way that will have them considering you when they need a realtor. The rest is up to you.

Build upon that rapport to increase the chance of generating leads and expanding your network base. The power of word of mouth alone will allow you to get more people in your network.

Then, let your network work for you in terms of people in it introducing their networks to your business. From there you can establish a rapport with newfound prospects based on similar interests.

In the end your network will be one of your biggest assets in generating free business leads.

Finally, make use of these powerful lead generating ideas and watch your business soar. There's no secret to generating positive leads, just pure people relationships based on trust and sincerity.
