The Real Estate Industry is HUGE and is a golden opportunity for real estate agents. National average home sales exceed $200,000.00 and real estate commissions are big and plentiful.
No wonder so many people are getting licensed as real estate agents. And why not? You can make a lot of money selling real estate. But being licensed is only first step, as more and more people are getting licensed to cash in on opportunities.
The Second Step.
The most successful real estate agents have lots of listings. Although getting them is easier said than done, you can do it if you have a good real estate listing system. With listings you triple your chances of earning commissions and bonuses. When listings sell you'll be paid a listing fee, a sales fee, or both. Conversely, if you don't have listings you'll only get paid when you sell a property.
A system that some work to near perfection focuses on Expired Real Estate Listings, which are a great source of leads. You donít have to spend a lot of time or money prospecting for them, as they're always just a couple of keystrokes away.
Go ahead, letís try it right now! Log onto your Multiple Listing System service, print out an update report and wah, lah! In seconds you'll have a complete update of all expired listings for any time frame you want.
The MLS update report will provide you with just about everything you need to know to relist expired real estate listings. You can get seller's name, mailing address, property address, phone number, type of property, current asking price, price reductions during listing period, how much taxes are and anything else that you even think you might want to know about these properties.
Unlike fsbos, cold calls and other lead generating systems, owners of expired listings are almost always warm, responsive prospects. Also, they are typically still Realtor friendly and are already sold on idea of doing business with a real estate agent - again.
