How to Make Receiving Referrals as Natural as Breathing (Free Real Estate Referral Scripts)

 

Hey guys, let's talk about asking for generosity from your clients, specifically in the form of referrals.

I'm going to share two or three strategies that should feel natural to you because referrals are the number one way to generate business.

Remember, when people are going through a transaction, there's a four times greater likelihood they'll refer you because it's a natural part of the conversation.

So here's the deal: you've got to train them, you've got to coach them.

Try this scripting: "Now that you're buying or selling, I'm sure some of your friends are going to be jealous. If you run into somebody who wants to follow your lead, I'd love the opportunity to work with them." Simple, right? It doesn't sound salesy; it sounds natural.

Another approach: "Now that you're selling, I'm sure a few of your friends and family will be jealous. If they want to follow your lead, I'd appreciate your referral. I like working with people like you." It's about leveraging their network in a...

This Real Estate Resume Strategy is a Classy Way to Dominate the Spring & Summer Markets

 

As we gear up for the bustling spring and summer real estate market, it's crucial to leverage our networks effectively.

How do we elegantly request referrals and direct business?

Enter the real estate resume strategy.

How to Tap into The Shadow Inventory Boom with One Simple Question!

 

Hey folks, did you know 23% of homeowners in the US are planning to sell their homes within three years?

That's a massive pool of potential listings right in your community.

How can you tap into this "shadow inventory"? Well, here's a winning strategy: a personalized letter campaign.

You're already farming neighborhoods, right? So send out letters, but make them different this time. Start with a simple question: "Hey, Mr. and Mrs. Homeowner, is this the last home you'll ever own?"

It's a magic question because regardless of age, people always think there's another move ahead.

Then, explain that some of your clients aren't keen on listing publicly but would entertain offers from qualified buyers. Offer to chat if they're in that boat. Include your contact info, and keep it straightforward.

This approach will resonate with many homeowners who aren't ready for the market but would consider a strong offer. You'll start receiving calls, so funnel them into your drip campaign. Build that...

92% of FSBOs End Up Working with REALTORS. Here Are Pro-Tips To Win Their Listing

 

Why do people try FSBOs instead of listing with a REALTOR?

The answer might surprise you…

A lot would assume it's all about commission, but only 40% of sellers do it for that reason. That means 60% don't!

Another interesting fact: Only 5% of people will never use a REALTOR. The othere 95% are open to it.

In fact, did you know 92% of FSBOs will end up working with a REALTOR?

The question is: Will it be you or your competitor? You need to reach out to them. There's a 4-6 week incubation period for most FSBOs. So, commit to working with them for that time.

When calling them, use this magic sentence: "I'm not calling to list your house. I respect your decision to sell on your own."

This will bring their defenses down. Then, ask to come by and take a look at their house. No pressure to list. It's about incubation and relationship-building.

If they decide to list with you, be ready for that conversation. Walk through the house, take notes, and casually ask if they might work with a...

How To Use AI to Turn Your Website into a Magnet for Potential Clients

 

Your website should be a magnet for potential clients. Think about it: when someone recommends you, the first thing others do is Google you. And if your website looks outdated, it's a turn-off. So, let's talk about how to create a standout website that dominates your market.

First, your website should reflect the lifestyle of your niche. If you're in a bustling city, showcase the urban lifestyle. If you're in a scenic area, highlight the natural beauty.

Second, make search functionality a priority. Your website should seamlessly connect to local MLS for easy property searches.

Third, make it hyperlocal. Your website should be a one-stop hub for all things community-related. Include tabs for relocation, buying, and selling. Also, keep your website dynamic by updating it regularly. Changing photos seasonally keeps it fresh and engaging.

Winning Against Zillow: How to Dominate Mindshare in Your Local Real Estate Market

 

When somebody hears the word “real estate” in your market, what do you think comes to mind?

For most Americans, it's instantly Zillow. They've taken over this position in consumers' minds, being the first place they go for searches and home values.

So, how do we compete against a billion-dollar company?

A lot of you have given up and said, I'm just going to start buying my leads from Zillow. Keep in mind that's a negative 32% ROI, meaning for every $10 spent, you lose $3.20.

So, how do you win against Zillow and take over “Mindshare” in your local community?

You can't do it entirely, but it'll come from getting close to your consumers and your community.

Why?

Zillow can't create relationships with specific people in specific communities. But you can… by developing relationships with your own audiences, showing expertise, and connecting with local businesses and charities. Highlight why you love your community through videos and social media.

Real Estate Market Alert: Rents Declining, Massive Opportunities for Investors! 🏡💰

 

For the last three months, rents have been on decline, and that's kind of a shock. We saw rents skyrocket during covid, but now there's pressure coming into the market.

Two things have happened:

First, people are starting to come back into buying houses again, so they're leaving their rental units to buy houses, a small trickle there. Another big part is the fact that 500,000+ new units across the country were built and came online last year, and 400,000+ are coming online this.

So what's the opportunity for us as REALTORS?

Well, one opportunity is to target mom and pop investors in your local market. These are people that might own two to 10 units in your market. They're not major industrial investors, but they'll be impacted by higher vacancy rates and decreasing rents. Some of these folks bought and they stretched themselves to afford it, and if they have a couple of months of vacancy, they could really get hurt.

Still, it's a strong market and there are still investors acquiring...

The “Local Business” Secret for Skyrocketing Your Real Estate Referrals

 

Heading into the new year, here's a game-changing strategy for you:

Open up your CRM, scan your sphere of influence, and pinpoint all the business owners. Start by reaching out to them. Call and ask, "Hey, Jim, how's the new year looking for you? How did last year finish off?"

Share your plan, "I want to start endorsing a local business every week on my social media, and I'd love to feature yours. I just want to promote local businesses I admire. No strings attached. Are you cool with that?"

They'll likely say yes, appreciating the gesture.

Be the Go-Giver. Lead with their needs. Within a week, make a post about their business on social media. Include photos, share your personal experience, and publicly endorse them. Tag them in the post. They might even share it with their audience. It's a win-win, a feel-good moment for both parties.

Even if they don't reciprocate immediately, the spirit of giving will work its magic for your business.

Now, measure your efforts. If your goal is to...
