TOP REALTORS LEVERAGE EXPIRED LEADS
Most top-earning real estate agents stick to a straightforward strategy for success: prospecting expired real estate listings. These leading agents understand three simple truths about homeowners with an expired MLS listing:
- They’ve already made their most important decision: to sell their home. So, no convincing is necessary.
- They are open to working with a real estate agent.
- They have a property they need or want to sell and, at that moment, no assigned agent.
The statistics also support the value of prospecting an expired real estate listing:
- Between 15-25% have not sold for various reasons, including marketing, price, condition, and location.
- Nearly 40% of all expired listings or expired leads will list with a new agent within 30 days.
- 35% will leave their homes off the market for at least a month.
- Only 28% of expired listing homeowners will re-sign with their current agent.
- 90% of expired leads real estate represent immediate, urgent business opportunities.
Real estate expired leads represent a tremendous opportunity for agents willing and ready to make an effort. If you plan to be one of those agents, you’ve come to the right place. Expired listing software like Espresso Agent provides agents a clear advantage over other agents. Our expired listing service delivers new expired leads to your desktop every morning, coupled with the best CRM and Dialer in the business.
But as good as Espresso Agent expired data might be, agents still must master the subtle art of engaging expired listing homeowners. Here are a few tips:
Remember, when it comes to prospecting real estate expired listings, these homeowners are likely inundated with calls from agents. As such, you’ll have only a few precious moments to engage the homeowner, build some initial rapport, and position yourself for the business:
- The homeowner must know how you would do things better (“While your home was on the market, I sold X homes in the same area.”)
- Get them back in touch with their original motivation to sell by asking when and where they are hoping to move when they sell
When calling expired listings leads, call early and be persistent in your follow-up. It’s important to prove to the homeowner that selling their home is your top priority.
Your number one goal should be to secure an in-person listing presentation or home tour. Nothing beats a face-to-face meeting for building rapport, and trust, with the homeowner.
You may run into situations where the homeowner previously listed with a friend and is possibly inclined to re-list for the same reason. Try to turn this in your favor: “I appreciate great friendships, but do you think you gave your friend the best chance to sell your home?”
Before calling, be prepared for the inevitable objections the homeowner is likely to throw your way. Importantly, learn how to ask solid, open-ended questions so that the homeowner does most of the talking.
Past or old expired listings represent a potentially lucrative opportunity because fewer agents are calling these forgotten homeowners. But you know they have a home to sell and, likely, do not have a listing agent
Represent yourself as a partner and problem solver. Be willing to go above and beyond what their previous agent did (or didn’t do).
Be straightforward if asked whether or not your commission is negotiable: “It depends on many factors, such as the condition of your home and the price we set. We can discuss that in more detail when we meet tomorrow.”
How To Get Expired Listings
An expired real estate listing represents both a tremendous opportunity and significant challenge for real estate agents. On the plus side, you can be the “white knight” who swoops in to turn failure into profits for frustrated homeowners. At the same time, you need to be aware that these same homeowners may be suspicious of any real estate agent who claims to have the golden key to success.
Fortunately, if you’re an Espresso Agent client, you’ll be a step ahead of most agents by virtue of having the best expired listings leads in the business.
When you use those leads to their full potential to build rapport and trust, you’ll likely get invited to tour the home. As such, you’ll want to have a professional-looking expired listing presentation and information packet to leave with the homeowner.
Here are a few things you’ll want to cover in your information packet, and related listing presentation:
It’s important to acknowledge the seller’s frustration, but you must also be careful not to be negative about the previous agent’s performance. Provide an overview of your observations about the property, and the things you believe would make it more attractive to buyers.
A SHORT bio
Briefly outline the most notable transactions you’ve closed in recent months, especially if those were properties in close proximity to your current prospect. In particular, focus on homes that share similar characteristics with the home of your current prospect. Share photos of those other homes as well.
Discuss your general philosophy with regard to pricing, especially in the context of current market conditions. Have a clear point-of-view on the previous pricing strategy, and how you would handle pricing moving forward.
Reinforce the fact that in today’s complex marketplace, a yard-sign alone won’t do the trick. Walk the homeowner through your philosophy and approach to marketing, and provide examples of what you’ve done to sell other homes.
A common homeowner complaint about real estate agents is poor communication and follow up. That said, the homeowner should know your philosophy on responding to calls or emails. If you promise to return a call within a certain period of time, be sure you stick to that promise.
The Extra Mile
What would you do to go the extra mile for the homeowner? Would you hire a professional stager? How would you use video or photography to bring their home to life? Would you pay for pre-inspection to help anticipate any issues that might come up during the sales process? Again, this goes to your role as a partner in helping them to sell their property.
Share what other clients have to say about your performance.
If you’ve wondered how to get phone numbers for expired listings, you’ve come to the right place. Espresso Agent provides the best expired listing phone numbers in the industry. Whether old or new expireds, we can help you step up your prospecting game and earn the kind of revenue you imagined when you got into the business.
How To Get Expired Listings With Scripts
As we discuss in our blog post “5 Tips to Master Real Estate Prospecting Scripts,” top-producing real estate agents use scripts to power their prospecting efforts.
Espresso Agent provides a broad menu of cold call scripts to guide your phone prospecting outreach with real estate expired listings. Mastering a cold calling script helps you to control the flow of a conversation. But perhaps more importantly, script mastery helps you to sound natural and confident, which goes a long way toward building trust with your prospect.
Many agents, especially those newer to our industry, feel that scripts might make them sound too “mechanical.” But in actuality, the more you master your scripts, the more natural you will sound to your prospect. In addition, scripts are invaluable in guiding your ability to ask effective, open-ended questions. Plus, scripts give you the ability to deflect homeowner objections.
The following is a script used by Tom Ferry, that you could use when contacting homeowners with expired listings :
- YOU: Hi, I’m looking for (NAME). This is (NAME) with (COMPANY). I noticed your home was no longer listed online. Is it on or off the market?
- HOMEOWNER: Hello, yes, my home is no longer on the market.
- YOU: What are the reasons you’re taking your home off the market?
- HOMEOWNER: I haven’t had any offers.
- YOU: if you did sell this home, where would you move?
- HOMEOWNER: I would have moved to (LOCATION).
- You: When did you plan on selling, and moving?
- HOMEOWNER: In three months.
- YOU: Why do you think your home didn’t sell?
- HOMEOWNER: I don’t think we marketed it very well.
- YOU: Knowing what you know now, what will you expect from your next agent
- HOMEOWNER: Someone who’s reliable, knowledgeable, and knows how to market properties.
As you can see, this script allows the agent to control the conversation with open-ended questions. This dialogue helps the agent to build rapport, and gain insights as to the homeowner’s goals and dreams.
