Tips for prospecting Expired listings ...
Using The Multi-list To Get The Expired Listings.
It is best to call the expired listings on the first day that the listing expires .. the earlier the better. Allow an appropriate amount of time to call the multi-list computer, and pull off those listings that expire at midnight on the day they expire. You may have to get up early in the morning to compete with the di-hard agents. I can’t tell you the number of listings that you can effectively prospect, but a good estimate would be 10 to 30 every day.
Getting Phone Numbers.
There are many tricks to getting the phone numbers: Your multi-list may not publish them.
The tax rolls often give the owner’s phone number. (it’s best to pull the Tax information along with the listing)
Public phone book white pages and any directory you can get your hands on.
The Web & Internet directories. Google, 411 locate, etc. Search the internet for reliable sources
Directories such as subdivision organizations, track indexes and homeowner groups etc.
When You Can't Get The Phone Number ...
The Expired Listings that you can’t get a phone number … obviously, you must go to the door. You tend to remember the script dialogue in a face-to-face conversation. At first you will be a bit rusty but in time you will learn the “1-liners” through the repletion of calling and soon you will commit them to memory. Smooth-talker Sales Scripts become a training & teaching tool.
The Listings Just Keep Piling Up!
Don’t forget that there will be 10 or 20 more listings to prospect tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, ad infinitum. By the end of one week, you will probably have a large number of homes that you did not or could not contact. That is …. prospect.
Call On The Properties That Are Most Likely To List First ... Prioritize! Prioritize!
Call the properties that you think will list that day. Called the "lay-down listing." Every multi-list has a system whereby the homes address’s that are listed are divided by area, city, and price range etc. It is your choice of which category of listings to prospect on a daily basis. You may choose to only call on mid and high price ranges of single-family homes or you may specialize in condo and town homes. The choice is obvious. Single family first and then Condos.
A Strategy & Tactics Plan For Expired Listings.
It is best to prospect all types of property within a short distance of your office. A short distance, in most suburban markets would be a 1 to 5 mile radius. (note that a 5 mile radius amounts to nearly a 60 square mile territory) In a rural markets it may be measured in miles or in counties. If you’re a market area that has a large number of listings that are non-published and cannot be obtained through the usual sources, it stands to reason that you must work harder to maintain the number of listings that will result in having a phone number.
