Question for Sacramento Area Agents and Realtors

By
Mortgage and Lending with WealthWise Mortgage Planning, a Division of American Pacific Mortgage Corporation NMLS #1850 NMLS 244226
Do you think Call Capture sign riders are a valuable tool in the Sacramento area?I have offered the service free (I handle all of the phone calls to prevent RESPA issues) to area realtors and very few are interested. Of the signs I have placed, I haven’t had much response. Does the fact that we have a public MLS site here mean that buyers are not checking out neighborhoods by car? Do buyers prefer a paper “Take One” flyer?I would like to hear your thoughts.Thank you!

Ed, I am new to the Sacramento area, so I am interested in any comments you get from this.  We have family up in Shingle Springs, beautiful area!

My husband is licensed in CA (I am in TX) and we do most of our business with foreclosures and short sales.

Being originally from the Modesto area, I can say a few years ago there were not many bandit signs for selling houses.  I do believe you are right that most people can search the MLS and find what they need. 

Internet marketing generates the most leads for us.  I think people like the ability to write an email rather than call someone and get "pitched" to.

AS AN REO AGENT, I DO NOT USE THEM.  SEVERAL OF MY TEAM IS USING THESE BUT I AM HEARING THAT THE RESULTS ARE MINIMAL.  CALL CAPTURE FOR THE SPECIFIC PROPERTY ARE GETTING LESS RESULTS, BUT THE ONES TALKING ABOUT BANK FORECLOSURES LISTS ARE GETTING MORE ACTIVITY.  MY WEBSITE, AND REALTOR.COM ARE GETTING US MORE LEADS THAN ANYTHING ELSE.
