The Tools Confusion!

By
Real Estate Agent with Prime Real Estate

     Every day I receive in my inbox email after email.  Lead generation for x amount of dollars. Leads to your phone for x amount of  dollars.  QR code information for x amount of dollars.  How to get buyers to call you for x amount of dollars.  You as a real estate agent I am sure are getting emails like this. 

     Sorting it all out! What a nightmare a new agent could lose more money then they make in the first year.  As you look at all the pay only 19.95 a month for this virtual tour company and that photo editing company it seems like the bank withdrawls will never end.

     Well as a fairly new agent (oh yes I fell for my fair share) I have learned to google whatever company that is out there asking for my hard earned dollars.  Thats right if there is a company on the web asking for your money somewhere there is feedback from other agents on these companies. Whether it is lead generation or sign companies someone has made a comment somewhere.

 

    Instead of losing your hard earned money take the time to do a little research it will pay off in the end.

And ask for input from ActiveRain members!  You are so right, Valarie - there are so many companies trying to make a quick buck on our fears.  We have to guard our business carefully.

Valarie,

As soon as they say, "And it will pay for itself with the first sale it brings you," RUN away!

Valarie - If those ads promise "easy money" run even faster.  Real estate is tough enough without the "sharks" out there feeding off the agents.  Asking people in AR is the best advise I saw.  Thanks for the blog.

@Steve thanks I agree and these companies seem to be popping out of the woodwork every day.
