Services for Real Estate Pros with Rate A Home

With over 80% of Real estate buyers and renters surfing the Internet before making verbal contact, you have to capture them at your home page.

Rate A Home provides a Free Lead Generating Wish List program where only the web site owner receives the leads. There's no fees to you or the buyer.

Wish Lists for existing homes, new construction, condominiums (high and low rise) and rentals

How the program works:

You add a link on your home page, for example: "Create your Dream Home Here" or "New Home Wish List"

The buyer or renter completes a personal wish list. Only the customer and yourself receive a copy of the wish list via e-mail. Rate A Home receives no copies, so you don't compete against 20 other professionals for the same lead. And it's all free, so there's nothing to lose but potential leads from your site visitors.

Once you receive a wish list, you will know exactly what the buyer or renters needs are along with their contact information through a detailed report.

To test a wish list feel free to run a trial at my home building web site http://www.marlinkbuilders.com/and enter your name and e-mail address as if you were the buyer. This way a copy will automatically come to you via e-mail. Where the Marlink Builders logo appears is where your logo would show on any wish list completed from your personal or company web site.

The best I have seen was a Remax agent who added his contact information, logo and name to the reports. You can also test a wish list at Todd's web site to view his logo set up: http://www.westmichiganhome.com/

Thanks Karl,

Here's a 5/3 Mortgage Broker who added the program to his web site. I'm sure Tom wouldn't have a problem with you testing from his site as well. Just enter "Test" in the buyer's name box and your e-mail in the buyer's data box to receive a copy. This will show how he displayed the Fifth Third Bank logo.

What's nice about this program it offers continued marketing if the buyers are not ready to purchase today. 6 months a year, 5 years down the line when they do decide to purchase and review their wishes, there's your name at the top of their wish list.

Duane,

I am confused.  I already have a dream home finder on my website.  What I am trying to figure out is how to get more people to my website.  I do not see how rate a home would help in that regard.  Am I missing something?

Good morning Steve,

The lead generation comes from buyers already visiting your web site. That's the reason Rate A Home decided to make this a free program. We figured if the agent is doing all the work and marketing to get the buyers to their web sites, why should they have to pay for a program that captures leads once they are there.

How I market my own company (building) is by handing out and posting as many business cards as I can that has (Visit www.marlinkbuilders.com to create your new home wish list. Others have done the same with, "Visit www.samplerealty.com to create your Dream Home) as well as in my advertising, the nice part about our wish list is your logo and name remains on the wish list that the buyer receives. Most wish list only go to the agent so the buyer has no copy or any idea what they even completed or on who's site they completed the wish list on. So if they are not ready to buy today, months down the road when they become serious buyers they have your name in front of their eyes when they review their wish list. It's continued marketing for you.
