Contest: Share Your Out-of-the-Box Seller Follow-up Strategies

Reblogger Praful Thakkar
Real Estate Agent with LAER Realty Partners

Did you come up with your out-of-box idea?

Today is the last day to enter this contest from ActiveRain Contests .

Share Your Out-of-the-Box Seller Follow-up Strategies

Original content by ActiveRain Contests

Active Rain would be nothing without its users, who share their pain points, best practices and successes each and every day.

In our latest challenge, hosted by realtor.com®, we’re asking agents and real estate professionals to share their most “out of the box” ideas for following up with seller leads.

The top posts will be shared on Active Rain and (with permission) will also be shared onstage at the realtor.com® Results Summit in Las Vegas this fall.


Tell us: What “out of the box” tactics do you use when following up with a CMA request or other seller lead? How do you make sure you’re unforgettable?

 

A few Rainers noted that the original "out of the box" idea involving a FedEx box may violate FedEx's rules and regulations. Thanks for your eagle eyes and holding us to high ethical standards! Here are a few other ideas to get you started:
 
Example 1: Don't be afraid to aim high

Once a seller lead comes, consider sending out the highest sales prices in the area (rather than a traditional CMA of the property in question). Says the agent, "If the home is the worst house on the best block, we highlight the neighborhood value as a place of great resale value if the work is put in. Then we offer to come by in person to make upgrade recommendations and give a 'what we could sell for' evaluation in person."
 
Example 2: Don't be afraid of being full of hot air

Lab Coat Agents' Tristan Ahumada shared, "The craziest one we have heard is an agent tying a business card to a balloon and letting it go into the air and hoping that whomever gets it will call. Assuming the balloon comes back down. Definitely crazy!

 

Earn rewards and have your ideas shared onstage in Vegas!

We know that giving away your best ideas can be hard, so we’re sweetening the deal with these awesome rewards:

  • 3,000 Active Rain points for every entry to the “realtor.com® contest: Share your out-of-the-box seller strategies” (limit one per person for points)

  • 5,000 additional points to the top 5 selections, which will be highlighted in an Active Rain post

  • With permission, the top entries will be shared this September at the realtor.com® Results Summit in Las Vegas!

  • PLUS: One lucky entrant, drawn randomly, will receive a complimentary ticket to attend the Results Summit (a non-refundable value of $250)!!

 

The fine print -- How to enter

In order to make a submission, write a blog post about your most unique tactics for following up with seller leads. Once you’ve published your entry, return to this page and add a link to your post in the comments section of this post. If you already have a post you’ve written that fits the criteria, that works too! We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, we just want awesome content and agent best practices.

Timing:

We’ll be accepting entries from Monday, August 1st through Friday, August 12th. Don’t miss out on a chance to win up to 8,000 Active Rain points and a FREE ticket to an incredible conference in Vegas!
