Using Real Estate Agents as Lead Generation Sources

Slide2

Why Work with Listing Agents?

Most of the really nice, pretty houses in good neighborhoods and cities are listed with

agents.

92% of the

FSBOs

turn into MLS listings with a real estate

agent.

75% of the closed real estate deals involve a R

ealtor.

Slide3

Free lead generation source.There are a tremendous amount of houses that do not get sold and go "

expired."

Agents are not taught to bring creative options to the

seller,

and most sellers want to be cashed out. BUT, when a home doesn't sell, then sellers become frustrated, creative and flexible.

Why Work with Listing Agents?

Slide4

In a buyer's market,

there are

many,

many homes on the market

that sit for a long time."If my home doesn't sell soon, I am going to have to RENT IT." Some of the best types of deals never hit the MLS because

they are in default, distress or

foreclosure.

Why Work with Listing Agents?

Slide5

FSBOs aren't listed with

agents.

Agents are primarily trained on the laws of real estate, fiduciary duty and contracts.

Agents are not trained on creative real estate listing, marketing, sales mastery and finance.

Why NOT to Work with Listing Agents?

Slide6

Why Most Real Estate

Agents

Fail

Slide7

How Most Traditional Agents Get Paid

Step 1: Get a listing.

Step

2: Market the

home (most agents skip this and just put it on the MLS).

Step 3: Set up and

execute showings. Step 4: Locate a b

uyer.

Slide8

Step 5: Negotiate and sign a final contract. Step 6: Have the buyer obtain approval for a mortgage.

Step

7:

Close.

Step 8: Collect a 3% commission for representing the seller.

Slide9

How to Find Real Estate Agents to Work With

Slide10

Where to Look?

Newspapers.

Signs.

Personal contacts: friends and family.

Investor groups.REIA clubs.Foreclosure auctions.Call the local real estate board to see when they have functions and networking events you can attend.

Slide11

Realtors know lots of other Realtors. Lunch

appointments.

Slide12

Finding Agents Using Direct Mail

Letters – 90+ days on the market

Sample letter to Brokers

:

“Dear [insert broker name],

How

would you like to help your agents to sell

more properties and earn more commissions? How would you like to make more money by having your

average

days on market cut by 75

%?

I buy

[insert

number of

homes – ex. 5-10] homes

per

month using

a unique and creative solution for sellers who have little or no equity. This is not a short sale and your agents receive a full commission. I have a presentation full of facts and figures teaching your agents how to thrive in this crazy market by working with sellers who have little or no equity. I am requesting a chance to meet

face

to face to discuss this program with

you,

and once it makes

sense,

to present this to your agents so they can thrive in this type of housing market.

I

have several references including

[insert

references name and phone

number].

I will be following up with you in 3 days to establish a time when we can meet to discuss ways to help your agents sell more

houses,

confidently get more

listings

and make more money. My phone is

[insert phone].

Thanks, [insert name]”

Stop in at Broker’s office

Slide13

Telephone Calls

“Hi

[

insert

listing agent name], this is [insert investors name].

I was calling about your listing on

[insert property address].

I see it's been listed for a while

now,

and I wonder if the sellers are open to something a little more creative to sell there property?

[wait for answer]

I

was thinking about something creative that might

work,

l

ike

a lease option. If your sellers would like to make sure their monthly payments are paid for

them,

and they can still get their cash out down the

road,

it could work out real well for them. I can also make sure you get a full commission.

You

can call me at

[insert

phone

number].

I buy homes where the seller can consider terms like this

yet still need

to have their monthly payments covered.

Again,

you can call me at

[insert number].

Thanks.”

Slide14

Telephone Calls

Slide24

Offers That We Can Make To a Seller

Slide25

Option 1 - All CASH at 65% of FMV.

Option 2 -

80% of FMV with

some seller/owner

financing.Option 3 - 85-100% of Full Market Value. Lease options/taking over payments.

P

aying on terms means we can pay a higher

price.

Slide26

Real Estate Agent Commissions on Lease Options

Slide27

Agent Commissions

They are not due their commissions until the property

closes,

which could be 2-5 years down the

road.The investor will still want to pay them their full commission so the agent is happy and brings you more

deals.

If the Realtor

is

dead-set

against a lease

option,

then move on. If they are open to

it, continue

presenting your offer.

Slide28

Most agents don't do lease options because they cannot get paid up front for doing

them,

and

because

sellers want their cash up front or don't understand how a lease option can help them. The Realtor cannot feel like they are being used or they will kibosh the deal.

Slide29

The Realtor cannot wait to get paid or they may suggest to their client that lease options are a bad

idea,

simply

because

the agent won't get paid. Commissions are paid in full, not paid up front.

Slide30

Pay 1-1 ½ % up front.

Pay

the rest

upon closing of the "A" to "B"

transaction.

Slide31

Sellers pay the real estate agent commission, not the

buyer.

Since

we are paying the

seller’s commission up front, this amount gets taken off of what we would owe to the seller later.

Slide32

Example:Investor agrees to buy a house for

$170,000.

6% commission = $

10,200.

Net after commissions = $170,000 - $10,200 = $159,800. 1% commission up front is $1700.

$170,000

- $1700

=

$168,300

paid up

front.

Slide33

The agent is still due $8500

dollars more upon the "A" to "B"

closing.

T

he remainder of the commission (6% total, so 5% is remaining) will be paid upon closing the "A" to "B" transaction from the seller’s proceeds. The realtors commission doesn't get paid until you find your tenant

buyer.

The transaction is always contingent upon finding the tenant

buyer.

Commissions come from the

investor,

so it's a low money down

deal.
