3 Free Drip Marketing Emails to Send To Home Seller Leads

July 16 2015

webbox 3 free drip emailsEmails are part of a bigger strategy to get more home seller leads, but using them on their own just won't do the trick.

Normally these emails would cost $50 each since they are written by a professional real estate copywriter, but we are giving these to you for FREE! Here is how they should be used:

  • Email 1 - Send this as soon as the lead comes in. It lets them know you have gotten their request and are working on putting together an accurate CMA.
  • Email 2 - Once you have the CMA ready, send them the second email along with an attached PDF. This screams professionalism.
  • Email 3 - Now is the time to sell. You have given your lead something that is valuable and free. Send this email 3 days after you have sent the CMA and find out how serious they are about selling their home.

You can copy and paste these emails into any email platform.

Title/Subject: Thanks – Your Home Value Report is on the Way!

I [We] really appreciate your visit to my [our] website, and are thrilled to get your online request for a home valuation.

As an expert in the local market, I wanted to respond quickly with this thank-you and a brief description of how we'll use the information you've provided to quickly provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis report and value for your home.

1. First, we're going to go into the sold property data for this market and select at least three or more "comps" or comparable properties. The goal is to select homes as near to yours as possible, as well as homes similar to yours in size, bedrooms, baths, etc. We're also going to be careful to use only very recent comps, as markets change constantly, and we want to be sure we're working with data as current as possible.

2. We're going to compare the information about features with these comps and make adjustments to the prices at which they sold to bring them in line with what they would have been if the comp were exactly the same as your home.

3. Once we've made our adjustments, we can use those sold prices to determine what your home is worth in the current market based on what we know so far.

We wanted to balance detail with your valuable time in providing information, and what you've provided will result in a close estimate of what your home could sell for in the current market. When we send your valuation, please understand that there is more we need for information, as well as a site visit, in order to refine your home valuation. Take [place link here for this text] this link for more detail on what goes into our very detailed CMA.

Watch your email Inbox, as we're going to get this done for you as quickly as possible. We value your interest and your time. Thanks again for your request.

Title/Subject: Check Out Your Home CMA Valuation – It's Ready

Thanks again for allowing us to help you to value your home in today's [local market name] market area. We used the information you sent us in the online form to complete a detailed CMA, Comparative Market Analysis, as we explained in a previous email.

That analysis is attached, and we want to help you with understanding the information in it. You see, every home is unique. We feel comfortable in telling you that the CMA attached is around 90% accurate for your home. Why only 90%? Because your home is unique, there are many details about it that we didn't ask for in the form in order to make it easier for you to submit. It is enough information to feel good about that 90% number, but we need more for a hard 100% accurate current market value for your home.

This is especially true if you were surprised in any way by the numbers in our CMA. Whether you were surprised on the low or the high side, we know it happens at times with these online submissions and preliminary valuations. There is more information we need to get to that hard number, but few people will send that much in an online form. Some of that information also involves things we look for that aren't generally obvious to the average homeowner. Much of the time we know from selling homes in this market every day what buyers want and will pay more for in a home.

Above anything else, a personal onsite visit and walkthrough of your home is absolutely necessary to nail down its true value. After all, you do not want to be surprised by a long time on the market, lowball offers or quick competitive bidding due to listing at the wrong price. It's just as bad to list too low as it is to be over on the high side.

Please [link] click here to fill out an appointment form for a visit, email me [email link], or give me a call [phone number]. You'll be glad you did, and once we've visited and done a more thorough evaluation of your home in relation to the competition in the market, we'll get you to that "just right" listing price that will get it sold.

Title/Subject: Moving Forward with Selling Your Home

If you've already contacted me for a visit, then we've likely nailed down the right listing price to get your home sold, and we're well on the way to doing that. If we have an appointment, thanks and I'm looking forward to it. Either way, you'll soon know the services I provide and why they are a certain path to a successful home sale.

If however you haven't gotten in touch after receiving your CMA, I wanted to reach out once more to see where you are in your decision-making process. A quick overview of why my listing clients recommend me enthusiastically could be right for this email. Here are some of the services I provide in the listing and sale of your home:

  • A comprehensive CMA that gets your home listed at the right price for today's market.
  • Constant market monitoring so that I can adjust that CMA or listing price to respond to new market developments.
  • Professional quality photographs that are high resolution for both online and print marketing.
  • Quality copywriting to sell your home with words in every place where we market it, including syndication to major real estate websites:
    • Our website
    • Zillow.com
    • Trulia.com
    • Realtor.com
    • Other real estate portal sites
    • Homes magazines
    • Newspaper ads

    • Open houses when appropriate and effective
