Where to Find the Top 7 Types of Real Estate Leads

April 19 2018

Looking for new places to find listing leads in this low inventory market? Realtor Loida Velasquez shares her top five places to find seller leads, along with two ways to find buyer leads, in this video.

Check it out above to learn more about where to find and how to engage these seven types of leads:

Seller Leads

  • FSBO - These first two lead types are the obvious place to start, but good news--these are typically motivated sellers. Find FSBOs on Zillow or Craigslist, or on many other free sites.
  • Expireds - Loida recommends getting their address from the MLS and going door knock them. Check out the video for more advice.
  • Make Me Moves - You can find these leads live on Zillow. Loida recommends thinking of them as "pre-FSBOs."
  • Notice of Default - You purchase info on these next two lead types to identify them.
  • Divorced

Buyer Leads

  • Open houses - While mostly buyers show up to open houses, you can meet seller leads in neighbors who may be thinking of selling soon.
  • Preview homes - Dedicate a set time to find a vacant home with lockbox, preview it, and door knock around that area to chat up the neighbors and cultivate potential leads.
