Easy Hacks for Prospecting and Marketing Automation Success
Have you ever wished you could connect RPR (Realtors Property Resource®) to your CRM, or maybe directly to Canva for prospecting and farming? Well, we're not quite there yet, however there are a few things you can do to "hack" the system and be on your way to prospecting and automation success. Before we jump in, if you're just getting started in real estate or want to give your database a boost, be sure to check out this previous article: How to Build your Neighborhood Database From Scratch. Think of it as some prerequisite reading to this article. You'll get an understanding of what datasets are available to you from RPR and all the info you need on RPR's Mailing Labels. Now you have an understanding of how to set up your CRM and how you can export RPR Mailing Labels. Here's where we take it a step further, beyond pre-formatted labels and right into marketing automation territory: the ability to export raw data via a CSV export. In this article, we're going to take the next step and strategically filter for specific types of prospects. Automate your marketing and targets prospects with these "Recipes" Below are a few "recipes," based on real world scenarios, that you can use with the RPR Advanced Search feature to help you spot target prospects with ease. To drill down and identify Current Renters/Potential Homeowners, follow these steps: Step #1: Click "Research" Step #2: Click "Map Search" Step #3: Search your target area (hint: you can search as small as a neighborhood) Step #4: Click "More Filters" for advanced searching Step #5: Change the search to "Public Records" (you'll want to target less than 500) Step #6: Scroll down to "Miscellaneous Fields" and make sure "Absentee Owner" is selected Step #7: Make sure "Time Owned" is selected to the 5-10 and 10-15 year groupings Step #8: Click "Update and Search" Step #9: Click "Mailing Labels" Step #10: Select "CSV" Step #11: Make sure the "Address Type:" is "Property" Step #12: Change the "Addressed To:" field to "Current Resident" or to "Custom Name" and fill it out with something like "Future Homeowner" Step #13: Select "Absentee Owner" as the "Occupancy Type" Step #14: Run full list, or narrow records to export Target: Potential Home Sellers Follow steps 1-5 from above, then continue with: Step #6: Scroll down to "Miscellaneous Fields" and make sure "Owner Occupied" is selected Step #7: Make sure "Time Owned" is selected to the 5-10 and 10-15 year groupings Step #8: Click "Update and Search" Step #9: Click "Mailing Labels" Step #10: Select "CSV" Step #11: Make sure the "Address Type:" is "Property" Step #12: Change the "Addressed To:" field to "Owner Name" Step #13: Select "Owner Occupied" as the "Occupancy Type" Step #14: Run full list, or narrow records to export Need Help? Take a step-by-step guided tour of the two examples above. From here, you can take these lists and add additional columns to your sheet that would match your CRM (ie: "Status" and then set it to say "Prospect-Buyer" or "Prospect-Seller,") this can work with Google Sheets or your CRM of choice. If you're working with a CRM, instead of additional columns, when you're importing your contacts, simply apply flags or categories directly within your platform to help keep your contacts organized. But, let's not stop there, let's set up an automation that can do all of that for you… Making automations and RPR work for you The beauty of this workflow is the ability to essentially take this data right from RPR and apply it directly to your CRM or Google Sheets contact list. Then using preset triggers with tools such as IFTTT, Zapier and Canva, you can create a multitude of marketing automations that will cut down the manual labor of simple marketing tasks. In this next example, we're going to show you how to take the exports above and connect them directly to Canva to complete a postcard that you've prepped with the most current Market Trends Data and then print it with all of your prospect's data added to it. To get started, head over to RPR's Resource Center and choose a Canva postcard template that you'd like to work from. Be sure to select "Use template for new design" to get started. Next, add your photo and update your information for both sides of the postcard–you don't want to accidentally send your mailing out with filler text. Write a compelling introduction of yourself and why it's a good time to buy; better yet, read on and we'll show you how to let our Market Trends ScriptWriter powered by ChatGPT help you craft the perfect message! Before we add our contact data, let's update the Market Trends information with the latest stats. When you're in RPR, head up to Research, then click Residential Market Trends and search for the geography that you executed for your export. This ensures that the data matches the postcard template with the month and the correct data points. Now we're ready to add our prospect's info to the Canva doc! PRO TIP: Looking for the perfect copy to go with your postcard? Click "Create Script" to give our AI-powered Market Trends ScriptWriter a try. You can easily generate Metric Analyses and Social campaigns, and the copy generated can easily flow into to your postcard. From the left side navigation menu, go to "Apps," and go down to "More from Canva" and select "Bulk create." Maybe in the future, there'll be a "Bulk create from RPR," but for now, select "Bulk create." You essentially have two options here, you can manually enter your data or upload a CSV file. Let's click "Upload CSV" select your list, and all of your fields will be listed by the column headers. PRO TIP: Before you upload your list, open it up and delete any extra fields that you think won't be necessary. Since we are prospecting to potential buyers, we won't be needing the owner's information that by default comes with the export. Next, we're going to connect our data to text fields. So, add a few text fields to the backside of the postcard template. For the greeting, make it fun, since you don't know the person who is renting the property, you could address it to "Future Homeowner." For the next text field, right click it and select "Connect Data." Canva will then present you the list of all your data fields, select "Property Full Address," or whichever combination of fields that you need to complete your mailing. After you have set up your data and added all of your personal information and market data, click "Continue." This will take your data and merge it into a new Canva Doc that you can now send out for print. Pretty cool, huh?! To view the original article, visit the RPR

How RPR Can Enhance Your Real Estate Marketing Strategy
With interest rates still high and inventory still down, agents across the country are feeling the pinch. However, now is actually the perfect time for REALTORS® to re-evaluate and revamp their marketing strategies. And RPR® (Realtors Property Resource®) can help you do it! Yes, the current market can be frustrating. But savvy, seasoned agents know that now is the time to plan for the future. You zig while they zag! And investing in yourself and your brand, through RPR's data and tools, is a smart way to approach it. Here are a few ways RPR can enhance your real estate marketing strategies… Analyze market data using RPR RPR offers up-to-date market data, including market types, active listings, recent sales and inventory levels. RPR Market Trends, a collection of charts, graphs and statistics, can help you and your clients keep up with the dynamic, ever-changing real estate market. But best of all, these housing stats are based on local markets. That means you can drill down and zone-in on specific areas versus quoting numbers on a regional or national level, which helps you market yourself as the local market expert! To get started, just visit RPR, and from the homepage, click on Research. From the dropdown menu, select Residential Market Trends. Now, conduct a search in the location bar. Start as high as state, county or city. Better yet, use ZIP codes and neighborhood names to get really hyper-local! Now, here's where the "analyze" part comes in! From your Market Trends search, click the icon in the upper right that says Create Script. This is the RPR Market Trends ScriptWriter tool and it uses AI ChatGPT tech to create housing market "explainer" copy for you. For this example, we choose "Engaging" for the tone, "Sellers" for the audience, and "Analyze Metrics" as the action. This was for a ZIP code in southern California. Here are the results, which happen in seconds! Ladies and gentlemen, today we are going to dive into some fascinating real estate metrics that will surely grab your attention. If you are a seller, this information is crucial for understanding the current state of the market and maximizing the value of your property. So, let's get started!​First on our list is the "Months Supply of Inventory," which currently stands at a remarkable 1.09. This metric refers to the number of months it would take to sell all the homes on the market if no new listings were added. A low number like 1.09 indicates a strong seller's market, where demand outweighs supply, granting sellers an upper hand in negotiations.​But what's even more intriguing is the "12-Month Change in Months of Inventory," which shows a jaw-dropping -23.78% decrease. This means that in the past year, the number of homes available for sale has dramatically declined, indicating an even stronger seller's market. With fewer options for buyers to choose from, your property becomes a hot commodity, potentially leading to faster sales and higher prices.​Now, let's talk about the "Median Days Homes Are on the Market," which currently stands at a mere 8 days. Yes, you heard it right, just 8 days! This astonishingly low number indicates that homes are flying off the market at lightning speed. Buyers are eager to snatch up properties, and if you are a seller, this means you can expect a swift transaction. So get ready to pack your bags and move on to your next adventure!​Moving on, we have the "List to Sold Price Percentage," which stands at an impressive 100.6%. This metric showcases the relationship between the initial list price of a property and the final sold price. A percentage above 100 indicates that homes are selling for more than their initial asking price. In other words, sellers are not only getting what they hoped for but often even exceeding their expectations. It's a dream come true for anyone looking to sell their property.​Lastly, let's talk numbers – the "Median Sold Price" currently sits at a fantastic $850,000. This figure represents the middle point of all the sold prices in the market. It's a testament to the high-value properties being sold in the area. So if you are a seller, this indicates the potential for a substantial return on your investment. You could be looking at a handsome sum when your property sells.​In conclusion, dear sellers, the real estate market is currently on fire, and you have all the reasons to be excited. With a record-low supply of inventory, homes selling within days, prices exceeding expectations, and a sky-high list-to-sold price percentage, your property is in high demand. So take advantage of this extraordinary market and make the most of your selling experience. Good luck, and happy selling! As you can see, terms such as "Months Supply of Inventory" and "List to Sold Price Percentage" aren't just rattled off — they're presented and explained in a very easy to understand manner. This is the type of information you can send to clients, post on your social channels or include in direct mail pieces. Right now, homeowners need data and information on their homes in their area. Be the one who delivers it to them! Also, remember that you don't have to include every single word of the Analyze Metrics script that is created for you. Edit it down and only include two terms or one market indicator. Use your own words and fill in gaps with your own local expertise. It's simply a starting point that you perfect into a compelling piece of communication.
