When inventory is low, competition for listings is fierce. Here are 8 things agents can do to get more listings.
1. Stay in touch with past clients
Real estate agents can maintain good relationships with past clients by sending them regular newsletters, personalized email, text messages, or even phone calls. This will keep them engaged with the clients and they will remember the agent when it comes time to sell their property or refer someone else.
2. Attend community events
Real estate agents can attend community events such as charity functions, local fairs, or sports events, etc. These social situations create opportunities for an agent to meet new people who may be interested in selling their homes.
3. Host open houses
Hosting open houses is a great way to get more listings. It allows the agent to showcase their expertise and knowledge of the local real estate market while connecting with potential clients.
4. Use social media
Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter are effective marketing tools. Agents can use these platforms to promote their services, highlight their expertise and showcase their listings.
5. Network with other agents
Connecting with other real estate agents can be beneficial, especially if they have a pipeline of listings that they’re looking to offload.
6. Leverage referral networks
Real estate agents can leverage referral networks by partnering with business owners, financial advisors, mortgage brokers, and other professionals to refer clients to each other.
7. Invest in marketing
Advertising is essential for agents to get more listings. They can invest in targeted online ads, search engine optimization (SEO), print media, and other types of advertising to get their name out.
