Tips To Find Buyer Leads

Engage renters with the Absentee filter.

When selecting an area you wish to target, Remine allows you to access public record data through various search filters. One commonly used filter to engage renters is the Absentee filter. Remine helps you pinpoint when a property is not owner-occupied, and chances are the property is being used as a rental. Targeting the current residents of these properties increases your probability of gaining potential buyers.

Be an area expert and farm your neighborhood.

Being an expert takes time but getting started is as easy as committing to specific neighborhoods and consistently building your knowledge of the area and types of properties within it. When focusing on farming for buyer leads in Remine, you can narrow your search by selecting a zip code, a specific neighborhood, a building type, or by pinpointing your desired area on the map.

Pro Marketing Tip: Utilize the Carts feature to send mailers to renters you have identified through this workflow. By adding the selected properties to your Cart and exporting it, you can create a custom campaign for these potential buyers. For more information, sign up to attend the upcoming webinar here.

Tips To Find Listing Leads

Prospect Smarter by using ownership time and mortgage filters.

Make the most of your neighborhood knowledge and prospect smarter in areas where you can infer that an owner might be looking to sell. Whether it be due to criteria like the square footage coupled with ownership time criteria, or the age of their mortgage, Remine offers filters to narrow down your search.

When utilizing the Ownership Time filter, Remine will pull from public record data to show properties on the selected area of the map by the length of time the current owner has owned the property. This tool is beneficial when looking for potential new clients interested in listing their property.

Ownership Time Filter

Remine also offers two filters associated with a mortgage: the Mortgage Age and Mortgage Rate filters. The Mortgage Age filter separates properties by the current interest rate of the active mortgage associated with the property; then, the Mortgage Rate filter narrows down listings further by gathering the current interest rate of the active mortgage associated with the property.

All three filters help equip agents with up-to-date and detailed knowledge that can be leveraged for outreach or targeted marketing efforts.

Hone your seller search by using the Off-Market filter.

After defining an area you are interested in targeting, you can hone your search by filtering out properties that are not currently on the market or recently closed with the Off-Market filter. The Off-Market filter combined with the Ownership Time and Sell Score filters can help predict how likely a property is to list within the next 6 to 12 months. The Sell Score is based upon several data points, including allowing you better target a potential listing lead with the Off-Market filter. The Off-Market filter, combined with the Ownership Time and Sell Score filter, can help predict how likely a property is to list within the next 6 to 12 months.
