Your Untapped Lead Gen Source: Lenders
92% of consumers trust a referral from someone they know. In 2021, 68% of home sellers noted their real estate agent was a direct referral from family or friends.
This is good news for agents as referred customers have a nearly 30% higher conversion rate than typical lead gen sources which historically return a mere 1-3%. Given those statistics, why aren’t we placing more emphasis on building relationships and a network with other professionals who can refer us business on a more regular basis?
Beyond the friend and family connection, there is an untapped lead source that real estate professionals can use to generate leads consistently – lenders. Service professionals such as mortgage brokers and even financial advisors can fill the referral gap as they interact with clients who are navigating real estate investments.
