First, identify the “active market”, those qualified buyer leads who will actually close escrow. You want to spend your time talking to people that are ready to make a buying decision right now.

Get expired listings. If you think about it, they were motivated enough to list their house, but then it didn’t sell. Chances are, they still want to sell it, and may be upset with their agent for not selling it. The number one complaint I have heard from people about their agent is lack of communication. Even if the agent was doing a good job, the seller never knew, and assumed the worse. Start a postcard marketing campaign that talks about your high level of communication. Be sure to hand deliver your first marketing packet THE DAY THE LISTING EXPIRED. Now that is fast communication!

The major reason that people don’t sell their homes themselves is because they do not have the time and patience it takes to sell the home. Home sellers find themselves racing for the phone every time it rings because they don’t want to miss out on a deal. Selling real estate in Florida can be made easier through use of a for sale by owner, FSBO, website.
It is interesting to note that one of the first things that ‘falls to the side’ when agents get busy is the prospecting and client contact. The agents focus on the current deals and forget about relationship building. This then produces ‘peaks and valleys’ in income and listings.
