Laury Davis and Scott Lincicome, owners/brokers at Lifestyle Property Partners, joined us at the NAR nugget stage to talk about internet leads vs your sphere. Why the former sucks and the latter rocks.
Let’s start with some examples of an internet lead?
- Forced registrations off your website.
- People on vacation curious about the house prices.
- Renters wondering about the price of the home they’re in.
- Owners curious about the value of their own home or their neighbor’s home.
- Bored people who are watching too much HGTV.
