Better results for your free real estate advertising
Connecting with home buyers on Homes.com starts with your MyHomes profile. With your profile you can connect directly with local home buyers who are actively searching for real estate in your area.
For best results, simply login to your account and complete your profile. Here are 5 steps to complete your MyHomes profile:
Tip 1: Update profile information and add your photo. How do you want potential clients to contact you? In the “my profile” section, add your phone number and email address. When updating your information, make sure to keep your email address up-to-date in order to receive alerts and potential leads.
Updating your information is also a great way to showcase your credentials and specific areas of expertise. Don’t forget to also add a recent photo.
Tip 2: Add coverage areas. A coverage area is a city you want your profile to display in the Homes.com Agent Directory. Upon your initial sign up, your profile designates your office location as your coverage area so it’s up to you to add more coverage areas.
Extra tip: For more exposure on Homes.com, make sure you add up to 5 cities for your coverage areas.
Tip 3: Request Client endorsements. Show potential clients your professional success. In the “endorsements” section of your account, send invitations to clients, family and friends via email. Once they submit an endorsement, you must approve it before it is shown on your profile.
Extra tip: Agents in all local areas are ranked by the total number of endorsements an agent has. To move up the rankings of your city, simply add endorsements to your account.
Tip 4: Set Q & A Alerts. The Questions and Answers section of Homes.com allows consumers to ask real estate related questions to real estate professionals. It’s a great place for agents to not only meet future clients, but show off their expertise in the field.
Q&A has no limit on your coverage areas. In fact, you can set an unlimited number of alerts, including cities, locations and topics in the Q & A section of your account.
Extra tip: Set alerts in your local cities for topics you consider yourself an expert in. For example, if local market conditions is your expertise, make sure to add alerts for each of your local cities. Remember, 93% of real estate agents who respond first to inquiries, win the lead.
Tip 5: Claim your listings. Are your listings on Homes.com? If so, you may be in basic status and are not taking full advantage of advertising your listings on Homes.com. To increase your amount of listing leads, claim your listings.
If your listings are not on Homes.com, add them to your profile. Agents with a listing package receive up to 7 times more leads from Homes.com than agents who do not.
