Three Things We Learned From This Episode
- REO is making a comeback
REO today is different from REO in 2008, but it’s still here and still a great place for us to make money. In fact, we’re more likely to get business with REO than with any other type of listing in real estate.
- More signs in the ground mean more leads
One of the massive benefits of REO is that it allows us to get more signs in the ground. REO is a lead magnet, and the more we can get our names out there on signs, the more business we’ll get.
- Market REOs differently
When it comes to REO, detail is everything. We need to go out of our way to market ourselves differently. We need to listen to what people in our markets are saying, and deliver a tailored solution to their problems. Connections are vital in REO, so be sure to connect with as many people as possible, and as deeply as possible.
REO saw a boom in 2008, and it’s unlikely that today’s market will be too similar to what we saw in the wake of the financial crisis. However, REO remains a great place for agents to make a profit, and even if the space is different in today’s market, the opportunities are still endless. REO allows us to get signs in the ground and make more profit than any other space in real estate, so it’s a great idea for agents to get involved. Build connections with other agents in the space, and think outside the box when it comes to marketing. REO offers so many benefits; we need to take advantage of them today.
