Well if you asked me that specific question to Generation of real estate leadsI would have to say Foreclosures and pre-foreclosure they’re gonna be the next big thing for New generation of real estate leads.

You’ve probably heard that real estate foreclosures by now, as of the April 2007 US Foreclosure Market Report up 3.325% (New Hampshire).

Foreclosure Rates Keep Growing

Recently, USA Today ran an article on the fact that 75% of new home mortgages in California are undocumented loans (some industry experts call them lying loans). These undocumented loans allow the homeowner to use their reported income and often allow them to borrow more money at a higher debt-to-income ratio than they could traditionally. No-doc loans have become very prevalent in recent years and are now widely used across the country.

In my opinion, most of these lying loans are embryonic real estate foreclosures. It’s likely only a matter of time before homeowners get into trouble and go into foreclosure.

More than a million foreclosures each year

According to RealtyTrac®, with whom we have established an exclusive partnership, the number of foreclosures will likely exceed 1.2 million this year if we continue at this rate. To read the full press release of May 15, 2007 for the RealtyTrac® US Foreclosure Market Report, click here.

What this means for the average real estate agent in a market with 100,000 homes is that about 127 new properties will enter some state of foreclosure per month. Some of the not-so-average counties will see 431 new foreclosures per month for those same 100,000 households. So that means there will be 14 new real estate foreclosure listings per day for every 100,000 homes.

If you had the home seller information in a timely manner and were equipped to deal with this specific type of lead, it could mean 100 to 500 new leads each month in a market with 100,000 homes.

Most real estate agents don’t know how to handle foreclosed prospects and generally view them as junk prospects. Therefore, there is very little competition for you in this niche if you become a real estate foreclosure expert.

Combine that with a highly motivated home salesperson and you have a recipe for success in generating new leads.
