Apex Clients are Sitting on a Goldmine

25-30% OF APEX SELLER LEADS ACTUALLY CONVERT INTO LISTINGS AND SELL

What are the Time Frames of our Seller Leads?

Now that we know for a fact that Apex listing leads actually convert from Leads to Listings up to 25-30% of the time, we need to have an initial contact and follow-up game plan that takes into account TIME FRAME. The reason that time frame is important is that typically follow-up plans are front-heavy – the vast majority of the actions (phone calls, text messages, emails, etc) happen at the beginning, while as more time goes by fewer actions are occurring.

The data so far is showing very clearly that with Apex Seller Leads, as more time goes by the more valuable those Apex leads are, and the greater the chance that they will turn into a listing. For example, we can now tell that in the first 12 months, an Apex lead has on average a 10% chance of turning into a listing. From 12-18 months, an Apex lead has a 15% chance of turning into a listing. From 18-24 months, an Apex lead has on average a 20% chance of turning into a listing. Once we reach 3 years that listing percentage has increased to almost 30% on average. It’s easy to see that the longer these leads have to be nurtured, the more likely they are to turn into a listing.

Ready, Willing, and Able Motivated Seller Leads

So let’s break this down. Let’s say that on March 6th, 2017 you generated 100 Apex leads and then stopped generating any new leads. We can expect that 10% of those initial 100 leads, or 10 of them, will have already turned into listings and sold whether with you or another agent. That leaves us with 90 Apex leads that still have value. Over the next 6-12 months, we can confidently say that at least another 5-10 of those original 100 leads are going to turn into listings. If we take it out to 3 years, we can expect approximately another 15-20 listings from that original 100 leads. Because WE NOW KNOW WHEN these leads are most valuable (the older they are), and when we have the greatest chance of turning them into a listing (after 6-12 months) we should adjust our follow-up methods so that MORE ACTIONS (phone calls, texts, emails, etc) are occurring WHEN the lead has the greatest chance of turning into a listing – as they age! – instead of the vast majority of the actions taking place when they are brand new.

For Apex Lead Source clients that have generated hundreds, or thousands, of aged leads…..you are literally sitting on a gold mine.
