8 powerful resources for building a lead capture system

Building a high-converting lead capture system is appealing to many real estate agents, but the process of building the lead forms and pages can be a complex and daunting process. It’s doesn’t need to be this way. After all, as a REALTOR® you have access to RPR reports, which work great as a lead magnet—the offer you have for prospects in return for their contact Information.

If your goal is to attract people looking to sell a home, you may want to offer an RPR Market Activity Report, which highlights current market opportunities, or a request for a free home valuation. If you’re looking to attract buyers, try offering a Market Activity Report customized with an upcoming open house schedule or new homes on the market.
