FSBO Marketing Plan

FSBO and Expired Marketing

If you are doing Expired Marketing, you should add FSBO. If you are doing FSBO, you should add Expired. The systems, skills, and resources are the same.

I spoke to a client this week who has been doing $100,000-$200,000 GCI per year of Expired Marketing, but had not yet added FSBO even as the market shifted and FSBO count has grown.

Agent Splits for Teams-Brokerages: Team Deals vs. SOI Deals

I had breakfast with a top client this week and discussed agent splits. How much are you paying your Buyer's Agents for team leads? How much do you pay for their own SOI/Client leads? How much do you pay as referral fee for seller leads they give to you? Do you let your Buyer's Agent do listings? Tell me your numbers and I will give you some feedback. My concern is that sometimes the team is paying too high of a split for SOI/Client leads and the agent may be doing a decent number of deals, but profit on agent is much lower because most deals are SOI/Client and they tend to work team leads far less Does this ring a bell?
