Why the Vacant Niche

Is Worth Pursuing

Our members are always asking which niche they should target and which books they should order to be successful in that niche.

It depends on your area, your market and how you want to pursue those leads.

What’s one of the most surefire ways to make sure you get listings?

Targeting niches that aren’t overcrowded and face less competition.

Vacant homes are one of the least competitive niches. Most agents gloss over them, and the leads are so easy to find.

Finding Vacant Leads

Once you get good leads, chances are you’ll be the only agent pursuing the owner.

Then, you can use your books to convince the owners this is the best outcome for them.

Vacant homes are often still utilized as rental or lease income.

A vacant designation just means this is not the owner’s primary residence, for whatever reason that might be.

Once you get vacant leads, you can show them that selling the home is their best option.

Warm Calling is Key

I’ve tested out dozens of different strategies for getting listings. And after years of testing and tweaking, here is the best strategy I have found. It’s called “warm calling.”

Warm calling is when you send out a copy of your book and follow up on the phone or at their door about four to five days later.

We’ve seen tremendous results from warm calling.

Mastered Vacant Leads

It really is the best way to contact a lead.

This is exactly what a member did.

Steve has been a member with us for over a year now.

When I spoke with him, he had 6 listings, all in the vacant and luxury market.

His trick is different than normal direct mail with the book.

Your Vacant

Listing Presentation

Giving a listing presentation to a vacant home owner is probably going to be different than a normal presentation.

You may need to convince them that their home should be sold, as opposed to convincing them you are different from other agents.

If you are in this deep with a vacant, you are probably the only Realtor they’re speaking with.
