September 29th, 2009 —Newport Beach, CA.
With the turnaround in the Real Estate in progress, new partnership gives agents a new tool to close more deals from better leads.
Roost.com and RealTAG have teamed up to help real estate agents close more transactions from leads, by adding both extensive data about the consumer, as well as real time predictive closure modeling to show agents who is most likely to close.
September 28, 2009 —Newport Beach, CA. iLeads.com® a leading provider of custom predictive scoring and lead intelligence solutions, and Roost.com, the award winning real estate search engine and IDX platform, today announced the integration of the RealTAG lead generation platform for real estate brokers and agents. The RealTAG platform works with over 145 million properties across the United States, today, requires only a prospect’s name and address, and adds over 150 data points about the consumer in real time.
RealTAG is designed to help real estate agents close more transactions from leads, by adding both extensive data about the consumer, as well as real time predictive closure modeling to show agents who is most likely to close. “RealTAG allows real estate agents an unprecedented ability to identify and close the hottest prospects – in real time,” said Drew Warmington, managing partner of iLeads.com, the developers of the RealTAG platform.
“One of the reasons that agents have a distinct competitive advantage in using RealTAG is our proprietary predictive models, commented Warmington. RealTAG’s predictive models are designed to show agents with a simple “A, B, C” score the likelihood of a given new prospect converting into a paying customer. “Our models were designed to bring the advantages that professional marketers have in back office data mining techniques, and bring them to agent’s desktop,” Warmington said. “Combine those powerful models which lead an agent to the best clients, with over 150 data points on the prospect, and we think that traditional Internet leads are a thing of the past”.
- A title check – does the prospect own the property that they represent?
- The last sale date and sale amount?
- The estimated household income?
- The property value and equity on the home?
- The current liens on the property?
- The physical characteristics of the property?
- Does the property have a Notice of Default or Foreclosure filed against it?
- What foreclosures are active in the neighborhood?
- What are the market sales trends within the neighborhood?
- What are the most recent comparable sales in the neighborhood?
“Roost’s proprietary platform was the perfect place for us to add RealTAG to show brokers how valuable Internet leads really can be,” Warmington said. “We’re confident that once an agent calls a Roost generated lead, forearmed with RealTAG, their subsequent closings are going to tell the story of the partnership,” added Warmington.
Unlike other solutions that require either consumer disclosure, or use credit (and are subject to FCRA restrictions), RealTAG™ is built entirely on public data. “That backbone gives us the flexibility to allow our clients to use the product without fear of disclosure or consumer privacy issues,” said Warmington.
