Step 1: Find a developer

You need to sign a contract with developers to advertise and sell their properties.

But where to find the real developers? Are you going to roam street by street? Need not.

Go to online portals, search for developers, get their contact number and approach them.

Most developers will sign for a maximum of 2% commission in budget segment and 1% cut in luxury class.

Once you signed the contract with the developer collect the necessary project details to advertise.

Without advertisement you cannot bring footfalls to the site but how to do advertisement without money.

In traditional outbound marketing you cannot do advertisement without money and even getting a credit is also cumbersome as you are new to the market.

So here we need to go for on online real estate advertisement portals.

There are many real estate portals offering the first time users one free listing which you can utilize to advertise your property.

Find all the portals in your country offering free listings and start posting it. Wait for few days. If you get responses then it’s great else create another account using different email id or mobile number and start posting it.

You will get the leads for sure.

The one common complaint all the end buyers predominantly report is agents give false information in order to sell the property. So do not exaggerate anything be prompt and take them through the project as it is.

After a site visit, most prospects won’t pick the call or they will give the token amount immediately either of this can happen.

If they book immediately then it’s great else be patient give them enough breathing time and follow them to close it down.

To manage your leads you can use agent CRM tools like Magicbricks smart Diary (Available for free in app stores)

Most dealers won’t involve in registration their core job is to connect the buyers with developers and take their cut.

You will be paid after formal registration of the property.

You can either repeat the entire process or invest a small amount for an advertisement from your previous business.

Buy more listings from leading online portals, contact more developers, list out many properties and you are on.

In developing countries like India, 75% of property buyers are going through online search before they finalize their property. There is a huge potential for agents/dealers to make the best out of it.
