    hi,

    i am not from the US and have limited knowledge of businesses in the US. In general, do you think that the average real estate broker / agent with an average or poor looking website would have 50-100 odd property portfolio they could advertise on CL?

    I would like some insight into this,

    thanks

    thanks angelas,

    and do you think that the average small real estate agent has 50+ portfolio to advertise?

    Just curious.

    I would say every agent works for a broker and every broker has way more than 50 properties to advertise in most citys.

    plus agents get paid if they sell another agents listing, just not as much.

    Agents split the commission.

    What you should do is go ahead and post ads for them, use a google voice number for the buyer to call, and then sell the leads for around $20 for each CALLER.

    If you think you're a real smooth talker, you might could arrange for 25% of their commission for yourself for every buyer that buys a home through them. REA usually have a 5-7% commission...so if you get 25% of 5% that's 1.25% of the home value aka $1,250 per $100,000 home value.

    So if you get 20 CALLS from your ads a day and one eventually converts for the agent out of that 20 and buys a $100,000 home, you get $1,250.

    I have some information sources for people that want to learn these kinds of things in more detail...I might start a thread on it if there's enough interest.

    first off u cannot get a referral from a lead unless u have an active license...i mean u may find agent that will do it but it is against the law for agents to do so...not trying to blow u up man just stating the facts

    YOu need a state license to be a broker or an agent, YOU need to start as an RE agent for maybe 2 years before you are qualified to apply to be an Broker and have agents work undeer you. That is you get part of there commisions. As a broker you have expenses, like the advertising bill and desks space,office space, phone bill,etc.
