How To Get Free Real Estate Leads in 2021

An easy way that you can start to generate free real estate leads is by simply creating and optimizing community pages on your website. While the leads are free, your only investment, if you already have a suitable website platform to build the pages on, is your time.

It’s a really simple strategy that works effectively and quickly, and will start to bring you free real estate leads within weeks.

How To Generate Free Real Estate Leads

Here’s all you need to generate free real estate leads:

  1. A Real Estate Website (We would recommend WordPress Website with IDX)
  2. IDX Service (ShowcaseIDX or iHomefinder)
  3. Time to Invest

The strategy here to generate free real estate leads is to simply build out pages for each of the subdivisions in your market. Start with your highest value targets and work your way down from there.

Step 1: Start Creating A Community Page

Start by building out a community page out on your website. They can be pretty simple, give an introduction to the community, the style and type of homes in there, perhaps a list of the streets that are within the neighborhood.

Here is an example of a Neighborhood in Roseville, CA (Near Sacramento):

Step 2: Add IDX Listings To Your Community Pages

If you perform an advanced search on your website, you can search by subdivision. From this you can create a saved search within your IDX (known as a market in iHomefinder, and a Hotsheet in ShowcaseIDX).

Step 3: Repeat for ALL Subdivisions

Step 4: Reap The Rewards of First Page Placement

Without ANY Further Optimization – The Granite Bay Pointe Page has placed on the first page (Number 4)

Granite Bay Pointe is a neighborhood with homes that run around $850,000+. The first result on Neighborhoods.com is valid; however, the results #2 & #3 for apartments aren’t what someone is searching for in relationship to this neighborhood.

This strategy is a much easier way to rank on Google. Just understand that other real estate agents and brokerages are catching on and building these community and property-type pages too.
