October 11, 2023 written by Fello
As a real estate agent, getting those precious home value leads is a major thrill. But the real magic happens in the follow-up. Effective follow-up can be the difference between a lead and a listing.
In this blog, we'll explore seven proven ways to follow up with home value leads:
1. Send the first follow-up within 12 hours
The secret sauce to lead conversion? Timely and personalized communication. The data shows that when you receive a home value lead, don't delay—reach out swiftly. Your initial contact should be warm and personal, using the lead's name.
When: Immediately or ASAP
2. Get on a call with them to offer more assistance
When you get a new lead, a good old phone call is the best way to demonstrate a more personalized follow-up. But before you call, make sure you know more about the property and the contact. Details like their mortgage, equity, and propensity score can help you figure out if the lead is a potential seller.
After all, you don't want to be marked as spam in their phone book. Get started with the following call scripts to follow-ups with your next Home Value Leads: Sample Scripts for Agents.

The first 30 days after you receive a home value lead are super important. To turn these leads into clients, you have to be there with the right message when they need it. Using a text sequence during this time can help you stay on their radar. Here’s a ready-to-use Automated Text Sequence for you.
4. Move to longer-term nurturing strategies
Consistency is key in lead conversion. It often takes several interactions before a lead takes action. Create a follow-up plan and stick to it. Send emails, make calls, or drop a friendly text to keep the connection alive. You want to be memorable, but not overwhelming.
One commonly used follow-up method used by sales teams across industries is the 2x2x2
