Our typical VA buyers come to us seeking knowledge on how they can use their VA benefits to purchase a home.
This page serves as a resource for Real Estate agents to learn how to help and attract VA buyers.
Organic VA leads are hard to come by, but possible. Below are our personal recommendations that we’ve implemented within our business and received great results.
There are programs that provide leadgen for Real Estate agents where Real Estate agents give part of their commission to VA members. Popular programs include –
Homes for Heros – As a Realtor you give 30% of your commission. The customer received 25% and the other 5% goes to the program.
Veterans United – Does around the same thing.
One thing to note about these types of programs is that sometimes they do not allow you to join other programs. These programs are primarily about lead gen – although they do benefit Veterans, it’s coming out of your pocket.
We advise real estate agents to careful with these programs – sometimes it can get out of hand, and the companies which put these programs together take a large chunk of your earnings.
These companies know you are eager to get your hands on VA buyers, and do anything they can to get you to sign up without disclosing how much of your paycheck you will be giving them.
We suggest tapping into other alternatives of lead generation – such as working on your website’s SEO, social media marketing, Google ads, and asking your friends, family, and sphere of influence for their help.
One of the best things you can do for our Veterans is educating yourself on the VA loan process and sharing that information with your VA clients. Below is a list of resources completely free for you to learn about the VA home loan process to help your clients. You can also ask us anytime.
