In the many years I have been in the Real Estate Industry I have always wondered "why" some Brokers and Agents purchase Leads from networks and companies that (don't) sell Real Estate.
The way I see it ... why doesn't MLS and or Real Estate Divisions across the Nation either sell or give leads to Brokers & Agents in every State, City and Town across the Nation?
10 years ago Vegas Bob paid for leads for one year with "Zero" return.
And 4 years ago I paid Zillow for 6 months and spring of 2015 for leads on a weak zip code in Henderson Nevada with "Zero" return ;o(
Now if Brokers and Agents want to purchase "Prime" zip codes in certain areas across the nation they can pay up to $3,000 dollars per month ... WTF!!!
And that being said it has crossed my mind many times over the years ... "Why doesn't Vegas Bob create his own Lead Generating Network"?
Build it, sell Leads to Brokers/Agents and then after 1-2-3 years turn around and sell it to Zillow and or another Lead Generating Network for several million!!!
