Now that many of our agents are using Cloud CMA I want to share with you one of the best tools available with your Cloud CMA Subscription. Cloud CMA is so much more than a Comparative Market Analysis tool for your listing presentations. Don’t get me wrong, its greatest feature is the CMA. However, there are many more uses this product is good for. One of them is generating home value leads. The market is hot and home values are on the top of every consumers mind. Using the Cloud CMA Home Value API Key is a sure way you can start getting seller leads today on your website.
Below I will give you each step for setting this up on your website. First take a peek at how it looks and how it works. Click on the photo below and go visit the site yourself.
Step 1: Log on to your Cloud CMA Account. (If you are a RE/MAX Gold Agent you can activate a new account right now by going here: https://cloudcma.com/signup/plans/REMAX_NORCAL_GOLD) Once logged in, select the setting tab along the top.
Step 2: Select the API link on the setting page.
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the Cloud CMA API Page to where it say “API BUTTONS”. As a side note, you can click on the social icons and actually post this home value page to your Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest page right from here as well. Pretty Cool! What I want you to do is cut and past the “URL” link in the box into a new open browser tab on your computer.
Step 4: Once you have pasted the link into a new browser you should see this page.
Step 5: Now you need to log on to your remax.net MainStreet home page and select “MY Leads” Which is a short cut link to LeadStreet.
Step 6: Once in LeadStreet, you need to click on “Site Builder” link from the top navigation.
Step 7: When you open the “Site Builder tab, it should default to the “Pages” tab. If not, select the “Pages” tab.
Step 8: Scroll to the bottom of this page till you see “Add New – Main Navigation Button. Click on this link.
Step 9: This will open a box that looks like this. In the “Button Text” box add the following text “Home Values” .
Step 10: In the same screen, put the number 3 in the “Sort Value Box”. This tells the website where along the navigation bar to put the button. Three is a good value as it will make the link the second or third in line.
Step 11: In the same screen select “Custom URL” button
Step 12: You now need to go back to your Cloud CMA Home Value Page and coy the URL link.
Step 13: Now go back to the RE/MAX LeadStreet, Site Builder, Navigation editing box and paste the URL into this box.
Step 14: Click on the “Add Navigation Button”
Step 15: This will take you back to the main Site Builder page inside LeadStreet. Now just click on “View Website” and you will now see your Home Value Link on the Top Navigation of your website.
Your final page should look like this. Or somewhat different given you might be using a different template design and your site will look very different. The results will be the same in that the button should show up.
I hope this helps you grow your business and generate seller leads. If there are other topics and or tools you would like to learn about, leave a comment below.
