Once you begin adding properties to your BatchLeads account, you can utilize detailed filters in "properties" to find exactly what you're looking for! Haven't imported properties yet? Click HERE to see how to import a list into properties!
Go to "properties" in your menu to see all the addresses saved within your account. You can utilize the "quick filters" across the bottom of the screen to find something with a single click or open the detailed filters with the white "filter" button at the top of the screen with a funnel icon.
There are endless ways to find what you need in your account through filters. You can use them to locate:
- Specific lists and tags you've saved properties under
- Properties on multiple lists to find the most motivated sellers using the list/tag count
- Properties that are/are not vacant or "newly vacant"
- Properties that do/do not have a vacant mailing address
- Saved properties that do/do not have an absentee owner
- Properties you have or have not skip traced ( this also includes addresses you skip traced outside of BatchLeads )
- Properties you have or have not opted out
- Properties you are or are not self managing
- Properties with specific lead statuses you've set (new feature!)
- Specific criteria like date added, location of properties etc. using conditional filters
Section 1 : LISTS & TAGS
In the example below, the user has selected "included" under lists, then selected 2 lists saved in their account (preforeclosures and high equity). They also chose to "exclude" their "Texted - 5/8/22" tag. Once they click "apply filter" at the bottom, the system will "include" both the preforeclosure and high equity lists but will "exclude" any properties that they tagged with "Texted - 5/8/22".
- Included - The system will include properties saved under the lists/tags you choose to view at the same time
- Excluded - The system will exclude any properties saved under your choice of list/tag from your view
The example below now shows the user has selected "exclusively", then kept the same lists selected (preforeclosures and high equity). Once they click "apply filter" at the bottom, the system will cross reference both lists and only show properties that are "exclusively" on BOTH their preforeclosures AND high equity list. Properties that come up after filtering may also be on other lists, but no matter what, they must at least be on all of the lists selected.
- Exclusively - The system will find properties that are exclusively on the lists you specified
Section 2 : LIST / TAG COUNT
These are great filters to use when targeting properties in your account saved under multiple lists / tags. We call this "list stacking"! Stacking your lists or tags together will help you locate property owners with the highest motivation and properties with the most pain. Doing this will ultimately bring your cost per lead / cost per contract down in the long run.
To learn more about list stacking and why it's so important, click HERE. In the example below, the user has adjusted the "list count" bar to only show properties saved on 3 or more lists once they click "apply filter". If the area above for filtering lists and tags is clear, the system will cross reference ALL the lists in your account. You could even put a "property vacant" filter on top of this to find properties that are on 3 or more lists but are ALSO vacant!
After filtering using the "list count" for example, you'll be able to see the number of lists an address is in. You can even use the tiny arrow buttons (right next to "list count" and circled in the image below) to switch the order from greatest to least/vice versa). You're able to click on an address to open the details and you'll be able to view exactly what lists/tags the property is on!
If you want to take a closer look at the lists a property falls under, click on an address (highlighted in image above on the left)
and click on the "lists/tags" tab! (shown below) For example, the property open in the image below is on this users property vacant, absentee owners, tired landlords, expired listings AND property liens lists!! Talk about motivation!
Section 3 : ADDITIONAL FILTERS ( vacant, skip traced, etc. )
See the image below to view all the additional filters.
- Property Vacant - BatchLeads vacant data is updated monthly and is backed by the United States Postal Service (USPS) so you can find all the properties saved in your account that are or are not currently vacant. You also have the ability to filter out "newly vacant" properties. The data is updated anywhere from the 1st to the 5th of each month, so if it were, for example the 12th on May and you filtered "newly vacant" properties, the system would locate all addresses that became newly vacant as of the month of April.
- Mailing Vacant - Locate properties with vacant mailing addresses.
- Absentee - Find out which addresses have owners that currently reside at the property they own or not (if they are absent from the property they own), as well as if they are absent from that property but still in state or completely out of state.
- Skip Traced - Locate the property addresses you have or have not skip traced yet. (This included any properties you imported that you skip traced outside of BatchLeads). Skip tracing an address will locate the property owners' contact information like cell phone numbers, landlines and email addresses.
- Opted Out - Find properties you have or have not opted out ( addresses you have placed a sort of invisibility cloak over to avoid marketing to them )
- Self - Managed - You can locate properties you may have decided to self-manage ( BatchLeads won't automatically update your property records if they are self managed. This is done manually when you import a new list of probates for example ).
Section 4: LEAD STATUS (new feature)
All of your properties will begin with a "New" leads status, but you have the ability to change these! There is no right or wrong way to use these, they only provide a unique way to categorize your leads and organize them in a new way. To change a lead status on a property, click on an address (highlighted in example below).
Once you select and address and are viewing the property details, you can change the "lead status" to what ever you prefer in the top right hand corner! ( This is completely up to you, so make it your own! )
Once you start utilizing lead statuses, you can open your filters and find specific properties you've placed under certain statuses!
Section 5 : CONDITIONAL FILTERS
Adding conditional filters are great for finding properties with even more specific criteria, like date added, the property owners' name, property address, phone numbers etc. There is also a blue addition button available to add multiple conditional filters!
Section 6: Quick Filters
Your quick filters will always be changing as BatchLeads is constantly updating your saved data and categorizing it for you. To learn more about Quick Filters CLICK HERE
After you find exactly what you've been looking for in your properties, you can select them and use bulk actions to skip trace, start a campaign and so much more! Click HERE to learn more about using bulk actions!
