You will not. It is a PLATFORM not a lead generation site.

To get listings you need to be approved by different lenders.

YOu also need to buy zip codes like $10/mo/zip.  It is one of a platform(s) for sumbitting short sales which you need to pay.

97% agents who signed up do not hear or get any leads.

I got 1 REO listing after 5 years. Very few agents get leads.

REO's make you use the system but I've never gotten anything from it. My short sales use it also.

I think if you are looking for leads you've got to get direct with a bank. They of course just want you to pay.

I think it's a decent way to get in front of banks but you are about SIX years too late. Unless of course your area is still hit with foreclosures and shorts.

Equator (which used to be REOTRANS) is a platform to manage REO listings and Short Sales.  When the foreclosure crisis hit, ReoTrans was a key site for agents that wanted to get in front banks and get their listings. Banks that used the site actually required you to join if you wanted to get the listing or manage the short. Bank of America for instance use to run all of their shorts through Equator and I believe the still do. I did well over 100 reo's & shorts using this platform from '08 to '11. When I first signed up with them the cost was about $295 per year.

I doubt if anyone looks at your profile. It's mainly used for processing short sales, bank owned, etc. It's not really a promotional tool. Equator was sold to Altisource, but I suppose it still functions the same way.

HI, Maureen...What are you hoping to get out of equator? I'm signed up, but that's only to help with short sales and when I get bank owned listings. I quit paying for zip codes with them several years ago. That didn't do anything for me.

I haven't used Equator in several years.  I don't list REO's and foreclosures are few in my market.

The idea is that REO asset managers might see you and want you to do list their properties. When you use the system for a transaction there is a fee paid to Equator that is charged to the agent or to the buyer. I don't do REO's anymore.They are not worth the time required for such little pay.

I only have to deal with Equator when working short sales, where I am representing the buyer.  I will not list a short sale as the listing agent.
