Law Firms Use Foreclosure Data to Generate Leads
There’s More for Your Practice than Bankruptcies
Bankruptcy is a stopgap for the inevitable. And a lot of real estate attorneys expend a lot of effort marketing their bankruptcy services.
There are two things to keep in mind, though. One: In most places, filing for bankruptcy is pretty simple and straightforward, so an attorney often is not needed – something people having money problems are often quick to figure out.
Two: There are alternatives to bankruptcy that can help homeowners keep their properties – forbearance, deed in lieu, debt settlement, and repayment plans. A good real estate attorney should market those services.
But a good real estate attorney also needs to know how to find clients to market their services to. That’s where ATTOM Data Solutions lead generation tools can offer a significant competitive advantage.
There are Also Alternatives to Association Lien Foreclosures
A lot of real estate attorneys looking to find clients who are in distress go straight for association lien foreclosures. ATTOM provides lien foreclosure data that makes searching and finding clients easy.
The key to a fruitful search, of course, is the quality of the data. Because while good real estate attorneys know what to look for, they also need to know they’re getting access to the latest and best data there is.

And with literally billions of possible data points at their disposal, attorneys can zero in on exactly the areas, the types of clients, or the stages of foreclosure that most fits their strategies and needs.
The Data at Your Fingertips
When you’re culling through data, it’s critical to know what it can do for you. Top-tier data can tell you the basics – who owns a property, how much it’s worth, when it was built, how many rooms. But knowing a property’s history or it’s similarities and differences to other properties in the same neighborhood can lead to much more informed and detailed databases from which to work.
It also helps to know what kinds of legal issues a property has or might have once had. ATTOM’s foreclosure database can steer you through all of this. It puts you in touch with data is collected from more than 2,200 counties nationwide – that’s more than 90 percent of the U.S. population.
