The company slogan promotes FreedomSoft as the only all-inclusive product offering “push-button real estate investing”. After comparing FreedomSoft and three of its strongest competitors, we believe that the FreedomSoft system certainly delivers on that promise.
What Is FreedomSoft?
FreedomSoft is a complete software system that brings together all the software tools required to be successful investing in real estate and integrates them into one cohesive package that is designed to be user friendly. The software allows anyone, regardless of experience level, to begin investing in real estate.
FreedomSoft is specifically designed to be an all-inclusive, turnkey solution with every tool needed for every stage of the deal all seamlessly integrated into a single cohesive package. Let’s take a look at the key features and tools included in the FreedomSoft System.
Quick Start Success Forum & Training Videos
Quick Start Success training videos are included in the system and can be used as often as needed for personal instruction or to help new hires learn how-to get the most out of the system’s key features. Users can find even more in-depth advice, tips, and tricks in the user forums
The FreedomSoft Cash Buyer Database
The FreedomSoft Cash Buyer Database is the proprietary lead generating resource that users will rely on to provide them with the contact information of motivated property sellers and buyers actively looking to purchase property. The FreedomSoft system includes full access to a nationwide database of cash buyers and allows users to conduct unlimited searches of as many geographic locations as they desire.
Built-in filters allow users to narrow the focus of database searches and generate a list of leads by state, city, county, or zip code. Search results will disclose the name and contact information for each buyer, the number of properties they have purchased, the physical addresses of their past purchases, when they purchased each property and how much they paid. Users can then parse these results to create a precisely targeted direct mail campaign with just a few clicks.
Lead Central serves as the center hub of the system’s lead generation and automation platform. Using Lead Central, leads, contacts, and buyers from other systems can be imported into the FreedomSoft system with one click. Outside marketing campaigns, both online and offline, can also be integrated into the FreedomSoft system tools through the Lead Central hub allowing the user to automate all lead capture, organization, and follow-up efforts through one central control hub.
Lead Swiper off-market campaigns are another of the system’s built-in resources. Users have unlimited access to 53 different “Lead Swiper” campaigns which can be used to conduct precision searches and generate customized lists of off-market property leads that are not available to the general public.
Marketing Automation Suite
Workflow Automator automatically assesses individual lead status and completes appropriate tasks at each status change to propel leads forward through the marketing pipeline. Boomerang provides fully integrated e-mail, voice, and text message management including auto-responder capabilities, voice mail, contact information, and report generation.
RehabbersGPS is a number cruncher tool which allows users to quickly type in the known values for a potential investment property and receive a nearly instant cost analysis breakdown. RehabbersGPS offers two powerful analyzers: one for rental property analysis and one for fix and flips. Having a quick, expert analysis available can help users confidently negotiate the best deal possible from contractors through investors. The tool also allows users to gather rehab estimates from local contractors in just a few minutes.
The CEO Suite provides tracking and analysis tools that allow users to assess the productivity or final results of specific campaigns, employees, teams, or projects. The tracking and analysis tools can be customized to suit users needs, and real-time data can be viewed as graphs and comparisons allowing users to gauge a campaign’s strength and make instant marketing adjustments when needed.
A full feature task manager allows the user to assign or reassign tasks to specific team members and follow up on task progress and completion.
