Pre-Movers Database (FSBO)

The Pre-Mover database is comprised of consumers who currently have listed their home for sale. The ability to identify households before they move is immensely valuable to marketers for selling products and services. The buying and selling of a home begins a series of critical, valuable and educated buying decisions by the consumer. Utilize this data to maximize ROI as you find households during the critical “eager-to-buy” phase before and during the move.

The Pre-Mover database is compiled from public and private sources that identify the address of consumers who have currently listed their home for sale. These records are acquired daily and the Pre-Mover file is built bi-weekly. This is a 3-month rolling file.

These addresses are matched to a consumer list to apply a name and additional demographic data that is available for selection. Approximately 60% of the file has a consumer name associated with the address. Records may be purchased with a consumer name or without.
