Don't buy leads from USHUD.com
Posted by Upsetagent on 05/31/2011
I received a call from a representative at USHUD.com who made plenty of promises he knew he couldn't keep but they figure there will always be someone else they can scam when I quit anyway. They charge $195 per month to be the exclusive agent in your market but what they don't tell you is they have 4 separate websites so they can sell 4 people n every market. That wouldn't be a deal breaker if they could provide the quality leads they promised. They run adds for cheap repos and provide you with leads from people who can't get a loan and want repo's for practically nothing. I received around a dozen leads and all of them were like that. I talked to an agent who said he was quitting after 4 months and he hasn't received one "good lead". They do allow you to cancel but they don't return your fee for the month you cancel and I was convinced it was a scam after 4 days. The salesman said the vast majority of leads I will get are from buyers of $160,000 to $250,000 homes. NOT!

If it sounds too good to be true . . . . .

... it probably is.

I can't say necessarily whether the pitch sounded too good to be true. It sounds like the leads were suppose to be sellable, which isn't much to ask for considering. Lead brokers in general tend to sell pee and call it wine.

I just happened to run across this post and I have to say that I can not agree with you. My client service representative made me very aware of multiple websites which I know from my experience are not marketed together. He also informed me that I was not going to close every lead that came through, but was correct when he said I would be closing about 1 out of 11. So far so good, just wanted to give some food for thought from a success story.

US HUD is a ripoff. I was promised 30 leads a month. I received 2 and both already had Realtors. In addition, they stated they were forced to complete the application to view homes. These are NOT quality leads, nor anywhere near the amount I was promised. The account services are hard to get a hold of, and they will not refund. Stay away from them. Total scam. I could sell names that don't want to talk to you for $200 a month, too

I've been in the real estate business for over a decade and my business is booming . Against my better judgement when contacted by USHUD.COM I decided to give it a try . Only 1 agent per city , unlimited leads for a month for a $195 fee/ month , you could cancel the following month if you decided to. Sounded alright , even if 1 legitimate lead had been generated it would have paid for iteself... right ? Well, let me tell you not only did I not receive a single response to my emails or phone calls to these so called leads I even received one with the name Candy Von Peppermint ..I mean that pretty much sums it up.

When I did give notice (by email and phone call) before my first month was up that I wanted to cancel I was again billed $195. When I called in to speak with customer service about the unauthorized charge I spoke with a rude individual who told me that the reason I didn't receive a response from any of the so called "leads" they sent me was because a phone call and email isn't enough contact to get someone to respond if they are an interested buyer WOW . Please do not fall for this scam of a company like I did .

thank you all, for taking the time to write these reviews.
I was contacted by one of their reps yesterday, and needed some advice before I jump in. Now I know, and most definitely won't sign up with them. thanks again.

Horrible company with professional pitchmen who have no morals or an honest bone in their body. I was told I would have an exclusive area, however, come to find out this was the first lie. Not only are they masquerading as leads or Realtors but, also for loan originators. Using the same lead for both professions. I can't believe they had the nerve to email me a year later wanting me to use their service... Ridiculous website and company.....

It's all about lead management, and nurturing the potential's until they are ready to buy. Even if it's 6 months to a year.

Stop buying leads and expecting A buyers when you KNOW they are all sub-prime.
