I don't think you need to use RedX in order to prospect expireds and FSBOs. There are plenty of ways to develop these niche markets

You can work fsbo and expires without either of these.  Use that money to market your business and work fsbo and expires the old fashion way.

There is no need for a pricey system.  You can get the information on FSBOs & expireds yourself for free.  Follow-up can be managed pretty easily without an expensive system.

"Should I?"

What do you have the most of time or money?

FSBO. Funny thing about them is they all have a sign in the yard. You don't need Vulcan or Redx to tell you that.

Expired. Funny thing about them is when you pay Vulcan or Redx you pay to be a member of the dog pack that places the homeowner under siege. You should talk to an Expired and FSBO and make a decision if you want to be one of the dogpack agents they describe.

What you need to have the answer to is directly related to the question these owner have. Don't pay someone to tell you what that question is, that how they dogpack formed, but do your own research.

Then you will know what is best for you?

Money or Time?

Far too many newer agents sell themselves short and resort to desperate measures like this.

There are much bettter and cheaper ways to get clients.
