Real Estate Property Alerts and Appointment Reminders
Property Alerts for Home Buyers - Revenue for Agencies
iRemind can set up a self registration system where buyers can subscribe to receive SMS Alerts when a property fitting their criteria, such as price range, area, number of bedrooms etc., comes onto the market.
The alerts can also be structured on a time basis with subscription to premium alerts providing the subscriber with the option to receive an alert earlier than the standard delivery, allowing early viewing of the property. This can be a billed SMS which charges the subscriber's mobile phone bill for the alerts, having the added advantage of generating a revenue share for the agency.
Send Property Images with MMS
MMS has the advantage of being able to transmit images, and in an industry where product appeal is paramount, inclusion of an image can assist in motivating a buyer.
The subscription service can additionally include the option for the buyer to receive images of the property. These can be included in the standard service, or only be included in the upgraded service.
MMS can be used to supplement agency marketing. Home buyers can SMS a reference number associated with an advertised property and subsequently receive an MMS including pictures, details, viewing times and agent details direct to their phone.
Rent Arrears Reminders
iRemind can successfully be used to remind tenants of overdue rent payments and of outstanding rent debts.
The reminders can also be combined with X-on's Card By Phone service. The SMS reminder will include the option for the renter to text back a keyword and then be phoned by the Card By Phone service allowing them to pay their arrears by credit card.
Reduce Time Wasted with 'No Shows'
The iRemind service is ideal for the Real Estate Industry avoiding the countless hours of agent's time wasted by 'no shows'. Time spent driving to an appointment for a house viewing only to find the buyer fails to turn up is time better spent on motivated buyers.
Missed appointments are often due to forgetfulness, in which case a timely SMS reminder will benefit both the buyer and the agent. If the person making the appointment decides they are not interested after all, the SMS reminder creates awareness that the agent's time is valuable and also provides the opportunity to easily cancel the appointment.
The option also exists for the buyer to change the appointment if preferred.
iRemind provides agents with the ability to check that an appointment arranged for a house viewing is likely to be kept. This not only ensures the most efficient use of the agent's time, but also minimizes the imposition on the vendor who may have altered their plans to accommodate the appointment.
Important Deadline Reminders
At the purchase stage there are also important tasks and deadlines with which both vendor and buyer need to comply, such as the deposit, bank valuations, building and pest inspections, finance approval and settlement.
iRemind can assist vendors and buyers efficiently from the agency perspective as the process can be performed easily and with minimal input from the agent.
Accessing a web interface and sending a reminder can reduce the amount of time an agent spends on the phone ensuring all parties meet deadlines.
Appointment Reminder Delivery
iRemind can deliver appointment reminders via SMS, voice messages to both mobile and landline phones, and via email. The buyer can then respond to confirm, cancel or reschedule the appointment.
An image can also be included in an appointment reminder, for MMS enabled buyers.
Promotional SMS and MMS
A real estate agency will quickly build up a database of clients and other prospects who have opted-in to receive bulletins, be they property investors, or just interested in local properties. There is no better way to maintain a connection with clientele than to remind them regularly of the agency's profile and activity in the local market.
iRemind can be used as a bulk SMS and MMS tool for general agency advertising and property marketing, with low per unit costs making it a very cost effective exercise.
