As a real estate company, effective communication with potential buyers and sellers is crucial for success. However, managing multiple channels of communication can be costly and time-consuming. Communicat-O, an application for Salesforce CRM, addresses this challenge by bringing together multiple social media platforms and messaging channels under one user interface. This allows real estate companies to streamline their communication processes and manage all channels in one place, increasing efficiency and saving time.
Additionally, Communicat-O stores all lead-related information, providing valuable insights into potential buyers’ behavior and preferences. This information can be used to better understand target audiences and tailor communication strategies accordingly. In this blog post, we will explore four ways text messaging can help real estate companies cut costs and close more deals, covering all touchpoints of the customer journey and innovative ways to automate them while integrating Communicat-O.
The first touchpoint in the customer journey is lead generation. Traditionally, this involved cold-calling or emailing potential leads. However, with the rise of spam filters and the do-not-call registry, these methods have become less effective.
Text messaging, on the other hand, has a much higher open and response rate than email or phone calls. In fact, studies have shown that text messages have a 98% open rate compared to just a 20% open rate for email. Additionally, text messages are more likely to be read quickly, with 90% of text messages being read within three minutes.
By using text messaging to generate leads, real estate companies can save time and money by targeting only those who have expressed interest in their services. Communicat-O’s platform allows you to easily collect phone numbers and other information from potential leads and automate follow-up messages to ensure no lead falls through the cracks.
Once a lead has expressed interest, the next step is to schedule an appointment. This can be a time-consuming process, with multiple phone calls or emails going back and forth to find a mutually convenient time.
By incorporating text messaging into your appointment scheduling process, you can save time and streamline the process. With Communicat-O’s platform, you can send appointment reminders and confirmations via text message, reducing the likelihood of no-shows and last-minute cancellations. Additionally, you can automate the process of rescheduling appointments if necessary, freeing up your team’s time for other tasks.
One of the most time-consuming aspects of the real estate sales process is conducting property tours. However, with text messaging, you can provide potential buyers with information about the property before they even step foot inside.
For example, you can send a text message with a link to a virtual tour or photos of the property. You can also provide information about the neighborhood or nearby amenities. By doing this, you can ensure that only serious buyers come to see the property in person, saving you time and money.
Follow-up and Closing
After the property tour, the next step is to follow up with the potential buyer and close the deal. However, this can be a delicate process, requiring careful communication to ensure the buyer feels valued and not pressured.
With text messaging, you can automate the follow-up process and keep the lines of communication open. You can send a thank-you message after the property tour and follow up with additional information or offers as needed. Additionally, you can use text messaging to keep the buyer informed throughout the closing process, reducing anxiety and increasing transparency.
