20 Real Estate Texts That Get Results

20 Real Estate Texts That Get Results

Good communication with clients is vital in the competitive real estate world, but it’s simply a matter of using technology effectively. The text message remains a staple in the business communication toolbox, and it’s an especially good fit for real estate agents. That’s why we’ve created the below templates to help you.

Why use text messages?

The public has become accustomed to seamless communication from businesses wherever they go. If you can’t provide it, they may be inclined to choose a competitor that does. Text messages are a quick and cost-effective way to follow up with new leads, arrange appointments and more, so take advantage.

Research from GMSA found that 67% of respondents preferred to receive communications from a business regarding appointment scheduling via text message rather than email or calls. And most text messages do get opened, with an open rate of 98% for text messages compared to around 20% for email, according to Mobile Monkey. Millennials tend to read their messages quickly, almost always have their phones on them, and they’re currently buying their first homes.

With these text message templates, your real estate business will be better prepared to streamline and automate client communications while putting forward an image of organized professionalism, so be sure to make use of them.
