As a realtor, communication is the key to your success. You have to be available 24 hours a day to perspective buyers and sellers, or worry that you’ll miss a deal. Since you have to sleep and it’s also important to take time for yourself and your family, you cannot be available every hour of every day- but your app is.
With a personal realtor application, you have the ability to keep an updated list of properties in the hands of all your clients. When a new property is available, you upload it to the app and your clients receive notifications on their smart phones. This reminds them of you and they can browse your selections at any time of day.
Using your app as a networking tool, you can link clients with home inspectors, repairmen, pest control technicians, construction contractors, attorneys and mortgage lenders. You can even include a list of current mortgage rates and approximate house payments, so your clients can make intelligent house-buying decisions.
Your app is a way to advertise open houses and draw people into your world of property management. If a client can’t attend an open house, use the app to provide virtual tours of your available properties. Or, develop a feature on your app to schedule viewings, walk-throughs or signings.
Include tips on your app for sellers to make their homes more appealing, or recommending repairs and updates. Use the same tip idea to give buyers a guide of what to look for in a property.
The app features benefit both you and your clients. They have immediate access to information and you have more time to seek other listings, encourage sellers to improve their properties or market your skills to potential buyers.
