Get MLS With SMS
This is a such a great idea for consumers and realtors. How many times have you seen a For Sale sign and wanted more information but didn't call the realtors number.
From RISMedia House4Cell launches text messaging solution
House4Cell ™ is an innovative service that delivers real estate property information to prospective home buyers’ cell phones instantly via text messages. Now, House4Cell is even simpler for agents to manage, seamlessly integrating with MLS and eliminating data entry.
Real estate agents hang House4Cell riders from the signs of their listings, informing homebuyers of the availability of instant information. Prospective home buyers see these signs and simply text message a short, custom code to a special House4Cell phone number.
Within seconds, all of the essential property information—including price, square footage and amenities—are immediately sent back to the buyer's phone. The agent then immediately receives the lead's phone number for follow-up.
It's a win, win win application and a great advertising tool for realtors, home improvement, local schools and even the small contractor (lawn service, pool maintenance etc)
