Sellers can now reach potential buyers via free text message 24/7
CHICAGO, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Real estate agents and homeowners have a free marketing tool at their disposal to reach any home shopper in the U.S. with a text enabled mobile phone. Looks To Leads (www.lookstoleads.com) is a new web app that lets sellers automatically respond to home buyer inquiries via text message, 24 hours a day, at no charge.
Home buyers can receive text messages with more information about a real estate listing by visiting www.house2cell.com and entering their mobile phone number, along with a unique property ID number. Looks To Leads text messages include the property address & price, the seller's contact information, and a link to access additional data about the listing online. The seller also receives an immediate e-mail notification with the caller's mobile phone number whenever a real estate inquiry is made, so they can follow up on potential home buyer leads with a text or phone call. Yard signs and brochure boxes in front of properties for sale are popular options to alert buyers that more information is available using Looks To Leads.
"According to a recent study by Google and the National Association of Realtors, 89% of home shoppers use a mobile search engine to find real estate," explains Dorsey West, founder of Looks To Leads. "Looks To Leads was designed to bridge the gap between traditional real estate marketing such as yard signs and online house hunting using mobile devices, by including a link to the property web page with each text message that buyers receive."
Realtors and homeowners can use Looks To Leads free of charge by registering for an account at www.lookstoleads.com. Property information is immediately available to buyers via text message when the listing data is entered by the seller. Home buyers are responsible for any messaging charges from their wireless carrier to receive text messages from Looks To Leads.
