How often are you driving to your next appointment or just sitting down for dinner with your family when your phone rings with a showing request? You don’t want to miss a request, so you pull over or step away from the dinner table to take the call.
Using an appointment service helps you manage the showing scheduling process so you can focus on what’s important … marketing your listings! Here are four benefits to using an appointment service:
1. Save Time and Stay Organized
You’re constantly juggling multiple priorities. From prospecting to maintaining your license to handling transactions, there’s always one more thing to do. An appointment service takes care of scheduling and confirming your appointments so you don’t have to deal with the back and forth phone calls. It’s like having a personal assistant!
2. Enhanced Communications
Your sellers want consistent communications. It’s important to keep them in the loop with frequent updates regarding their listing. An appointment service schedules and confirms each appointment, communicates the details back to you, and sends communications to sellers on your behalf via email, text, and automated calls, and, in some cases, via mobile app.
3. Get More Showings
Real estate agents are always looking to get more showings. The key to more showings is great marketing, but also making it as easy as possible for agents to schedule showings on your listings. Are agents going to voicemail when they’re trying to schedule a showing? With an appointment service, your calls are always answered often times beyond standard business hours, and some even 24/7/365!
4. Increase Feedback
Getting feedback after a showing can be a difficult task. However, it’s an essential piece of the showing process and makes pricing conversations with your sellers much easier. Feedback from potential buyers helps convince sellers of the next steps (such as a price change) and can lead to a quicker sale. An appointment service will work on your behalf to get feedback for you and prepare reports to share with your sellers.
Agents know their time should be focused on prospecting, generating referrals, and marketing themselves and their listings, not scheduling and confirming showings. An appointment service is a cost-effective solution and frees up your time so you can focus on higher-payoff priorities.
