News, tips & advice from FastSMS

Letting agents can use SMS messaging to communicate with both actual and prospective tenants and this can result in higher occupancy rates and reduced costs.

When a property becomes available text your prospects list with details of the property. By texting to their mobile phones you will instantly generate interest. If you also use SMS to arrange viewing appointments you will save even more time.

With current tenants letting agents can use SMS to receive maintenance requests, arrange maintenance visits and, importantly, send reminders of visits to cut down on “no shows”. Tenants can also receive reminders before rent is due and be chased if in arrears with rent.

If you're an estate agent who isn't using SMS to increase their database of buyers and sellers, then you're an estate agent who isn't maximising their clients' phone numbers. A mobile number is something your purchasers and sellers are quite happy to share with you, and this voluntary opt-in can be invaluable when it comes to getting an edge in a competitive market. Using this information, you can create effective and affordable marketing campaigns, whether you’re alerting your clients to a change of price or promoting a particular property.
