Selling Your Home? There's Only One Good Way to Reach Younger Buyers Today -- Texting

Selling Your Home? There's Only One Good Way to Reach Younger Buyers Today -- By Texting.

This revelation about the necessity of texting occurred to me a number of years ago when I was frustrated with trying to reach my daughter the old school way -- phone, email, etc. The only method that worked consistently was texting.  

So I embraced texting in my personal life and have extended that communications method to my listings and our buyers here in the Southwestern Illinois cities of Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Collinsville and Troy.

I welcome both sellers and buyers to text me at 618-791-8007 when they have questions about selling their property or buying a new home. And, of course, they're still welcome to call, email or connect with me on Facebook. My motto is -- whatever is easiest for you is just fine with me.

Communication is the single most important thing we can do to help our clients. No one likes to feel like they are kept in the dark or are out of control. Being in close communication -- by whatever method -- solves that issue.

We love our texting response system. It delivers instant information on our listings to potential buyers. Here are a few examples of our texting systems for some of the properties that we currently have listed:

TEXT 129496 to 79564 and you'll get a text reply with details on a 3,400+ square-foot home on beautiful Dunlap Lake in Edwardsville, IL. The text you receive about 435 W. Lake Dr. will include the basic details on the home such as the price and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms and a link to my phone number. The text also provides a link to the address-specific website for the home which offers pictures and even more details. One click and an interested buyer is in touch with me immediately.

TEXT 129847 to 79564 for information on 5231 State Route 159 in Edwardsville, IL.

TEXT 129353 to 79564 for details on 5 Cedar Mill in Troy, IL.

TEXT 129572 to 79564 for everything you need to know about 402 Blue Bird in Troy, IL.

Why do I love to text?  It's quick, it's definite (no messy misunderstood conversations), and it makes some people feel more comfortable to communicate in a way that they choose.

So, if you're thinking about selling your home in Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Collinsville, Troy or many of the other cities, towns and villages across St. Louis' Illinois suburbs, just text me to start the conversation. I'll show you how we can put your property in front of more buyers more quickly.

And, if you're buying or just thinking about buying, text me with the type of place you're looking for and we'll send matches to a website that you can browse at your convenience.
