I love new technology, especially when I think Iâ€™ve found something cool that helps people sell their homes. Today, Iâ€™m excited about a company called Access U2 Global Property Info. It launched about three years ago, and hereâ€™s the scoop. Letâ€™s say your homeâ€™s for sale with a yard sign out front. Access U2 comes by and attaches an additional sign to it called a sign rider. On the rider is a toll-free phone number with a property code number. When someone drives by your home, sees the signs and wants more information, they call the toll-free number on the sign rider. Once they call from their cell phone, they get a voice prompt asking them to enter the property code and their phone number. Instantly, theyâ€™ll receive a text message with details and a description of the property. If their cell phone supports new technology, the system will also send 10 photos and a video of the home. Your potential buyer can view all the photos of the house or take a virtual tour right from their cell phone while sitting in front of your property. To wrap things up, the service e-mails or texts the propertyâ€™s listing agent with the prospectâ€™s phone number so the agent can follow up.
No more property flyers and brochure boxes. How many times have you been frustrated wanting more information about a home, but the brochure box was empty? Thatâ€™s over. Even better, this service is eco-friendly. A real estate agent may print 100 flyers for a given listing. Using this technology on even 10 listings saves 1,000 flyers, so itâ€™s easy to see how an agent could save a tree each year.
For only $15 a month per listing, any agent can sign up to use Access U2 Global Property Info via their Web site at www.propertybyphone.com, or call 877-293-U2U2. To date, the company has over 1,000 listings.
