Did you know that on average it takes a person about 90 minutes to open an email, but only 90 seconds to open a text? In this fast-moving real estate market, it is crucial for you be able to communicate with buyers fast and easily. After hearing from our users, FlexMLS is happy to share that you will soon be able to send listings via text message from Flexmls Desktop. Click below to learn more!
When Will It Change? Soon! We will keep you posted when this goes live in our MLS. We can’t wait! You will now be able to share single or multiple listing(s) from Flexmls Desktop to Homebuyers via text message. You can access this new text message feature from the Share button on the Quick Search and Change Listing page.
Before you can start sharing listings with your clients, there is a 1 time opt-in that will need to occur. Follow the steps above in this GIF to send your contacts an opt-in request. While waiting for them to opt in, you will have the option to share the listing as an email instead.
What is your Homebuyer seeing?
Once you have sent your client the opt-in request, they will receive an email asking them to confirm that they would like to receive listings manually sent via text message. You will then receive an email notifying you of their opt-in status.
Once your client has opted in to receive text messages, they will be able to receive links to listing(s) that you share, as well as a notice that replies are unmonitored. From there, they can open the link and view the listing(s) on their phone.
