Real Estate Agents Gear Up for Spring Sales
VoiceNation Live offers 24 hour live answering service.
April 28, 2011 – Spring is prime-time for the housing market and real estate agents all over are preparing for the increase in sales. Housing prices have come down tremendously, mortgage rates are low, home inventory is abundant, and first time home buyers are given the opportunity to purchase their first place through FHA loans.
Home prices are down more than 30% since their pre-recession peak in July 2006, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index. College graduates help flood the property search during the months of May and June and families with children look to move during the late spring and early summer months, not to disrupt the school year. So how will real estate agents handle the heap of house hunters?
Many real estate agents rely on VoiceNation to assist them with prospective home buyer calls. “It has now been one year that our company has been using VoiceNation to handle our incoming calls. Our call volume is relatively heavy and sometimes our callers can be challenging,” says Mike Ferris of Ferris Properties.
VoiceNation’s live answering service provides companies with a customized answering solution, such as live message relay, receptionist service, call screening, and more. Nicole Fraley with Ty Fraley Home Team in Boca Raton, FL says, “As a small business owner, it is important to have a professional image with a quick response to our phone calls. We decided to use VoiceNation so we would no longer miss those valuable calls. We have been very pleased with their service, response time and ability to develop a call script which meets our needs.”
Other real estate companies choose to use VoiceNation’s voicemail or hotline service to communicate listings in an area with prospective home buyers. The voice mail feature has the capability to forward messages to an email address as an attached mp3 or wave file so agents can access the calls at their convenience. The hotline feature is a popular option when agents prefer to prerecord detailed information about a specific home for sale. In the event a real estate company has agents widespread, the company uses Virtual PBX to ensure incoming calls are forwarded to the correct agent.
In preparation for the increased traffic and raised sales, let VoiceNation help you manage your incoming calls with peace of mind that your clients are taken care of. VoiceNation will provide you with a tailored solution to meet your high-call-volume needs.
