Prospective home buyers out shopping for homes can receive property information via text messaging on their cell phones through a new service called CellSigns.
The service offers buyers a property description, the asking price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and the real estate agent’s contact information. Buyers can reply to the initial text message with requests to schedule a showing, get more info, or speak to the agent directly.
Agents and brokers can use the service to automate, manage and nurture the buyer/broker relationship.
CellSigns is powered by mobile marketing company QUASI, based in Exton, Pa.
The service delivers information via various wireless carriers including Cingular, Sprint, Nextel and T-Mobile. It will be available through Verizon in October.
