Effective Text Messaging Scripts For Real Estate Agents
Real estate like any other business involves maintaining contact with your partners, clients, and of course prospects.
Phone calls and emails have proven to be reliable ways to get across to your potential buyers. But with the hassles of everyday life, we often can forget to read an email let alone respond to it. Just like us, recipients of our emails might never open the huge number they get and when they do, they might not respond.
Placing phone calls can seem a bit intrusive if not well done. But an excellent text message would be more to your advantage.
All forms of communications are equally important but sending text messages has a certain level of advantage. Sending a text message can create a personal relationship with your recipient. No one wants to do business with a robot, so sending texts that hit the right spot gives you extra points.
There is no doubt you would have words to say but getting them outright might be daunting sometimes. That is why experts make use of templates so you can use the most effective text messaging scripts for Real Estate Agents. They are renowned as time savers especially when you are not sure how to begin.
Here are samples of the 10 most effective Real Estate SMS scripts from experts.

- Texts to awaken dormant buyers

Your interest in [location or building] is commendable. The [pick a feature] is an amazing feature of the property. Call me so we can go see it.
- Texts as follow up
You do not have to wait for when the client comes around, you can send out a text message to follow up on an open deal or to serve as prompts.
The [pick a feature] would be great for family time together. Call me let’s get talking with the seller.
- Texts to congratulate
So you have successfully closed a deal (with a buyer, seller, or partner). It would be nice of you to send out a congratulatory message to celebrate the win.
Congratulations on getting [what the deal was]. No doubt you would enjoy being in the new area.
- Auto-response texts
You can schedule auto-response messages that would be delivered when you are not available to respond immediately. This can be adjusted to suit whatever period it is being sent out. For instance, you might want to include that you are on vacation at the moment or you are meeting with another client.
Thanks for reaching out to me. I am currently [where you are] and would return your message shortly.
Thanks for reaching out to me. I am currently [where you are]. You can drop a call to [contact someone that can help them].
How to Send Effective Text Messages using Text Messaging Scripts
Since we are sending out text messages, we would want to keep our content short. We make the text messages not just be sent but leave an impression and yield a response. You can back up the text with an email or a call that gives more details.
Remember that your name and that of your agency should be included in the text messages being sent out. Your recipients may not have your number saved on their contact list and having your name and that of your agency might ring a bell.
Sending out text messages with grammatical blunders does not give a good image of your agency so the text must be thoroughly checked before it is sent out. This would also involve not using too many abbreviations. Not everyone might understand.
Never lose the personal touch text messages carry. You can include the name or location of the client. You can also touch on previous areas in which this client has shown interest.
