Our flat fee listing services are unique in the real estate industry with regards to how we handle buyer leads for our listed properties. We typically have modern, more tech savvy clientele compared to most traditional agents.
Our clients have high expectations, are very independent, and embrace new technology. Our services are perfect for these folks because we have the same forward thinking, the same independence, and the same high tech attitude.
The reason sellers list with us
Sellers list with us because they feel the traditional real estate model is broken. Sellers are looking for alternative ways to sell their homes and pocket more of their own money. They see little value in the “typical listing agent” who generally places the property on the Realtors MLS then sits back and waits for an offer from another agent with a buyer. They can accomplish this task more cost efficiently by using our flat fee listing service.
How buyer leads get to our sellers
In Connecticut, Flat Fee Realty is the licensed broker that works directly with sellers, and we have some of the best technology available to get buyer leads to our sellers. We have automated our emails systems so that buyers can contact our sellers quickly.
How the automated lead systems work
Buyer Email Leads: Most websites your listing will be displayed on have some sort of “buyer inquiry form” so buyers can get more information about a property. A buyer would fill out the form, with their contact info, and submit it, then the inquiry is emailed to the listing broker. Here’s where were are different! We have a sophisticated automated email routing system that scans each email and looks for the MLS id number. Once it detects the MLS id number it forwards the email to the appropriate seller. We setup each seller on our automated emails routing system right after we finish listing the property. So you’ll get your buyer leads 24/7 without fail.
Buyer Phone Leads: Most buyer phone leads are handled through our toll free number, so buyers can leave a voicemail message for our properties, which is emailed to the seller as an .mp3 file (playable on any PC or mobile device). On all websites our toll free phone number is published with our listings. When a buyer calls our toll free number they will be prompted to dial 1 to leave a message for any of our property owners.
Why does this really matter?
Simple answer… It’s all about Customer Service. It’s important for us to provide the best customer service possible and make sure all of our sellers are getting their buyer leads. Any missed opportunity might be that “one right buyer” for their home. We are proud of our top notch customer service and fast response times, and we want to do everything we can to assist our sellers in being successful selling their property. It’s why we are in business, it’s why we are so successful, and it’s why we get so many referrals from past clients. Take a peek at the many testimonials we have received from satisfied clients.
