EZ Texting’s straightforward contacts management system helps you keep track of comms and ensure your opt-in list is up-to-date.

Schedule In-Person & Virtual Tours
Show off your properties either via virtual tours or bringing prospects in for a walk-through or open house. Property tours are a necessary step for selling a unit so be sure to automate the process to keep things running smoothly via text scheduling.
Pro Tip: Add MMS imagery or video to boost even more interest in scheduling tours. A well-staged property not only sells faster — but can increase the value significantly. According to the National Association of Realtors, 40% of agents cite staging as having an effect on a lead.
Streamline the Application Process
Keep the momentum going after successful tours, marketing promotions, and move-in specials by helping guide prospects from initial interest to application process. Timely follow-up is crucial to selling your units.
Don’t delay and inspire prompt action by streamlining the application process with a trackable link.
