Did you know? 

Homes By SMS - RealBird's all-inclusive text code home search service  - can be configured with your existing IDX search service, in most cases.

About Homes By SMS

Homes By SMS provides a private-labeled, all-inclusive mobile home search tool for growing your buyer side business. You can use different call-to-action messages on print flyers, sign riders, postcards, sweepstakes and online landing pages, asking home buyers to text a location to your dedicated SMS phone numbers. It's an "SMS-gate", effectively, for your IDX search service, that extends your current home search services and if used at the right place with the right call-to-action message, it can dramatically increase your lead capture rates. Upon initiating home searches via SMS, home buyers receive a link as a reply text pointing to your search results and in the meanwhile, the system captures their contact information for your CRM, right away, at the first interaction.

Case Study

As an example, see the current capabilities of the Homes By SMS implementation for Sherrie Snideman's (of Century 21 Everest Realty Group in Midvale, UT)

Her website at UtahHomeDetective.com has its own IDX search feature and we configured her Homes By SMS service to handle the following location and keyword types, directing home buyers to deep linked result pages on her own site:

  1. City – home buyers can text any cities to the Homes By SMS phone number
  2. Zip code – similar to the city search but more targeted search result is provided
  3. Neighborhood – neighborhood search is a great option for seller prospecting via postcards for example. Just ask them to text their neighborhood’s name to your Homes By SMS phone number and see what nearby homes are selling for
  4. Full address lookup – buyers can look up properties on the MLS using the full address
  5. MLS Number lookup – buyers can look up properties by their MLS number

As with the rest of the Homes By SMS implementations, the setup fee includes a free sign rider and 50 free postcards to jumpstart the marketing. The monthly fee includes the texting/SMS messaging costs for up to 100 leads each months ! It's all-inclusive and you can get started right away.
