Texting & Real Estate

Technology can be an amazing resource, we can find information at our fingertips, stay connected with friends and loved ones and communicate with others on the go. In the Real Estate and Property Management business technology can be a very powerful tool, we are able to use iPads to show listing information and present CMA’s or we can use cell phones for contacting tenants on the road (or safely parked). In addition to making calls and getting access to the internet from our mobile devices, texting has become an easy and efficient way to communicate with tenants and colleagues.

A recent article from, Renting My House, discusses when it is and when it is not appropriate to text your tenants. It is important to remember that texting IS NOT written notice, it is a great way to send reminders, confirm appointments or send simple messages, but when issuing legal notices, it is not a substitute. It is also important to remember that texting is not for everyone, make sure to ask if texting is okay with your tenant or client before sending your message. Read on for more tips and guidelines for texting your tenants.
