2018 follow-up TXT scripts - Get 'em while they're hot!!

New, free online follow-up text message scripts and templates for agents working the field in 2018. Are you looking for something to say? Then here's your source (at least one of them). =)

 

 

FIRST OFF: TXT messaging is a sensitive marketing channel to leverage. Do not spam folks - especially people you don't know (that's just creepy). However, there is a role for TXT messaging people that you've had light communication with. These leads may be somewhere between "neighbor you've recently met" and "friend of a friend asking their network for tips on the market."

 

That said, here are some great text message followup templates for you to use in your 2018 campaigns. You'll see a lot of reference to a market report, something we can't recommend highly enough. Generate yours at offrs.com if you don't yet know where to customize a home-welcome kit or CMA / marketing report. Be sure to share!

 

"Just wanted to follow up on the area report we talked about. There's a lot to the market right now, but I can help."

 

"Hey there... just following up on the neighborhood report. What’d you think? Are you free tomorrow to discuss?"

 

"So what did you think of the neighborhood report? A lot of interesting stuff in there, right? Are you available tomorrow to talk in person?"

 

"Now that you've had a chance to review it, what did you think of the report?"

 

"Have you had a chance to review the report we talked about? Obviously, there's a lot of factors to navigating the market. Let’s talk."

 

"Hey, have you had a chance to review the market report I sent you? If not, no worries. We can go over it in person if you're free tomorrow."

 

"The neighborhood report I sent you has a lot of details in it. Do you want to get together and discuss what it means for your home value?"

 

"Hey there. I'd like to get together and discuss the area report I gave you (what it means for your home's market value) etc. Wanna grab coffee?"

 

"Wanted to follow up on the neighborhood report I sent out. You free tomorrow to go over it together?"

 

"Hope you're doing great today! What did you think of the neighborhood report...? You available today to discuss?"

 

"Hope the report was helpful! If you're free next week, let's meet up and go into more detail about the market. Wed work for you?"
