Why Alerts Are Important YMLS Text Notifications

With all the real estate agents out there, it’s important to separate yourself from the pack. Not only do you need to work to attract leads, you also need to make sure you’re communicating with those leads. This means responding in a timely fashion with helpful information that helps progress the buying process. If you don’t quickly respond to leads, there’s a chance they could look elsewhere.

With text message alerts from YMLS, you can be notified as soon as something happens so you can respond quicker. What’s really neat about these alerts is that you can customize them to fit your needs. If you want to know when a lead has viewed a listing a certain number of times or saved a listing, you can do that. This allows you to quickly respond to leads who search in your IDX property search with the information they need.
