RPR Mobile™ serves as a great resource while walking your neighborhood. With your phone or tablet in hand, the app quickly reveals each home in your farm area and relevant facts you’ll need to take your interaction from introduction to conversation to, possibly, a commitment.
Tap into your app to locate the following data (among hundreds of other data sets):
- Owner’s name
- Home’s status
- Property’s details
- Estimated values and sold price
- Distressed information
- Mortgage history
The app is also a great icebreaker. Here’s a script from a fellow REALTOR® who has had great success getting to know homeowners while canvassing neighborhoods.
“Hi, my name is Susan. I’m a Realtor® who specializes in marketing homes in this area. I have some info about how the real estate market is doing in your neighborhood and can even run a comp analysis on your home, if you’d like. I also have access to the most reliable valuation model in the nation and can give you an estimate as we speak.”
As you connect with homeowners and learn more about each home in your farm area, having a good place to put those property-centric notes is very helpful. Here’s where you’ll use the app’s note taking feature to store text, photos and audio notes for any property. These notes are accessible only by you, and can be easily included on RPR reports.
Even if the homeowner isn’t ready to sell, keep the conversation going by offering to send monthly or quarterly RPR Market Activity Reports. Perhaps the neighborhood has a few distressed properties your new client is concerned about or they’re thinking of selling when values increase. Here’s your opportunity to get in on the ground floor.
