Realtors are quite familiar with the endless spate of phone calls that come in for certain
rental properties, many of which are just your average, ordinary ‘tire kicking’ callers. These calls can take a tremendous amount of time out of your day. After all, you have to explain the rental property and then try to learn something about these prospects. In the end, a majority of these callers won’t call back or want to see the property.
Why go through all of that every time? Wouldn’t it be great to have a simpler, better process of weeding out those so-called tire kickers? Well, now there is and it is as easy as setting up a separate hotline for these rental properties. Whether you are a private homeowner looking to rent out your vacation property for a season or you’re a professional real estate agent who is looking to save some time, a hotline is the answer you’ve been waiting for.
Have Interested Renters Call the Hotline
When you place an ad for that rental property, leave your iTeleCenter toll-free number and
extension number for them to call. With this extension, you can record a detailed message explaining the property and the qualifications that the tenants must meet in order to apply and this will be what your callers hear. This great hotline system roots out all of the peripheral callers who would normally occupy too many hours of your day and leave you frustrated.
Homeowners who accept these calls to their home number ultimately rush to accept potential renters when they realize how tedious the process can be. Instead, using
iTeleCenter hotline extensions keeps you from having to sift through the endless calls. Interested prospects will listen to the entire message. With your detailed recording, they will understand everything about the property that they would need in order to decide whether they want to view it. When they are, then they will be directed to leave their
contact information for you or you can have connect directly to you at that point.
The Toll-Free Number Filters Out the Right Callers
When prospective tenants call ads, they often are simply curious. These callers are much more likely to call home numbers than toll-free numbers. A toll-free number has a more professional appearance and your rental property will be represented in a much more dynamic manner by simply adding that toll-free number to the ad.
Some of the most successful real estate gurus in the world use hotlines for their prized
listing. The more valuable or exclusive the listing, the more likely you will be to have curious tire kickers calling up to find out more about it. These window shoppers are not malicious by any stretch of the imagination; they are curious, but nothing more. Let them listen to the details about the property and if they are genuinely interested at that point, then they will leave their contact information and you can call them at your convenience.
It can be tempting to grab the phone when it rings for the first time. After all, you don’t want a bona-fide tenant slipping through your grasp, but they won’t. People who are
seriously interested in renting your property will be more than happy to listen to all of the details and then leave their information. If you do have call forwarding enabled, you will most likely be connected to truly interested renters.
