When you shoot out an email to a business you expect a fast response, right? This is especially true when you’re searching for a good or service. You usually send out multiple emails and then move forward with the company that answered fastest with the best deal. The same is true for home buyers.
Today, home buyers often begin their search on the internet, which means they have almost limitless options available to them. In fact, 78% of new home shoppers visit 3+ sites prior to taking action on a real estate site. This means they have options and they use them!
But did you know that 45% of inquires on a real estate website never receive a response? This is why sellers need to create an action plan that will position their home to sell as quickly as possible, and at the best price.
To start, this means responding quickly to inquires. A staggering 45% of consumers expect an initial response from an online inquiry within 15 minutes. That’s just 15 minutes you have to make a sale before they move on to a different home.
