Most agents have been part of an open house at some point in their career, complete with the compulsory sign in sheets. When the open house is over, you are left entering data into a spreadsheet or app, so you can follow up with potential buyers. Finding a more efficient way to accomplish this critical step, is imperative, to ensure you never miss a sale, or opportunity to connect with a potential buyer.
Enter the new app, AM Open House. Use your iPhone, iPad, or Android device to keep track of your properties, consumer and broker open houses, while allowing your customers to easily sign in and out. Eliminate sign in sheets with this app and integrate information with your existing CRM.
You can download your contacts from AM open house on your computer and upload them into your CRM program. When your open house is over, a perfectly customized email of your choosing, is automatically generated from you to your customers, allowing them to contact you with any questions, or place an offer. You can also connect to your social networks with one click.
A quick look at the AM Open House app
There are three main tabs at the bottom of the app which allow you to seamless change between operations during and after your open house: “My Properties,” “New Property,” and “Logout.” From the “my properties” tab you can quickly see property details, who has signed in, and if any feedback was left. “New Property” adds another property to your list so you are ready for your next open house.
When you are ready to begin your open house, go to your properties page, select the appropriate address, and your open house page will pull up. This is what people will actually see when they walk through the door. There are two large buttons: sign in and sign out, making it easy your customers to input data. This is also where you will end your open house so the app can automatically send an email message.
You can also view the buyers and agents who have come to your open houses. And if you have the app installed on your phone, you can simply click the phone number or email address and immediately connect with them. Since the app updates in real time, you never have to worry about information not being available to you; perfect for those days when you don’t get a chance to head back to the office.
Keeping it simple
Sharing on social media is as simple as clicking the “share open house” button. This will fill in the address, time, and date of your open house, inviting people to come and take a look. You can also send your open house information via a text message or email to any additional contacts you wish to invite personally. Again simplifying the need to copy and paste data across multiple platforms.
At the end of the day, you’ve spent more time engaging with clients and less time worrying about collecting data because everything gets loaded into your CRM. This is a great way to manage showings without the need to enter the same data into multiple programs.
