Just had a quick note in from Greg at Mobile Visions in New Jersey, to say they’ve just launched their brand new service ‘Cell A House’. Once you’ve finished reading this and checking out the Cell A House site, have a look at this blog entry for a rant and ensuing discussions back in December about the subject of estate agents and mobile technology.
Home buyers who stop to look at a house for sale can send a text message to a 5 digit short code, and receive detailed information and pictures instantly to their mobile phone. Simultaneously, the selling agent is sent and email or text message with the phone number of the potential buyer.
Real estate agents simply log in at the Cell a House website to enter information about their homes for sale, and upload pictures. The service is based on a monthly subscription fee depending on the number of homes to be listed. Cell a House also includes free eye-catching lawn signs containing the home code to send the text message to.
