Cold texting can be a bit awkward, a bit unwanted, and maybe even intrusive at times. That being said, cold texting can also be an effective way to connect with your potential real estate clients, especially if you the homeowners or property owners who are looking for real estate agents to sell their properties.
If you have a contact list of potential real estate clients from specific areas you’re looking to operate, you’re probably planning to send them a cold text. And now you’re thinking about ways to send cold texts without being intrusive or looking spammy. We’re here to help!
In this article, we discuss how to compose a high-converting cold text and provide you with 15 cold real estate cold texting scripts.
First, consider these elements in your cold texts
While writing a cold text message in real estate, there should be a balance between being informative and not coming across as intrusive or spammy. Here are a few things you want to consider to make your cold texts effective.
Personalisation: Adding a personal touch to your text message shows that you’re not spamming your contact list. Addressing the recipient by name is a common way to personalise your message. However, you may not always know the recipient’s name in this case, especially if you’re collecting numbers from external paid sources. In that case, you can mention the locality.
Introduction and credibility: People trust messages they know where it’s coming from. Don’t forget to yourself and your role as a real estate agent. You may also mention any relevant credentials or experience in the area you’re targeting. More importantly, make sure to make it brief.
No-pressure invitation: Consider inviting your recipients to respond to you for a no-obligation chat or a free property valuation. Make it clear that there’s no pressure or expectations on them. This can add value to your text, and at the same time, assure recipients that you respect their decision and won’t corner them into a conversation they’re not ready for.
Privacy acknowledgement: Include a line respecting your recipient’s privacy and offering an easy opt-out. For example, “If you’re not interested in selling or prefer not receiving messages from us, please let me know. I’ll update my records.”
Brevity: Long texts can be overwhelming, and therefore, less likely to be read. Consider keeping the message brief and to the point.
