Sounds like you are on to something there for consumers..My company, (Prudential Towne Realty), has just started a new option for homes we list that is based on the same concept. For each listing we provide a sign rider attached with the for sale sign that is a sequence of numbers..ex: HOUSE 41411 TEXT 9136. When an agent or home buyer is driving by and wants to know specifics like price, square footage, and the number of bedrooms/baths they are automatically responded to via text with that information on the property. The listing agent then is notified that there has been a new inquiry on the property and can follow up with interested parties with the number they used to text for info for a showing or answer questions pertaining to the home in more depth..My clients have been thrilled with this new option and it has generated more showings than just having my agent number that they can contact me by.
It is great to know other agents are looking ahead at the future technology in real estate..
