On Today’s Electric Avenue Show – Greg Vincent shares an insight into InspectRealEstate.com.au – A Brilliant New Time-Saving Tool For The Real Estate Industry.
When you think about the hours and hours of time that this application can save an agency PLUS the simplicity of the process for the end user PLUS the fact that the Landlords, Prospective Tenants, Property Managers & the Principal are all kept well-informed about the Online Booking Process then without a doubt this is one of the best (if not the best) Time-Saving Tool that I have seen developed for the real estate industry in my 20+ year real estate career…and I’ve seen a lot of different things come and go.
After catching up with the owner of InspectRealEstate.com.authe other day, Andrew Reece, I was really impressed by the depth of thought and development that has gone into making the system so user friendly.
I personally tried a dummy run of booking an inspection through a rental property featured on realestate.com.au.
I sent through the Inspection Request within 2 minutes I had received an automated response from the agent both via email & via SMS with a link to a Register An Inspection Time form (as seen below).
I booked an inspection time and almost immediately received a confirmation email & SMS. Very impressive!
Within the email I could add the Inspection to my Calender, View the property on a Map, Complete an Application Form, Submit an Application for the property OR I could also Cancel/Change the Inspection time.
So, I cancelled the inspection and automatically received a confirmation email about the Cancellation from the agent (all this happened automatically again within seconds/minutes).
The system is very intuitive and even has the capability to measure how long it takes to get from property to property so that if a prospective tenant books to see a property in Balmain and then wants to inspect a different property in Drummoyne it will calculate the approx. travel time and won’t allow the user to book-in time slots that are physically impossible (unless you’ve hired a helicopter).
It’s designed to try to eliminate those frustrating ‘No Shows’ or ‘Late Arrivals’ as much as possible.
If the Property Manager/Agent is running late, the mobile version allows for a simple I’m running late SMS to be sent to all of the people registered for that particular timeslot.
Plus, if a Tenancy Application has been accepted by the Landlord all other interested parties can be notified that the property has been rented out.
Also, as part of the system you can have a Register Button inserted onto your website PLUS it was good to see that the Major Portal thehomepage.com.au has lead the way yet again by integrating with the InspectRealEstate.com.au system and displaying a direct link to the ‘Register an Inspection Time’ page for the agents using the system.
Here’s what one agent had to say
“I have this week returned from vacation and I wanted to write to you to tell you how well everything has been working. First of all, our staff LOVE inspectrealestate.com.au. They tell me phone calls and emails are down 90% to 95% – amazing. Open houses are down slightly but the quality of the prospective tenant turning up to these opens is substantially better, in fact, on average we are only having to open a property once before we obtain a good quality application – fantastic. Overall, it has been the single best innovation we have introduced to our property management department in 20 years – well done!” ~ Michael O’Sullivan
Like I said earlier, there has been a lot of thought go into the creation of this online inspection scheduling product.
Congratulations to Andrew Reece and his team for designing such a helpful product for our industry.
