“In union, there is strength.” – Aesop

The same is true for your technology. The MoxiCloud contains some pretty fantastic and adaptable products, but it also partners with more than 50 other industry-leading integrated technologies. Like peanut butter and jelly, these partners make the MoxiCloud suite of products even better.

MoxiWorks and Spacio - your open house technology duo

Spacio

You probably know Spacio as the sleekest and easiest way to capture leads at an open house – but you can use this form for digital content as well! The lead collection link lets interested parties sign-up to get more info on a listing, triggering your MoxiPresent presentation to be sent to them. Build out a virtual open house using MoxiPresent, invite people to access it through the Spacio link and you’ve effectively created an on-demand open house.

MoveEasy

MoveEasy is a comprehensive agent branded post-transaction concierge service. Agents can help their clients with all their pre and post moving tasks through a combination of online, human and Alexa automated concierge while staying top of mind. Your clients just closed, and you’d normally check-in with a physical pop-by or help them pack boxes, but it just isn’t safe to visit right now. Instead, offer them the benefit of the MoveEasy concierge service.


HomeActions

Home Actions

HomeActions provides tailored print and email newsletters for your sphere. Connecting your MoxiEngage contact list allows HomeActions to research and develop content around your sphere’s actual consumer analytics (think search histories, consumer profiles, etc). Bonus tip – follow HomeActions on Twitter for daily real estate news clippings! During this time, it’s more important than ever to be keeping in touch with your sphere of influence. If you haven’t already taken the time to build out your content plans for your list of contacts, HomeActions can help you create relevant materials.


REveo

REveo

In most areas you can no longer give tours in person, but REveo is a great tool that helps you create virtual showings so you can continue moving your business forward in a safe way. REveo makes it easy for you to connect buyers virtually to showings in a single click with no apps or additional technology required for buyers. You can share virtual showings with buyers from any screen – live or on-demand. The broadcast is branded with your brokerage and agent information keeping you front-and-center when sharing videos.


SocialBoost

SocialBoost (previously iTourMedia) gives you the ability to record and share your open house videos to Facebook business pages. The content will automatically play and will also auto-boost to your selected audiences, making it easier than ever before to use social media advertising. Simplifying techy processes is a great way collaborative technology will help you succeed as business interactions are moved to the digital space.


 

The entire tribe of humanity is faced with recognizing and adapting to this global pandemic. However, those of us in more populated cities may be having to change in different ways than those of us in rural communities. Real estate best practices are much like how we respond to pandemics — a little different in different communities. Each brokerage and each agent needs a way to communicate with their sphere and efficiently process transactions, but the tech-stack we use varies. That’s why, we at MoxiWorks, devote our innovation to an open-platofrm allowing other adaptable visionaries to partner and collaborate with our tech to create the best solution for each and every brokerage and agent.

In times like this, it is more important than ever to find ways to collaborate and stay motivated to keep your business moving. What tools are you using to help streamline your remote business? What new ways are you adapting and collaborating? We will all get through this, virtually, together.

10 Must-Read Ideas for Your Next Open House

By Tiana Baur, Content Marketing Manager

open houseIt’s open house season! It’s exciting and traumatizing all at once. So much to do, so many shoe covers to put on. It also means it’s time to think outside the box when drawing people in and forcing them to stay. And by forcing we don’t mean tying them to the chairs, that would be illegal. We mean enticing them to stay so well they’ll want to buy the home and stay forever.

Here are 10 wacky, awesome ideas for your next open house:

 

One. Speaking of shoe covers… I think we’re all tired of bending over to pick them up. Think about not keeping them in a little basket on the floor and instead putting them in a nice display on a table. Sore backs everywhere will thank you.

You know what would be even better? Custom shoe covers. We did a quick search and yes, it’s possible to get some booties with your logo and everything. It’s not groundbreaking, but hey, everything makes a difference.

 

Two. While we’re on the topic, get some cookies with your logo and maybe even your phone number on it! It’ll look so good, open house guests will never want to eat ‘em. Get them individually wrapped so everyone can easily take one with them and have your number on hand. We recommend this place. We’ve used them before and they’re delicious. In fact, we’re kind of obsessed! Your open house guests will be too.

 

Three. Fill the bath (if there is one) with bubble bath, some rose petals, and champagne flutes filled on the side. I don’t care who you are or what kind of house you’re looking at, everyone loves to kick back and relax. Help them imagine themselves in the home by staging some relaxing spots.

 

Four. If it has a beautiful garden, pick a few flowers and put them in the entryway and kitchen. Put a cute little sign showing that they’re from their future garden. It’s all about the vibes, people!

 

Five. Buy some poo-pourri. Yes, you read that right. It’s not very expensive and it could save your open house from a nightmare situation. An open house is a great time, especially when it’s packed with people constantly coming and going. It turns into a bad time when someone decides to go, and the paint starts peeling off the walls. Avoid at all costs. Invest in this.

 

Six. Buy a cake. Buy a huge, delicious cake, with the listing photo as the top. It’s possible, pretty much every bakery can put an image on one. It’ll make your guests feel like they’re already celebrating (even though you’re about to get them into a bidding war and get over the asking price for your clients – ayoo!)

 

Seven. I’m going to make this one short and sweet. If it’s a family home with a backyard, buy a bubble maker and stick it back there. Kids love that stuff. Adults do too, but we’re not allowed to admit it.

 

Eight. Pay an ice cream truck to stop by during the open house’s hours. It will draw major attention and have people running from all directions. Alternatively, a food truck works great too! There will be more options if you go that route, but it just depends who your target audience is.

 

Nine. Have everyone enter their names into a raffle that is drawn the following week. Don’t make the raffle lame, though. We’re talking a very, very nice bottle of wine, a $100 Amazon gift card, maybe even an iWatch! It’ll keep you top of mind for the following days, which means the house you’re selling will be too.

 

Ten. Last but not least, if you’re looking to really show your guests who the real estate boss it, get a valet. Obviously if there’s plentiful parking, it’s not an issue, but there are lots of neighborhoods and situations where parking can be rough. Simply hire a valet to wow them, but also make it easier to get to the house itself.

 

There you have it. We hope you try at least one of these at your next open house! And that this selling season is bountiful for your real estate business. Just don’t forget the poo-pourri.

Why You Should Use Open House Presentations Every. Single. Time.

Open house presentations are the new standard. Gone are the days when you could put out a plate of cookies, sit back, and reap the benefits. Markets are crazier than ever and the competition couldn’t be vaster. Stepping up your open house game will ensure success and help beat out the competition.

Here’s why you need to use open house presentations moving forward:

 

Better Chances of Converting

Open house presentations allow you to have a better chance of converting a buyer for your listing. How come? With automated marketing sending out your presentations to open house guests, you’re reminding them of the house they saw, and why they loved it.

Since home buying is the largest and most emotional purchase in a client’s lifetime, chances are they’re going to need constant cues and reassurance of why they should take the leap. Open house presentations remind them it’s there and allows them to fall in love with the home over and over again.

Check this page out for open house presentation samples so you can get an idea of what agents are providing to potential buyers.

Lead Generation

There’s a new way to “Open House” and it involves killer lead generation, tying into buyer conversion. Spacio is a lead catcher tool that allows agents to host paperless open houses and turns them into powerful sales opportunities. They do this with a few simple strategies.

Spacio, a Moxi Cloud integrated tool for paperless open houses.

Simple and Paperless Lead Capture: A modern and inviting sign-in form collects visitor information and leaves them with an unforgettable first impression. Spacio verifies the accuracy of visitors’ contact information so agents can focus their efforts on the highest quality leads.

Millennials

If those aren’t good enough reasons to convince you why open house presentations are a must, then how about this. Millennials, who are now the largest generation buying homes, are a different animal. In fact, millennials represented 45% of all purchase loans in 2016.

They’re not the only ones that expect more from real estate agents these days either. With articles like this coming out all the time, it’s getting more and more vital for agents to have an indisputable value proposition. Older, tech savvy generations expect more now as well, and you can make your worth obvious with your expert open house. But still, don’t forget the cookies.
