Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 31, 2006
Cellit, LLC, the premier provider of self-service mobile marketing solutions, announced today the ability to deliver photos to Verizon phones for its real estate text messaging service, House4Cell. Cellit previously announced this capability on Cingular, Sprint and T-Mobile handsets.
"Real estate agents must now serve the Information Age homebuyer," said Cellit President, David Wachs. "They demand instant information. We feel a picture is worth a thousand words. That is why Cellit is proud to work with Verizon, the second largest cellular phone carrier in the nation, to provide its subscribers instant access to property photos. House4Cell now works with all major carriers to take the buyer inside the home, by providing photos of the interior of the property along with all of the textual information."
For a real estate agent, using House4Cell is simple. The agents simply hang House4Cell riders from the signs of their listings, informing homebuyers of the availability of instant information and photos. Prospective home buyers see these signs and text message a short, custom code to a special House4Cell phone number. Within seconds, all of the essential property information -- including price, square footage and amenities -- are immediately sent back to the buyer's phone, along with photos. Buyers can request more information via email or FAX or click a button to call the agent. With every inquiry, the real estate agent is immediately notified of the lead.
"In slower markets like this one," continued Mr. Wachs, "agents need additional listing tools to differentiate themselves from their competition. House4Cell provides that added edge to the agent while serving as a unique information tool. We are excited to continue providing innovative tools that serve our clients better."
House4Cell works on over 96% of all cell phones in the United States today. Photos and "click-to-call" are currently supported on Cingular, AT&T ("Cingular Blue"), Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon phones. House4Cell hopes to continue to add additional features to the service in the months to come.
