Here’s a quick tip for all you community owners and managers out there: did you know MHVillage can automatically notify potential residents when you have homes that become available? MHVillage has a “Watch This” program which can work like your own personal leads system. It sends out an automatic email to potential buyers about your homes for sale or rent, along with your sales promotions, open houses and more. Here’s how it works:
If you have ever bought or shopped on eBay, you know they have a system where you can Watch a particular item or a seller. “Watching” saves it to your account so you can keep track of it. You can also set up searches for particular types of items and be alerted when they are available. MHVillage offers home shoppers similar tools. Buyers can click the “Watch This” link on any community and save it to their account. They are then automatically notified when new home listings are added to that community. If you have buyers asking about homes in your community, you can tell them to just click the “Watch This” link on MHVillage and we’ll do the work for you – we’ll make sure they are emailed whenever you add a new listing or have an open house. And the good news it that it isn’t just for the communities, buyers can also choose to Watch Company pages on MHVillage – individual homes too!
You can even send a note those Watching your homes or communities. Just log into your account and under the Watched Listings, Communities and Dealers heading, and click “Talk to Your Fans.” With this tool you can send a customized message to those who are Watching your properties. So, if you have a special event coming up or a sales promotion, this is a great way to let people know about it.
(…by the way, all of these tools are free and are a part of the service included in your MHVillage account.)
Speaking of great tools for buyers, MHVillage also encourages shoppers to set up “Ideal Home Alerts.” Ideal Home Alerts allow a buyer to set up a particular search on MHVillage and be emailed whenever a home is listed that matches their criteria. Here’s an example: let’s say someone is looking for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in Carlisle, PA. They can use the Ideal Home Alerts to not only search for those homes, but also have MHVillage notify them whenever 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes in Carlisle are added to the site. If you would like to see how this works, just check out our Search Page for finding homes for sale or rent.
