Merchant services support for real estate professionals continues to be in demand. Top-performing agents, Realtors, property and leasing managers stay relevant by exceeding customer expectations.
They research trends, then create or adopt the latest best practices ahead of their competition. Here are some trends in the industry that you may want to consider to better serve your clients.
Consider payment processes that can make your day-to-day work easier.
Accept Credit Cards
Maintain a competitive edge and offer a practical, convenient and added benefit to the client. Before a property is listed, think of all the ancillary support services you may offer:
- Pre-sale consultations
- For Sale By Owner (FSBO) listing
- Online and print listings of home or apartment
- Home inspection fees
- Videography using drone captured footage
- Flat fee payment vs a percentage-based commission at closing
Many of your competitors will accept a credit card as a secure, easy and faster way to collect payment for any and all of these options.
As younger generations of adults are banking on digital platforms only; they do not use paper checks and prefer to use credit and debit cards. If you want their business, be ready and able to accommodate their personal payment preferences. Our customizable merchant services support is available to all clients.
Digital Payment Options in Real Estate
Use all of the newest digital payment systems for transactions. Consider digital payments, EFTs, e-Checks and even Text to Pay. Offering these options can be the difference between getting the client and a sought-after listing.
However a client prefers to pay, be flexible and ready to accept.
Trends always change. To learn more and develop the options that are right for you and your agency, please schedule a meeting or call at your convenience.
