Texting Tips for Real Estate Professionals

If you are a real estate professional for Salt Lake City homes and other surrounding areas you well know that technical communication through texting and such is the new found way to make quick contact with friends, family and real estate clients in this fast pace world.



If you text often, then you know it's not unusual to receive a message that reads something like this: 'Don't 4get mtg 2moro @ 10 brng feb budget.' Before you get lost in a forest of 'textese' and end up typing something unprofessional, take a look at these 'textiqette' tips.

Take a second look. Texting is instantaneous and fast - that's its appeal. However, not all communications are appropriate for text message. before you send, ask yourself if your message is simple enough for a text, or deserves a conversation.

Watch your abbreviations. Texting shorthand saves time, but it can also make messages hard to understand. Not every recipient will understand your abbreviations. Consider spelling out words and using complete sentences when sending professional SMS (short message service) messages.

Keep it short. If your text is more than a line or two long and requires more than one screen's worth of writing, put on the brakes. Call or e-mail instead.

Stay professional. Texting feels more casual, so it's tempting to let grammar, spelling and syntax slide. However, sloppy text messages sent to your supervisor, clients or coworkers can also make you look unprofessional. Always read before your send.




Texting facts:

*According to the Pew Internet and American Life project, 83% of adults own cell phones, and nearly three quarters of them send and receive text messages.

*Nearly one third of adults say they prefer to be contacted via text rather than voice calls.
