Send the Right Emails at the Right Time to Keep Your Clients Informed and Engaged

Navigating the real estate transaction landscape demands strategic and timely communication. Let’s explore the key moments that necessitate interaction with your clients, along with tips on what to focus on and examples of scripted emails.

Welcoming New Clients

Goal: Establishing a Positive Connection.

Welcoming a new client sets the tone for your entire relationship. Your welcome email should convey warmth, enthusiasm, and a commitment to guiding them through a successful real estate journey.

Example;

Welcome the client and introduce yourself

Subject Line: Thank you! We’re excited to sell your house

Notification of Home Going Under Contract

Goal: Celebrating Milestones and Providing Support

When a client’s offer is accepted, it’s cause for celebration. Acknowledge this milestone, express your excitement, and reassure them of your ongoing support throughout the contract and closing processes.

Example;

Your home is under contract

Subject Line: Your Home is Under Contract!

HI [CLIENT NAME],

Congratulations! Your home is under contract. Here is a timeline of the important events leading to your closing.

  • The Effective Start Date is [EFFECTIVE START DATE].
  • The Escrow Deposit is due to [TITLE COMPANY] by [ESCROW DUE DATE].
  • Home Inspection is due by [INSPECTION DUE DATE]. 
  • Title Commitment is due by [TITLE] from the title company. 
  • Your Home’s Appraisal is due [APPRAISAL DUE DATE].
  • The Loan Approval is due from the buyer’s lender by [LOAN APPROVAL DATE]. 
  • Anticipated closing date: [CLOSE DATE].

    Home Inspection

    You do not have to attend, but it is recommended that you do. A septic inspection, wind mitigation, and/or a wood-destroying organism (WDO) inspection may be necessary.

    Title Commitment

    The title insurance company discloses to all parties involved in the real estate transaction any defects, liens, and obligations that affect the property.

    Home Appraisal

    Your home appraisal is initiated by the lender to ensure the loan value is supported by an appraised value. You will be notified when this is scheduled.

    Loan Approval

    This signifies the buyer’s mortgage is approved for closing.

    Final Walkthrough

    The final walkthrough will be scheduled before the buyer’s closing. This usually occurs right before the buyer’s signing. Don’t forget to turn all utilities on for this walkthrough.

    Closing

    The above must be completed on time to ensure we close on time. You will be contacted soon by the closing agent at [TITLE CO NAME]. Please work with them on any information they might need to get you to the closing table on time.

    A copy of your executed contract is available for you on ListedKit.com.

    As always, give me a call at [YOUR PHONE NUMBER] or shoot me an email if you need anything or have any questions. 

    Best, 

    [YOUR NAME]
