This post is in partnership with Master Lock but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Last month, I shared with you a cool new piece of real estate tech – the Master Lock Bluetooth® Lock Box, Model 5440ENT. To follow that up, I want to share more about how this product will help improve your real estate business.

According to the National Association of Realtors, there were 1,383,010 members as of July 2019.

That means that as real estate professionals, we need to be smart to stay ahead of the competition. One way to do that is by staying tech savvy and using technology to our benefit. This lock box’s technology allows you to easily monitor and manage property access directly from your smartphone.

A side benefit to using this lock box is that your client will feel safe, confident their property is secure, and trust you more. Trust is the number one commodity of successful real estate agents, as it leads to more appointments and ultimately more sales.

It also helps to organize your access data, and overall allows you to work smarter and easier. There is so much more to this lock box than a pretty face— and it is pretty.

I will explain additional ways that this tool will help you gain client trust, stay organized and overall support your real estate business below.

Easily Grant Access To Your Listing

Grant Access To Listings Easily

As I mentioned above, the competition for real estate services is steep. Being a successful real estate agent today requires us to not only wear many hats, but to be good at wearing them. Time management plays a significant role in how productive we can be. We have to be smart with our time because, if you’re like me, you’re constantly trying to find more of it!

We all know that, over the span of a sales cycle, there are going to be numerous people that will need access to your listing. While each listing is different, it can be between 20 to 50 (or more) groups going in and out of the home – this makes property access hard to keep track of.

If we need to schedule and meet each person at the listing – that time can add up. Then, factor in if there are multiple listings or even worse, out of town listings!

In order to be more productive, we need to have a system for letting people into our client’s home. It has to be safe, secure and easily accessible. Until now, the solution for that was a second lock box. Often times, that means a manual combination lock box that we would attach to the fence, gas meter, or hose. This option does solve one problem: we do not need to meet everyone at the house that needs access. But it also means many locks, many keys, many codes – which can get messy.

That’s where this smart lock box comes in. With the Portable Master Lock Bluetooth Lock Box, we can grant access to the listing with the use of an easy to use app. This means that you can easily give access to the listing right from your phone, wherever you are. And whether you grant access via Bluetooth or a temporary code, you still see in the audit history when that person opened the lock box.
