Blackadders launch interactive For Sale boards

Our clients now have the opportunity to add a black and white square bar code to their property For Sale board. By scanning the QR (quick response) code via their smart phone or iPhone,  a prospective property buyer will have instant access to the property’s details including price; images; floor plans; the full schedule and the Home Report.

Lindsay Darroch, head of property said “We are keen to allow our clients to benefit from technological advances and in these uncertain times we believe vendors need an agent who uses innovation and technology to add value to the their transaction. With more and more people owning an iPhone or smart phone we saw an opportunity to increase the number of people who viewed our properties for sale.  Think about this scenario:- a potential buyer is passing a property we are selling and is very  interested – at the moment they would have to find a pen, take a note of the property details, our telephone number and find the property online when they returned home – now the property details can be viewed instantly by any interested passer-by simply by scanning the code and they could arrange an appointment to view that property on the spot.”

If you do not have an inbuilt QR reader on your mobile device you can download one for free from the iTunes store or from the Android Market Place for smart phones using Google’s operating system.
