Mobile Options to Help Agents Work on the Go https://www.newjerseymls.com/2019/07/mobile-options-to-help-agents-work-on-the-go/ Tue, 30 Jul 2019 17:41:34 +0000 http://www.newjerseymls.com/?p=8227 The NJMLS provides several mobile options, each designed for “on the go” solutions:

  • NJMLS Mobile View:  Designed to work on your mobile device, the NJMLS Mobile View allows members to work within the system in real time. There is no app required to use the Mobile View; login to XL Paragon on your mobile device and you will be prompted to choose this option. The work you do in the Mobile View will update automatically in XL Paragon. Currently, features available in this view include Quick Search (by MLS #, Address, Name), View Hotsheets and Watch List Alerts, Search Tools (Near Me, Property, Hotsheets, Tour/Open House, Cloud CMA, Roster), Listing Maintenance (view your listings, make price changes, extend expiration dates, add Tour/Open House dates), view Reports, get Alerts, access Contacts, Communication Logs, and more.
  • NJMLS App:  Agents can easily access listing information on the go, search for listings based on geographic location, MLS #, Address, City or Zip Code. Members may also view tax data, Realtor Tours, Showing Instructions, and more. The consumer version of the NJMLS app provides the public view of NJMLS listings and can be used to generate leads back to agents. Members with IDX service can share a branded version of the app with clients.
  • Homesnap PRO:  This platform provides information on any home, whether or not it is for sale, such as value, last list date and price, listing history, lot boundaries, etc., and combines that with MLS listing data. The NJMLS provides the Homesnap Pro App as a free, value-added service to our members. It provides NJMLS listing and property information to agents on the go, allowing you to research homes, contact other agents, and communicate with clients. Agents can also share the app and work in collaboration with their existing clients, as well as receive leads from consumers searching the public version.

Changes to Showing Instructions https://www.newjerseymls.com/2019/06/changes-to-showing-instructions/ Tue, 25 Jun 2019 17:58:47 +0000 http://www.newjerseymls.com/?p=7962 There’s nothing more frustrating than finding the perfect property to show to your customer and then not having clear or accurate showing instructions on the listing. Conversely, when a showing agent doesn’t follow the instructions it can be frustrating for everyone. To help make showing instructions more standardized and easier to follow, we recently made a few changes:

1. There is a new, required field with a menu of choices:

  • Use Showing Time
  • Text Listing Agent for Confirmed Appointment
  • Call Listing Agent for Confirmed Appointment
  • Call Listing Office for Confirmed Appointment
  • Call Owner for Confirmed Appointment
  • Call Tenant for Confirmed Appointment
  • Key in Office
  • Go Direct/NJMLS KeyBox Installed
  • Other/See Showing Instructions

2. The text field Showing Instructions/Agent Remarks has be broken into two text fields:

  • Showing Instructions:  to be used for additional details on showings
  • Agent Remarks:  to be used for links or additional confidential information or disclosures to be shared with other agents

The NJMLS: We Give You More Than Just Listing Maintenance https://www.newjerseymls.com/2019/05/the-njmls-we-give-you-more-than-just-listing-maintenance/ Wed, 01 May 2019 17:34:39 +0000 http://www.newjerseymls.com/?p=7436 The NJMLS continues to offer our members many system-integrated products that are provided at no extra charge as part of the membership fee (which has remained the same since 2007). We strive to always be on the lookout for products and services that help streamline your workflow:

Cloud CMA:  Cloud CMA is an option we are providing to create a customized CMA Report; it also allows users to create Buyer’s Tour Reports, Property Detail Reports, and Property Flyers.

ZipForm Start Contract Integration:  We offer two integrations in zipForm® Plus. First, a quick and simple way to write a Contract of Sale, using the MLS-PUSH feature that pushes data directly from a listing in XL Paragon to a zipForm® transaction. You also have the convenience of being automatically logged in when you go from our XL Paragon system to the zipForm® Plus site. New integration features continue to streamline members’ workloads. Second, a new integration that allows you to send your Listing Agreement, Change of Status Form, or Withdrawal Form PDF directly into a new or existing zipForm® Plus transaction folder for e-signing.

ShowingTime Appointment Scheduling Service:  Save time, reduce calls, and generate showings by enabling ShowingTime on your listings. ShowingTime provides a simpler way to schedule and manage showings, request feedback from showing agents, create listing activity reports, schedule buyer’s tours, and send notifications to agents who have shown your listings.

Realist:  This property database allows users to search for properties and listings, flood maps, assessor maps, and zoning maps. You can also evaluate market conditions and trends, identify comparable properties, search for distressed properties, and more. Tax data is available for all 21 counties in New Jersey and nine counties in New York.

Supra MLS Integration:  Members whose keys have been assigned by the NJMLS are able to access the Supra MLS integration, found on the Full Reports of their listings. Simply use the icons provided to quickly assign a keybox to a listing, access a showing report to see which agents have opened the keybox, and unassign a keybox from a listing when the property is off-market.

Homesnap Pro:  This popular app and its consumer companion, Homesnap, is designed so agents can work in collaboration with their clients from their mobile devices.

User Preferences https://www.newjerseymls.com/2018/08/user-preferences/ Mon, 13 Aug 2018 14:40:27 +0000 http://www.newjerseymls.com/?p=5635 There are some simple ways on our member site, XL Paragon, to engage consumer attention from our public site, njmls.com:  Take some time to complete a few pieces of information in the User Preferences section of the Toolkit.  It will only take a few minutes and may help garner some leads.  Here are some of the highlights you may want to try, outlined according to the section in which you’ll find them in User Preferences:

Section 2
Load/Change Your Agent Photo:  If you’re only going to do one thing, upload a photo into the system.  Not only will this appear when you email a customer report to someone from XL Paragon, it will also filter over to njmls.com so that consumers will know who you are.  It’s a very visual world, and when people know who they’re going to meet, for example before they’re going to an appointment, it may work in your favor.

Section 5
Accreditations:  If you took the time to get certified and trained in a special area of real estate, for example, Military Relocation, Training in Green Building Features, At Home with Diversity, Senior Residential Specialist, or the many other specialties that are available to Realtors, then let consumers know that if they need someone with your expertise, you’re available.  Choose these in this section by checking the boxes that apply; they will filter to the public site and display on your Agent Page.

Languages Spoken:  If you speak another language (or up to five) you may choose them here.  They will display on the public site and are a searchable option for consumers looking for someone who speaks their language.

Section 8
Biography and Accomplishments:  We have two sections; one where you can create a biography and another to list your accomplishments.  Both of these display on njmls.com as your Agent Page.

Towns Serviced:  You may choose up to 10 towns where you specialize.  These will filter to the public site, and if a consumer is searching for an agent in one of those towns, your profile will display as part of their search results.

Periodically we offer a webinar to review the features in User Preferences.  If you’re interested,   please  call Michele Cucci at 201-387-1150, ext. 527 to put your name on a list for an upcoming session.
