Coming Monday

Photo management in connectMLSTM is being enhanced with some powerful features that take full advantage of modern browsers, including Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10), Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera. This new photo management capability will also work on most mobile devices.

Watch MRED Communications for all of the details when this is live coming Monday, October 14th.

-------------

Reminder:

The following field has been added to the Add/Edit module of connectMLSTM: "Are any property photos virtually staged?" (Y/N)

  • This is a required field that has been added to all property typed under the Media tab in Add a listing (except Deeded Parking)
  • If Y is indicated, added to all Agent and Client Detail reports is the verbiage "Some photos may be virtually staged"
  • If Y is indicated, added in the photo browser is the verbiage "Some photos may be virtually staged"
  • Added to the add/remove fields in all searches - "Are any photos virtually staged?"
  • This does not identify specific photos as virtually staged. It alerts agents viewing the listing that photos of that property may be virtually staged.

Take 5 and Win an iPad!

Last chance! MRED is taking part in a national MLS technology survey fielded by the WAV Group.

  • As always, our goal is to ensure we are providing you with the best services possible.
  • Your participation is critical for reliable survey results.

As added incentive, every MRED customer completing a survey will be entered into a drawing to win one of two new iPads!

Thank you in advance for your participation.

To get you started - here are the answers to the first two questions of the survey:

  • The primary multiple listing service you belong to is Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED)
