MRED'S Tuesday Tip Sheet

Quick Tips to Help You to a Winning Week!

Hot Tip #1 - Did you know you can reposition where your listings appear on maps in connectMLS™?  Anybody who can edit listings in connectMLS™ has the ability to reposition their own listings very easily.  Click on the My Listings/Transactions link on the My MLS page or the My Listings/Transactions icon in the upper right hand corner of any page in connectMLS™.  Choose a listing and click on the Edit pencil (towards the right hand side of the page).  Select "Reposition on Map" and follow the simple instructions that appear (hover on red pin on map, right click, drag to appropriate location, etc.).  It's that easy!
Hot Tip #2 -  Don't forget about the Agent Owned/Interest field.  If the listing broker or agent has an ownership interest in the property being listed or if the owner of the property is a licensed real estate broker or agent, you must mark the Agent Owned/Interest field Y (for yes).  Side note - it is NOT required to put that information in the remarks field.
Hot Tip #3 - If your listing is active in connectMLS™, you must allow showings.  If the property cannot be shown, you must change the status to temporarily off the market until you can show it.  Inside information - "temporarily off the market" is being changed to "temporarily no showings" in connectMLS™; we'll let you know when that change has occurred.
Hot Tip #4 - Please put the correct acreage in the acreage field.  Agents search using the acreage field and you are doing your clients a disservice by not including the correct acreage in that field, as well as all of the other fields in the system.  The more information you include in your listings, and the more accurate the information, the more effective you are marketing the property.
