Quick Tips to Help You to a Winning Week!
 
Hot Tip #1
 
Save time by using ShowingCart

ShowingCart is one of the great new features of the new ShowingAssist, which went live this morning! With ShowingCart, you can schedule showings for several different listings at the same time, organize a "showing tour", and make sure they are in the best showing order for you and your clients. Then click submit once and then appointments to show all of the listings you chose are in process.

Hot Tip #2
 
 Give potential customers many different ways to find you
 
IDX search functionality gives you the ability to create a great property search on your website, which not only benefits the visitors to your site, but increases the possibility that they will utilize your services. So you need to have:
  • An IDX search on your website - look at our iHomefinder solutions for an inexpensive and effective framed search for your website
  • An IDX search for your Facebook business/brand page - look at our MRED Social IDX (MSI) solution for an inexpensive and effective IDX search for your page
  • And Coming Soon - an Agent Branded IDX app from Midwest Homes that you can give to your clients
Hot Tip #3
 
Use the natural language search functionality in connectMLSTM
 
For those of you who would prefer to recite in natural language the details for a search, rather than searching numerous individual fields to come up with results, connectMLSTM has a new option for you that is catching on fast. Part of the connectMLSTM 4.2 upgrade, "Power Search" gives you the ability to find listings, clients, agents, offices and service partners using natural language. Grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a few minutes to learn about "Power Search" on this video
