MLS Listing Tips for Successful Showings
RAM MLS members have access to a variety of tools to manage showings and lockboxes. Here are a few listings tips and advice on using HomeSnap Pro and Sentrilock that can help on your next listing.
A-SHOWING (12 different choices). Use the SHOWING Features to identify specific instructions like 48-Hour Notice Required, Appointment Only, or if you just need to call the Office first.
Agent Remarks – This is an additional place to mention things like pets, COVID requirements, certain time restrictions, or to leave a specific phone number to text or call for a showing appointment. If you are requiring that the Buyer and their Buyer Agent use HomeSnap for the showing appointment you would mention this in the Agent Remarks.
ZJ – OCCUPANCY (Can choose Owner, Tenant, or Vacant) – This is not a Showing Field, but it will let the Buyer’s Agent know if they are showing a vacant or occupied home.
Homesnap Showings – The Homesnap application is free to RAM REALTORS. It is our showing management platform you can use on any applicable listing for sale in Paragon. Sellers will appreciate getting quality feedback for their showings and allows buyers’ agents to get instant bookings when they schedule a time for the showing.
Check out the full guide to Homesnap Showings to ensure your best-ever showing management experience. If you aren’t yet using Showings, claim it for free, and prepare for your best-ever showing management experience.
Is your Sentrilock enabled? If you plan on assigning a Sentrilock Lockbox to the property for showings or attending a showing where you need to open a lockbox, you will want to make sure your Sentrilock account is Active. You can do this by opening your Sentrilock app and running the daily update. If it is successful, you will be able to open Lockboxes at showings.
If you get a message that your Sentrilock is Inactive you will want to contact the RAM office during business hours and get Activated again. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to be enabled in Sentrilock.
