Two new tabs have been added to the top navigation bar on REcolorado.com – New Home Plans and New Home Communities. Click these tabs to search new construction properties just as you would any other. You can also refine your residential search from the Search Homes or Search Properties pages to include New Home Plans and/or Communities.

If you’d like more information on how to enter new construction listings in Matrix, please read our How To document.

Have you selected Homes.com as a syndication channel?

Managing Brokers can choose which syndication channels are available to their offices. If you do not see Homes.com as an option in the Internet Display Tab in Matrix, your Managing Broker has not selected Homes.com as a channel for your office. Please contact them for further information.

Don’t fret! You can still input the listing if your Managing Broker has not made Homes.com an option for your office. Choose from the available syndication channels, submit the listing, and return later to add Homes.com if your Managing Broker has made it available.

For more information on syndication, visit our Syndication page on REcolorado.com.
