Homes.com Now Available as a Syndication Channel

Have you opted in for Homes.com as a syndication channel yet? Our partnership with Homes.com ensures fair and accurate display of our members’ data and keeps the listing broker displayed prominently. Per our agreement, Homes.com will not re-syndicate, redistribute, or sub-license your listing data.

Shortly, Homes.com will begin receiving listings from the REcolorado Syndication Portal. Between now and then, you can update your new and existing listings to opt in to Homes.com as a syndication channel. Click here to learn how to do this.

*Note: Your managing broker needs to select Homes.com in Office Syndication Settings to make the syndication option available to their office.

We will notify you as soon as Homes.com has made the switch from ListHub to the REcolorado Syndication portal. Visit our Syndication help page on REcolorado.com to learn more about advertising your listings on the Internet.

Auto Recovery Feature in Matrix

The new Matrix enhancements released last week include an auto-recovery feature on listing input. This feature will prevent you from losing listing info if you are timed-out of your Matrix session (does not apply to already submitted listings).

When a new listing is entered, it will be automatically saved to allow for auto-recovery. The saving occurs if you have been idle for approximately three minutes, if you navigate to another section of Matrix, or when you move between each tab in the Input process.

After a listing has been auto-recovered, you will see a message upon login asking you to continue entering the listing or discard the listing.

For more information on the auto-recovery feature, check out our product enhancement notes.

Update Your Client Portal Header

The client portal has been updated with a more professional, user-friendly look and feel. You may have noticed in our product enhancement notes that the header for the client portal has been changed to stretch across the entire page. These headers now support a 1200×85 pixel image.

If you’ve chosen from one of the header templates in Matrix, they have already been updated to this size. However, if you’ve uploaded a custom header image yourself, you will need to resize it to take full advantage of the wider header size in the client portal.
