Matrix + Realist All In One Coming Soon
The leading MLS system, Matrix, is about to get even better. That’s because we’re working with CoreLogic—the provider of Matrix—to integrate your Realist tax record tool with Matrix to form an incredible super tool we’re calling Matrix + Realist All in One. The finished product, also called Matrix 360, will give you an incredible picture of the real estate market, with listing and property data together in one place.
The Meat and Potatoes
A tax search will soon be available within Matrix using the same fields as Realist but in a familiar Matrix-style search form. The Realist-style full tax display will be available right from the Matrix search results—whether you’ve run a listing search or a tax search. The complete property display will include listing data, tax/assessment data, transaction/document history, schools, flood data, and more. And the combined history will show listing activity for the property, as well as sale, mortgage, and foreclosure history from public records.
The Spice is Nice
It’s the spices that really take any dish to the next level, right? Here are a few of the “spicy” touches you can expect:
- You’ll be able to “walk the block” to see a whole neighborhood. The map displays summary tax and listing information for each parcel (where available) with links to full reports.
- The interactive map will let you zoom and pan, switch between street and satellite views, enable layers, and click on parcels to view neighboring property information—right from the full property display. Plus, comprehensive map overlays will include flood, highlighted parcel, lot dimensions, points of interest, and more.
- Easily print mailing labels right from Matrix.
The Cook Time
You know when you’re trying out a new recipe and it says, “cooking time may vary?” As cheesy as that is (pun intended), it’s a spot-on analogy to use here. Matrix + Realist All in One is in the oven and cooking to 360 degrees. Why 360 degrees? Because we’re punny, that’s why. Seriously, though, this enhanced version of Matrix is also called Matrix 360, because with the tax record and the listing data all in one view, you’ll receive a 360-degree view of the property.
Also, even though it’s used by many MLSs across the U.S., Matrix isn’t a cookie-cutter tool. We’ve spent hours and hours on customizations to make it the best possible business resource for real estate professionals across Colorado. Adding new enhancements, like Matrix 360, requires tons of taste tests along the way to make sure the result is something that we can be proud of and something that you’ll really enjoy. A few more tweaks here and there should do it, and we can’t wait to present it to you!
