Know the Matrix Property Types

Selecting the correct type for your listing is the first step to ensuring. Remember, detached and attached homes are different and are not interchangeable.

Complete A Listing Input Form During Your Listing Appointment
Want to get one step ahead of getting that new listing entered in the MLS? Of course, you do. Before your next listing appointment, confirm the property type so you can take a print out of the correct listing input form. We have PDF forms available for all the property types on the Resource Center (available from the REcolorado Training & Information section of your CONNECT dashboard) so you can go through each field/option together with your client. Then, use the form to quickly enter the listing yourself or submit it for entry.
Pretend Every Field is Required
You want your client’s listing to be easily found in the MLS, so it can sell in the least amount of time possible. Increase your chances of this by filling in information for every field/option you can, not just the ones marked with an asterisk (*).
Use the Square Footage Companion
Calculating accurate square footage can be tricky even for long-time agents. We recommend using the Square Footage Companion to help you confirm which square footage fields to use for your property’s style and type.
Use Fill From Realist Tax
Time saver! When you’re ready to enter your listing into Matrix, you can select the ‘Fill from Realist Tax’ option to automatically add the address, legal description, and tax info.
