5 Things to Do Now to Save Time Later

Have you ever been in the throes of work and crunched for time, wondering if there’s a faster way to complete the task at hand so you can quickly get your clients the information they need? Spoiler alert: there’s almost always a faster way, especially if you customize Matrix ahead of time, and take time to download or set up your REcolorado tools. We’ve put together five timesaver tips to help get you started, but this list is just the beginning. You’ll learn all the different ways to efficiently complete your work if you register for training, sign up for Learn@Lunch webinars, view recorded webinars, or contact sandersonoakes@REcolorado.com to schedule a training class at your office or REALTOR® association.

Build Custom Displays

One of the many benefits of Matrix is that it’s customizable. For example, when you generate a search and arrive at your search results display, the default Single Line view may not include everything you need. But you can quickly customize it, and save that custom display for future searches, as well. Training Webinar On Demand: Save Time With Matrix: Learn to Build and Use Custom Displays >>

Use Case: Let’s say you’re generating a CMA from your search results and you want to include several different data points that aren’t included in the default view, such as original price, sold price, or days on market. Build a custom display so you can quickly view the information you want.

Upload Your Supplements

When you’re entering a listing into the MLS, it can be tempting to skip over adding your supplements, like the required lead-based paint disclosure, in favor of adding them later. And while it may save you a few minutes then, you’ll likely have even less time to do it later, especially if a buyer’s agent happens to ask you for the documents while you’re in the middle of a meeting or you’re trying to complete other, unrelated business. Additionally, uploading supplements ahead of time can make the appraisal go more quickly, which your clients will appreciate. So, save yourself a headache. Take time to upload your supplements when you’re adding your listing to REcolorado. How to Add Supplements to Your Listing >>
