You know that thrill you get when you come across a tip or trick that helps make your app experience just a tad more efficient?
Like pressing the app button for a shortcut to a favorite feature, or swiping to the left to quickly save for later. Every app has tricks of the trade, yet for some reason, they don’t always appear magically on our radar. This post will give you nine tips to make sure your next experience with the free Realtors Property Resource® app is a productive one.
Build a comparative market analysis on the go. When the need arises for a CMA when you’re away from the computer, turn to your RPR® app. From any property details screen, choose create comps analysis to launch an express, four-step wizard that will walk you through confirmation of the home’s facts, selecting comps and identifying price. The completion of step four will generate the seller’s report.
Save properties for quick access later. Your activity is always in-sync between the RPR® website and mobile app. Which means when you save a property using the website, you can see that same property in your saved items by way of the app. This makes it a snap to recall key properties quickly. Try it for yourself.
Tap in list view for shortcuts. Next time you’re in the RPR® app and see a list of properties, try tapping the button in the right corner of any property to reveal shortcuts for saving the property, calling the listing agent, adding notes and creating reports.
Zoom to parcel level when canvassing a neighborhood. The RPR® app can display every home in the neighborhood on a map. Press locate me at the top of the app, then pinch and zoom the map to street level and press redo search in this area. Pins over the properties should now appear. Each pin displays the Realtor Valuation Model®. Press a pin to reveal home and owner information.
Send report by text message. Many consumers prefer communication by text message when appropriate. For agents, the benefit is clear; text messages are simple and have very high open rates. Next time you create an RPR® report, use the app’s share button to text a digital copy of the RPR® report to your client. The link will be active for 30 days.
Buyer tour reports are on mobile. RPR’s® buyer tour report, found in the RPR® app, will make an agent’s life a little easier and give buyers a supersized impression of his/her Realtor’s® skill set. Simple in nature but comprehensive all the same, the new report enables agents to select properties, determine the order with which to tour them and then the ability to create a colorful, client-friendly report to share with buyers.
3D touch shortcuts are now available. Next time you are standing outside a property you’re about to search, press and hold the RPR app icon to display a shortcut with buttons to this property, my listings, recent reports, saved searches and share. Then choose this property. This is an example of RPR’s® new 3D touch functionality available on qualified OS versions (iOS10 and above [Phone 6s and newer] and Android 7.1 and above).
Use your mobile for advanced search. Need to dig a little deeper on a particular property? Swipe the RPR® app’s home screen and the search screen will appear. Press advanced search to access recent searches, saved searches and advanced search types such as by APN, owner name, schools or even your own listings.
Check out the full-screen photos. If photos displayed on the app’s property details page aren’t large enough for your comfort level, try holding your phone in landscape mode. That will make the photo go full screen. Then simply rotate back and the property record appears again.
