Homesnap Pro launched in central Ohio on 2/26/19! This is a result of a partnership between Columbus REALTORS® and the Broker Public Portal and is being provided for free as a member service!
The industry-endorsed Homesnap platform leverages real-time data from 170 MLSs to empower millions of consumers each month with a superior home search experience.
Unlike other online search portals, Homesnap focuses on protecting agents, their listings and their relationships. Homesnap abides by “your listing, your lead” guidelines which helps you connect with your clients in real time and strengthen agent-client communication.
With the Homesnap app, you’ll be able to:
- message and share listings with clients (and other agents)
- send professional, automatically branded CMAs to clients in seconds
- invite clients to connect in Homesnap
- see which properties clients are interested in, which will allow you to provide more personalized and relevant support
- walk the property lines
- view agent-only MLS data, such as commission splits, showing instructions and confidential listing information
- access information about any home (whether or not for sale), such as value, last sale date and price, listing history, similar active listings, recent sales comps, lot boundaries, etc.
- integrate with ShowingTime and CSS
- view complete details on every agent in the area, including a portfolio of recent activity, sales and deal flow
With the Homesnap app, your clients will be able to:
- search listings by address, street, commute time, zip code, map, school zones, MLS ID and more
- save their searches
- message directly with you within the app
- take a picture of any home and get information on that home — listed or not
- take a 3D tour of any listing (if available)
First to know when a home hits the market
Like in many markets, inventory is scarce in Columbus, and great homes go fast. With Homesnap, agents and home buyers both can see what’s happening in the market in real-time, so they don’t risk missing out on that perfect home.
Recommend Homesnap for home searching
Let’s face it, clients like to search for homes on their own. Many of you are lax to recommend other portals as they include paid branding by other agents. With Homesnap, if a contact has accepted your invite, they become your client. So, recommend they use Homesnap to search for homes. They will only see your branding.
In addition to being able to search by address, street, zip code, map, school zones, and MLS ID, with Homesnap, you and your clients can draw custom searches with your finger. You can also “Search by Commute” to find homes close to work, daycare, etc.
