LISTINGS MANAGEMENT: Unclosed Listing Assistance is live! We collect CRS deed transfer data, compare it to open listings, and notify brokers/list agents/co-list agents when there’s a listing that appears it should be closed. Those notifications are sent in the form of a) an email and b) Listing Action Items in Listing Management. The goal of this is to increase listing history accuracy, have correct agent deal flow stats, and represent the current state of the market by guiding our users to minimize the number of unclosed listings.

UPDATES RELEASED May 13, 2022
SEARCH: When performing a Listings Search, you can now exclude criteria from the following fields:
- Zip Code
- Public Remarks
Simply start your search phrase with a minus (-) sign to exclude that data from your search results.
LISTING MANAGEMENT: To help our listing agents more effectively market their listings - specifically when they use the ‘Coming Soon’ status prior to making their listing Active - we’ve updated the following:
- When reviewing Coming Soon listings in search results, Open House information is displayed in the Hot Info section (just like an Active or UC-Showing listing).
- Coming Soon listings Open House information is visible in the list view, thumbnail view and included in downloads.
- Emails that include Coming Soon listings show Open House information, when available.
- To prevent problems, Open Houses may only be scheduled to occur AFTER the Availability Date (Make Active On / Available for Showing date).
- When a Coming Soon listing has an Availability Date extension (delay listing from going Active), we automatically clear out Open Houses that fall before the new Availability Date.
- We’ve added Open House data for Coming Soon listings to our Data Dictionary feed for our data consumers to display, too.
UPDATES RELEASED May 11, 2022
SEARCH: You can now search the RT4 subdivision field using special characters, as well as the % wildcard.
UPDATES RELEASED April 28, 2022
SHOWINGS: In an effort to be abundantly clear, we’ve added a possessive noun in front of the word ShowingTime in both the Office & Showing section of a listing (where showing service selection is made) and on the listing report (where appointments are scheduled with the showing service). It now says “Zillow’s ShowingTime” to ensure full understanding of the offerings.
MEMBERSHIP: The Membership Create User tool now has a new workflow, making it easier and more reliable to Activate new Users, or manage existing Users for the Membership team!
UPDATES RELEASED April 27, 2022
RT4 SEARCH PANEL UPDATES:
- We updated the "trash can icon" to include the word "Clear" to indicate it will clear the criteria; we received feedback after releasing Hot Sheets that users were afraid clicking the trash can would delete their hot sheet, so we wanted to clear up any confusion :drum_with_drumsticks:
- Using "Clear" also puts users back to a "fresh start" by clearing out previous results and unloading a saved search, if one is loaded.
- The additional criteria tab has now been renamed to "Add Criteria" since you can now remove directly from the panel using the (x) icon and no longer have to use that modal to remove
SHOWINGS: Listing Agents now have the ability to quickly send emails to anyone that has shown or is scheduled to show their listing. This helps with things like letting buyer agents know there is a multiple offer situation, offers are due by xx/xx, listing is under contract, or even - in a different type of market - that the price was reduced. Here’s how it works: https://youtu.be/QthpCOnwiG4

UPDATES RELEASED April 18, 2022
LISTINGS MANAGEMENT: We have loosened the restriction that prevented agents from entering a close price that differs by more than +/- 25% from list price. There is now a soft warning in place for anything +/- 10% and agents won’t be required to have their broker close the listing for them. As part of this work, we also addressed a bug in Quick Edit that was not firing off the list price warning to alert users to a large (+/- 10%) list price increase/decrease.
UPDATES RELEASED April 13, 2022
LISTINGS MANAGEMENT, ACTION ITEMS: As a reminder, the action items (along with targeted emails) serve to raise awareness about listing updates to agents who have listings that are being imported from another MLS.
We’ve updated the action item logic - with the goal of noise reduction - to automatically remove the following “to do” items from the Action Item list:
- Informative action items if/when they age 7 days
- New listing action item (saying they need to make a listing active) if/when the listing status is changed
- Any action item if/when the associated listing is manually edited and saved
- Any action item if/when a listing goes to a final state (withdrawn, closed, expired)

NEW PRINT OPTIONS: Based on recent user feedback we've added and revised our print options when printing a full listing report. The following options are now available for Agent and Buyer reports:

- Full Report: The listing report will print in full, without truncating any remarks or cutting off any sections. If necessary, the report may spill over to print on a second page.
- Search by State: Users can now search by state under the Additional Criteria! If State is selected, other location criteria is not required. This is available for both Listings Search and Hot Sheets.
UPDATES RELEASED April 8, 2022

- LISTING MANAGEMENT: We’ve added “Conventional” as a listing field value option under Buyer Financing. This came up during our work with Chattanooga, and rather than just assuming Conventional applied, they requested being able to explicitly add it. :handshake: Now it’s mapped in the listing import process as well.

- Activity Summary: A quick glance at all market activity since the search start date, broken down by Listing Activity type. Reason column (List View)
- Previous List Price (List View): This column is still compiling data, starting as of about mid-morning today, so changes to List Price prior to today won't currently appear in the Previous List Price column of Hot Sheets. We will continue to let this bake for a few days, so that when users begin to use this up to the max Hot Sheet time of 7 days, all of the data will be populated.
UPDATES RELEASED February 7, 2022
- SHOWINGS: We added a little note about seller showing ‘restrictions’ to the appointment scheduler. The note is driven off of the new Minimum Notice to Show field and is meant to help minimize the calls to listing agents for last minute appointments / impromptu drive by visits when a desired time slot isn’t available.
We now send the showing appointment feedback request to showing agents ~ 2 hours after the completion of the appointment (previously 15 minutes).
- LISTING MANAGEMENT: We’ve updated the Save As process in listings to default to ‘Active’ status. This change — done in an effort to help minimize calls to Support — is an improvement from our previous implementation where we showed the current status of ‘Incomplete’ when first entering.
UPDATES RELEASED February 2, 2022

- Remarks: As part of our work for Chattanooga, we've recently updated the Public and Private remarks to the following limits:
- Public: 800 (formerly 500)
- Private: 500 (formerly 300
Since this will change how our listing reports appear on the webpage and on a printed page, we are also making the following updates to correspond with this. When listing reports include more than the previous character limits (500/300) we'll do 2 things:
- add a more link to the end of the remarks field which will open up a modal overlay to show remarks in their entirety , truncate the printed report to the previous limit (500/300) so as to not make the printed report be longer than 1 page.
- This will allow us to continue to update Remarks as needed without impacting reports.

- Showing Service: Added the ability for listing agents and sellers to comment on the “Reason” when declining a new showing appointment request or cancelling an existing one.

UPDATES RELEASED September 17, 2021
