2014 “Must Haves”


The IRES release cycle is aggressive, with product updates scheduled every two weeks. For brokers (and us at IRES, too!) it can be difficult to keep up with the latest on IRESis. So, here are the “must haves” from 2014, the features that could change how you do business.

Instant Prospects: Since 2001 IRES emailed listing updates to your clients up to three times per day. But as of January 2014, you can send new or changed listings within minutes of them being entered into the MLS. And because it’s straight from IRESis, the information is current and continually updated. There is no better search anywhere. Learn more…

Drip Searches: On the other end of the setschedulespectrum, we also added the ability to slow your searches down.  Some clients may not be ready to buy, but want to keep an eye on the market.  So, we added a Monthly and Weekly option as well.

Easy Prospect Search Set Up: You chatted with someone at a party, saved their search, and sent thprospectem a few properties. Now, they would like to see new listings every day. Do you have to recreate the search on the Prospects screen? Nope! Just open your search, click the “Prospects” dropdown, and then select “Create as Prospect”. Simple as pie.

MySite Activity Summary Report: You now automatically receive this report every Monday so you can see who is logging into MySite. Be sure to click your client’s name to see their detailed usage report including their Favorites and Notes! (Log into IRESis first.)

Online Showings: Now any office, big or small, can allow cooperating brokers to request showings online. We’ve heard that listings which allow online showing requests have an advantage over those that don’t since brokers often review listings after hours. Don’t miss this great feature, at no additional cost. Learn more…

Osyndicationpt Out Of Syndication: If your office sends listings to Zillow or Trulia but you would prefer to delay syndication for a few days or not send your listing at all, you can chose to exclude it in Add/Edit Listing. (Note: Affects listings syndicated through ListHub only.)

Free IDX via ColoProperty.com®: One more! Our free IDX solution received a beautiful facelift. Register to frame ColoProperty.com on your site in the new Standard or Mountain format. Also, register for an Inventory link to display your listings or your offices’ listings. Learn more
