Better Than a Hot Sheet: Relevant Market Activity in Real Time

Real Estate Technology with Homesnap


Imagine that your MLS is like a firehose. Updates are continually pouring out: listings, sales, contracts, price changes. Some days, the feed is manageable, but on others you need a much bigger bucket.


It takes a lot of time and manpower to keep track of all the data that relate to your farm area and your clients’ needs. Now, there’s a much easier way.


Homesnap’s latest app update includes a complete revamp of the News Feed (the bottom-left tab in the app). This enhancement filters the firehose, cherry-picks only the most relevant updates and delivers them to you in real time. It’s like a social media news feed just for real estate info. Not only will you see price and status changes that are relevant to your listings, homes you favorite and the homes your clients favorite, but you will also be notified of the properties your clients favorite in the app.


Consider a client who is looking for a 2-bedroom home. You see in your News Feed that they favorite a listing with 3 bedrooms. Send the listing to your client with a note. “Hey Jeff, I saw that you’re interested in this home. Are you considering 3 bedrooms now as well?”


Since your client favorited that home, you’ll be notified of any price changes or if it goes under contract. It’s all automatic — you don’t have to do a thing!


You can also designate ZIP codes to monitor in the News Feed. Just tap the three dots on the top-right of any update in your feed, then select “Update my ZIP codes.”


Every morning, Homesnap will send you the latest updates via email so you’re aware of the most recent activity before you start the day. You can also check the in-app feed at any time — day or night — to get the latest scoop. These notifications will give you the information you need to answer client questions, land new clients and even increase your productivity.

I am just starting to use HomeSnap thanks to the Intermountain MLS.  I hope someone from HomeSnap will be attending our Tech Fair in Idaho in March.

I also hope there is a way we can use the mapping feature to track property lines on properties that are not just residential listings soon! (i.e. vacant land, recreational properties, farm and ranch, etc.)

Nice! Glad you started using the app.

We're still working on whether we can attend the Tech Fair. We hope to make it out, but not 100% sure at the moment.

Also, commercial listings are on our roadmap.
