E-neighborhood. Have you tried it?

Commercial Real Estate Agent with Doyno Realty

I get bombarded with companies/people telling me there product is best. What are your thoughts on this subject? Do you have some gripes or praise for any particular company or product?

What is good what isn't, how do you find your listings in the most cost effective way, and what is it that you do that makes you feel good about yourself in your work?

I'd love to know other peoples feelings please.

And if any sellers are out there do they have any comments on what type of person they are looking for.

I like e-neighborhoods. The reason I like it b/c you aren't under contract. You can pick what services you want to use, you can upgrade or downgrade. I love the buyers packet, the cma's and the neighborhood reports. These are the ones that I use. It seems that I downgrade and upgrade every so often, depending on how business is going.

I've tried it twice and dropped it in disgust both times. The service is redundant of most features that you can either do yourself or that you already have available. I was talked into trying it a second time by a representative who told me they had worked out the kinks, and added a bunch of new features. Baloney. The most dissappointing aspect was that the listings were not up to date.

WOW 2 totally different views here!

Lindsay I had a supposed 60 day free trial from e-neighborhoods that lasted exectly 4 days for some unknown reason. They were meant to phone me back last Friday and never did so i'm not too impressed with them.

Michael In the short amount of time I had it working it seemed to be quite slow and when i wanted flags for what is on the market and sold, expired etc, all it showed me were sold flags. I wasn't greatly impressed but thought it might just be me.

We like it. My hubby knows way more about how to use it than I do, though. Clients really are impressed with the charts and graphs of information we can provide to them. It's nice to have the e-mailed postcards go out when we list/sell a home.

Hope it helps.

I like PropertyMinder. I've bought their website a month or two ago and totally happy with the service.

Terri Yes i like the look of the available info too but cannot seem to get past where it only shows sold flags and not current sales. Do you have this problem?

Patsy Hi. So the service is good for you, That's a good start. Has it generated many listings for you also above and beyond what you were getting before?

I am not impressed with eneighborhoods..I was really hoping for something more then what is already offered on my current MLS site..I tried the free trial, but I am going to cancel right away.

I also tried it and found it to be no different than what I could do with the MLS.
