Homesnap – New Listing Syndication Option

The NEREN® MLS is pleased to announce a new relationship with Homesnap!
Homesnap is a third party real estate search platform for people to explore homes and search real estate listings online at www.homesnap.com or from a mobile phone, via the Homesnap app.
In addition to providing a website or app experience, the information available to a consumer is also different from that of an agent of a participating MLS.
The Agent Experience:
Known as Homesnap Pro, an agent of NEREN may set up their Agent Account and have access to Active, Active Under Contract, Pending and Closed MLS listings in real-time, and many other agent-only features that will be highlighted in future communications. Because ‘Pro’ is only for agents of participating MLS’s, MLS listings will be available in Homesnap Pro.
The Consumer Experience:
Consumers have the option of going to homesnap.com or to download and use the Homesnap app to search for Active and Active Under Contract listings. If you wish for your listing(s) to be available to consumers for search and display via Homesnap, you will need to authorize the MLS to distribute your listing(s) to Homesnap.
Optional Action Item:
To enable your office to send listings to Homesnap, you will need to log into nerenmls.com, and on the Dashboard, click on the “Brokers/Admins Edit Office Profile” tile.

You will then need to check the box as shown below, to “opt-in” to send your office’s listings to Homesnap for consumers to search/view.

There is another switch in Listing Maintenance so that if an office has selected to send listings to Homesnap and a seller does not wish for their listing to be marketed to consumers on Homesnap, there will be the option to select “No” in the Homesnap.com data authorization as shown below. If your seller does wish to send their listings to Homesnap, then please select “Yes”.

Introducing Homesnap – A Free Member Benefit!

The NEREN® MLS is pleased to announce a new free member benefit – Homesnap!

Homesnap is a third party real estate search platform to explore homes and search real estate listings online at www.homesnap.com or from a mobile phone, via the Homesnap app! We are pleased to announce the availability of NEREN listing data to members in Homesnap as of Wednesday, January 24, 2018!
In addition to providing an app or website experience, the information available to a consumer is also different from that of an agent of a participating MLS as described below.
The Agent Experience:
Known as Homesnap Pro, an agent of NEREN may set up their Agent Account and have access to Active, Active Under Contract, Pending and Closed MLS listings in real-time, and many other agent-only features that will be highlighted in future communications. Because ‘Pro’ is only for agents of participating MLS’s, no action is required for your listings to be available in Homesnap Pro. This information is available in the Homesnap App, or by logging into the homesnap.com website.
Some of the Agent-only features of Homesnap Pro include:
  • Access MLS data on the go with the Homesnap Pro app
  • Instant info on any property, not just listings
  • Message within Homesnap to communicate and share properties with clients and other agents
  • Branded version of Homesnap for your clients and contacts
  • Your listing, your lead
  • Homesnap’s Safety Timer provides an added layer of protection when meeting unfamiliar prospects
  • And much more. Click here to learn more about Homesnap.

The Consumer Experience:
Consumers have the option of going to homesnap.com or to download and use the Homesnap app to search for Active and Active Under Contract listings. If you wish for your listing(s) to be available to consumers for search and display via Homesnap, you will need to authorize the MLS to distribute your listing(s) to Homesnap. As with other third party websites, the office first has to opt-in to permit your listings to be distributed to Homesnap. If your office has opted-in, and you wish for your listing to be available for search in Homesnap, you will need to select “Yes” in the Data Authorizations section of listing maintenance in Paragon.
