The following enhancements were made in the Paragon system this month:
Interactive Map Layers – A new tool is available to permanently save shapes on your map search. These interactive layers can be created under your preferences, and once created and saved, will be available under the map search tab in your property search. Toggle these shapes on or off as part of your search criteria. Click the shape to run a search of listings within that shape. Additional criteria can be edited on the criteria tab. If you want to save a neighborhood, a school zone, a municipal zoning, or any other custom shapes, these interactive map layers are a great way to retain these map shapes for ongoing searches. Note: Brokers/Admins can create shapes at the Office level. Agents can create only at the agent level.
Save Options Added to Quick Search – Similar now to full search, the ability to ‘Apply’, ‘Apply/Save’, and ‘Apply/Save As’ have been added to the quick search settings so users can more easily save their preferred searches and criteria.
Session Expiration Notice – A new alert has been added to remind folks at 5 minutes and 2 minutes before a Paragon session will end. A pop-up reminder will appear automatically as the session approaches those times. Note: the user has to update their browser settings to allow Paragon to send them an alert. A browser alert should appear for the user to select ‘Allow’. If not, the user may click the ‘lock’ icon next to the URL on their browser and manually update the setting. If they do not want this setting, they may select ‘Block’. This feature is optimized for Chrome browser, with additional browser support in the future.
Listing Activity Report Extended – The listing activity report has been extended from 120 days to the entire life of the listing. The listing activity report can be found under the ‘select an action’ link next to each listing. This information is also available within Collaboration Center for agents that have linked their seller contact to a listing.
City and State Added to Sales Detail Report – The statistical report called Sales Detail Report now shows City and State within the address field on the results page. Previously, only the street address was shown. Now the city and state details show too.
Adjust Values on in CMA Reports – The ‘base’ adjustment now shows on both the Horizontal Report and Summary of Adjustments reports within the CMA tool. Previously, the adjustments only showed the ‘calculated’ value. Now it shows the adjustment that is being calculated. So for example, if I added a $5k adjustment for a garage space, and the comp has 3 more spaces, it would have only shown a $15k change. Now, it also shows that ‘base’ $5k value, so the print outs now include what was added by the agent when they built the CMA.
A selection of ‘Buy In Fee‘ has been added to all three “Fee Includes” fields in all property classes.
