Released September 4, 2014
This release marks the culmination of the background work on one of RPR’s biggest projects: RPR Mobile (coming soon!). In addition, this release includes some improvements to many areas of the site, including displaying square footage ranges, a new chart in the RPR Market Data Report for MLSs and Associations, and additional details on HOA and room description information. Below are highlights for version 1.33 of RPR.
After hundreds of hours of collaboration and hard work, we’re excited to announce that RPR Mobile will be available for download later this month. Available for iOS in the upcoming weeks, with an Android version shortly behind it, RPR Mobile leverages the power of your smartphone with the strength of RPR, allowing REALTORS® to be more productive in the field. Keep an eye on our RPR Blog for more information and our official release announcement.
Comp Analysis – Comments now on Reports
RPR recognizes that a REALTOR’s® comments about a property can add information clients are looking for. Now when you create a Seller’s Report, you can include any comments from your Comp Analysis. Include them all, leave them off, or easily pick and choose which comments to include on your report when running the Comp Analysis.
Square Footage Ranges
Not every market provides an exact square footage. That’s why we’ve created a range display. When available, High and Low Square Footage will display on both the Property Details page, as well as in the Historical Compare feature of RPR.
If a property has a Homeowners Association, it’s important for a buyer to understand the details. New fields in the HOA section on the Property Details page have now been added. These fields display if the data is included in the listing from the MLS.
MLS and Association Market Data Report
Sales by Geography Chart
Always looking to increase the data available in the MLS and Association Dashboard, we have added a new chart to the monthly Market Data Report that shows sales count by geography, highlighting the most active sales areas within an MLS territory. The report is emailed monthly to those MLSs and Associations who have RPR Dashboard access. Don’t yet have access? Sign up here: http://blog.narrpr.com/dashboard-registration/
This and That
Other enhancements and fixes in this release include:
- “Favorites” renamed to “Saved”: The “Favorites” dropdown has been renamed to “Saved.” The functionality has not changed; saving properties works the same way. Only the name itself has changed on both the RPR Residential and Commercial platforms.
- Updated Test Scores: Additional test scores from Great Schools have been added.
- Virtual Tours: Links to Virtual Tours will now be suppressed after a property has been inactive for 30 days.
- Additional Room Details: When available, information about a property’s bonus features, such as an attic, breakfast area or utility room, display on the Property Details page in the Interior Features section.
