Quick Print - Property Details

Have you ever wanted to print property information quickly for a client? Capturing the complete record for a property is easier with a printer-friendly Quick Print option on the Properties Details page. It's adjacent to the Create a Report button and is available for Residential and Commercial properties. 

Which photo will appear on the printed page? Your print will show the property photo that was displayed when Quick Print was selected.  



School Ratings on Property Details

School ratings are now visible on the Property Details page. Each school's ratings are shown in the Schools and Schools Nearby sections, in Residential and Commercial mode. A link to the School Details page is included when available.



Commercial Trade Area Report Comparisons 

RPR has all the data that you need to help you assist your commercial client in property selection.  You can now see detailed demographic data such as daytime population, average household size, and median household income compared between a 1-3-5 mile radius or 3-5-10 minute drive time in our Commercial Trade Area Report.  

Select Distance or Drive Time from the "Use a map pin" drop-down, then click on a location on the map. Choose a 1-3-5 mile radius or 3-5-10 minute drive and click Apply. Once the new area is defined in purple on the map, click within the area and select Create Trade Area Report. 


The results show on charts throughout the Commercial Trade Area Report, with the radius or drive time that you selected displaying in bold text. The charts compare metrics based on the 1-3-5 mile distance or 3-5-10 minute drive time.




Customized Timeframes for New, Recently Sold and Recently Leased

We know that each real estate market is unique, so we added timeframe settings that allow you to choose the length of time a listing is defined as New, Recently Sold, or Recently Leased. Now you can control how properties are represented in your searches and how they are displayed to you and identified in your reports.

Go to Settings to set your timeframes: 

    • New listing options are 1-30 days
    • Recently Sold/Leased options are 7-180 days

Also note that the Settings and Profile section is now separated into two tabs. You can access both by clicking the wheel-shaped icon in the header. Select the Profile tab to upload your photo and logo, add your contact information or change your password. Select the Settings tab to add your Home Areas or to customize timeframes for property statuses. 



Neighborhood Boundary Data Refresh

A quarterly refresh of Maponics neighborhood and school district boundaries added or improved neighborhood information in 45 metro areas and added 9,700 residential areas.

Commercial Tenant Data Refresh

A quarterly refresh of SMR Commercial tenant data updated the information for up to 8 million tenants in commercial properties.



Customized Timeframes for New, Recently Sold and Recently Leased

The ability to set the length of time a property is defined as New, Recently Sold, or Recently Leased is available in the mobile app too. You can control how listings are represented in search and counted on the ambient home screen. Go to Settings in the header to adjust your timeframes. Any changes you make in the website are changed in the mobile application too.
