Productivity was the name of the game for RPR users in 2017. The Platform introduced scores of new tools and features that make a real estate agent’s business day a little better, from simple solutions like voice-to-text transcription to the ability to create a CMA using your phone. Here are the most popular enhancements from 2017.
1. Search by Voice
Now, RPR makes it easier for REALTORS® on the go by introducing voice-to-text search capability in RPR Mobile™. Tap the magnifying glass icon from within any of the search fields to initiate voice to text transcription. This new feature is also available when using the Property Notes function on RPR.
2. A comp analysis on the fly
The app’s offerings have been expanded to include Comp Analysis Express––a simple, intuitive interface to create an on-the-go CMA using your phone or tablet. Update or install RPR Mobile™ to see for yourself.
3. Notifications on RPR Mobile™
Be the first to know about status, price, and estimated value changes on your saved properties or listed inventory. RPR’s new notification settings allow you the ability to control notification types you would like to receive. Visit the app’s Settings tool to get started.
4. SMR Commercial Tenant data
A recent integration adds data on more than seven million tenants, such as name, suite number, move-in date, type of business, and business start date. You can also add or edit tenant information. The data can be found on Commercial Property Reports as well as printed as a stand-alone report.
5. Add custom home facts
This newly added function allows users to add their own custom home facts. Items added to the RPR Property Details page will also be added to RPR Property Reports, Comp Analyses and Seller’s Reports.
6. Traffic count data arrives in RPR Commercial and mobile
Now, RPR offers the industry’s most current traffic measurement product to its website and app users with 24-hour average daily traffic counts for highways and roads throughout the United States.
7. Insert PDF templates into RPR Reports
Easily custom files into reports you create from RPR. The new feature is an excellent way to showcase your biography, testimonials, additional statistics, and specific marketing tools and methods you employ for clients. Brokers enrolled in RPR’s Broker Tool Set have the option to also include an additional five PDF pages for their agents to use as well.
8. Residential lease searches
RPR users now have access to more than 167,000 active lease properties and more than eight million off-market rental properties from their mobile phones.
9. Open Houses on the RPR app
Planning your open house tour just got a whole lot easier thanks to a significant upgrade to the RPR app. A new “Open House” feature on the app’s home screen provides a count of open houses, see properties in search results with upcoming open houses, search exclusively for open houses and to filter by date.
10. Good news for FPCs,GADs and Association staff
Now, NAR’s quarterly Congressional District Reports on housing trends can be easily inserted into RPR’s Economic Area Reports. RPR’s Federal Economic Area Report offers insights into the demographics, consumer behavior and economic activity of your congressional district or state.
