Homesnap Officially Launches Showings Platform

November 21 2021

introducing homesnap showings 1Homesnap has launched Homesnap Showings, an agent-friendly, easy-to-use real estate showings tool.

Homesnap Showings is a new, modern showing management tool that is included with your free Homesnap Pro account, courtesy of your MLS*.

Showings features a sleek interface that makes it easier to navigate than other, more outdated showings software, but it's not just the look that makes it unique. Homesnap Showings is also different because we're your partner, not your competitor. We surveyed thousands of agents asking what they wanted most out of a showing management tool, and used their feedback to help build Homesnap Showings.

We don't believe that agents should worry about showing management platforms sharing data with a competitor. With Homesnap Showings, you don't have to worry about that.

We've created a showings management platform that we believe both listing and buyer agents are going to love. Listing agents will enjoy that Showings is fast, easy-to-use, and provides them the ability to manage approvals from anywhere. Buyer's agents will be able to utilize instant bookings and seamless client communication.

Check out the biggest benefits that Homesnap Showings provides both listing and buyer's agents and learn why Homesnap Showings will be the go-to showings management platform for you, your colleagues, and your clients.

Benefits of Homesnap Showings for Listing Agents

Fast, easy-to-use setup

Each agent has a unique schedule, each seller has unique expectations, and each listing has unique requirements. With Homesnap Showings, you can easily customize your listing to meet those needs. Set up a listing's rules in just a few clicks.

First, select the showing type that is right for you. Whether you need approvals from everyone, one person, or no approvals needed, you choose.

Then, add who you want to be an approver or notified of requests and select available times. Add access and special instructions (for agents-only or public viewing).

Go live in one click

Once you have customized your showing to your preferences, simply click the "Accepting Showings Requests" toggle to tell the world your listing is available! If you've accepted an offer and want to turn off showings, simply turn off showings in one click. If you have future showings scheduled, you can choose to keep or cancel them.

Manage approvals from anywhere

Being flexible has never been more important to agents. Whether in your car, at a showing, or at your desk, you can approve or decline showing requests directly from notifications. Simplify your daily workflow by setting your communication preferences and approve or deny requests directly from SMS, push notifications, email, or all three.

Manage approvals with ease

With Google calendar integrations, you have the power to see all of your requests in one place. When you have a pending request or a confirmed booking, it will automatically populate your calendar. Spend less time managing your schedule and more time doing the things you love.

Less follow-up. More feedback.

Ninety percent of agents interviewed and surveyed by Homesnap emphasized the importance of receiving feedback from buyer's agents after a showing. Listing agents also expressed how they spent countless hours sending follow-ups to buyer's agents to get feedback. Homesnap Showings handles those follow-ups for you. Strategically timed, automatic reminders are sent following the showing and increase responses from the buyer's side.

Once feedback comes through, you will be alerted instantly. You can view all your organized feedback on your listing report. You decide whether to share that feedback with your seller. Not all feedback is created equal, so you get to choose.

Streamlined reporting

Easily understand the outcome of your showing strategy, whether you have one or 100 listings. Keep tabs on your listing and showing trends over time. With easy-to-read reports, you can get a complete picture of your listing performance. Glean better insights to continuously evolve your listing strategy and set new best practices.

Benefits of Homesnap Showings for Buyer Agents

Instant bookings

With Homesnap Showings, there's no more need to make calls or wait to schedule a showing. Preset by the listing agent, all available times are presented for you to quickly and seamlessly select. If the property requires approval, the listing agent will be immediately notified upon your submission. Homesnap Showings will hold the calendar reservation even before approval to avoid double bookings.

Seamless agent communication

With Homesnap Messages, Showings keeps agents in-the-know. Once you submit your request, the listing agent will receive a notification — and as soon as they approve your request, you will be informed immediately!

Life can be messy. If you have an issue, need to reschedule, or just have a quick question, you can use Homesnap Messages to send the listing agent a note directly within the Homesnap app.

Customized itineraries

Use Showings to plan the optimal day for a buyer. With itineraries, you customize the best experience for your client. Whether you plan a day to see one property or 10 properties, you have full control over your itinerary, even if one of the properties on your itinerary is managed with a different showing management tool.

Your whole schedule, access details, and agent contact info will be in one place. You can easily share the day you planned with your client, and even add non-showing related stops such as coffee or lunch to make sure that your client is having a positive, enjoyable experience.

Smart routing

Once you have built your itinerary and booked your showings, Homesnap Showings will automatically map out the best route to take. You can adjust and set the path you wish to take and share it with your client — no more fumbling for directions or getting lost.

Easier feedback, better client collaboration

Within your itinerary dashboard, you can access easy-to-use feedback forms to let the listing agent know how your client felt about the property. Once your showing ends, you will receive automatic notifications that give you the option to work with your client and provide comments or interest level in the property. In this way, Homesnap Showings is designed to help you partner with your clients to close deals, and helps ensure that you won't lose contact with your most valuable leads.
