Virtual Properties Releases iPad Listing Presentation App
January 22, 2019 Madison, WI – Virtual Properties a leading real estate broker and agent software provider serving 7000 agents and brokers, announced today that they have launched their updated iPad Listing Presentation app. The Virtual Properties Listing Presentation application is the first of its kind to run natively on an iPad, combining a live MLS data powered CMA with Public Record data to blend a best of breed CMA tool with listing presentation materials, a dynamic Net Sheet, interactive pricing screens, integrated document and report management. Madison, WI based First Weber was the first enterprise brokerage to deploy the application to over 1500 agents under their brand name for the app, Main Street Pro. First Weber agent, Charlie Wills is a 15-year real estate sales associate who produces around 110 transactions per year. To date, Wills has used the new Main Street Pro application 80 times and closed 65 listing presentations. "It used to take me hours to prepare a listing presentation for a client and another two hours to present it to the customer. With the new Main Street Pro app, the whole process from creation to customer signature is about 45 minutes," says Wills. Wills credits the product with delivering the best application for having a pricing discussion with sellers. Specifically, it allows him to pull up live data that shows how pricing over the market will not only take the home longer to sell, but the home will typically sell below market when it eventually does trade. "The app allows me to explain and chart some pretty complicated economic realities with my clients in real time. I can show them what is happening using MLS data with comparable homes, time on market, list to sell ratios, along with my performance on my listings. Time and time again, I am able to work with my sellers to price right and sell above market in fewer days." Wills tracks his performance and holds a 98.96% list to sell ratio in a market where the average agent holds a 95% list to sell ratio. Wills indicates that the work that Virtual Properties has done to develop an application that produces beautiful interactive presentations on top of live data blows away competitors with basic CMAs or worse yet, MLS print outs. "Listing presentations are conversational," says Wills, "and now I can dynamically show buyers and sellers the data in real time that answers their questions with extreme accuracy and reliability." Virtual Properties' co-founder Jim Zellmer believes that this is the first listing presentation application for real estate that blends MLS data and public record data into a mobile app with live data. "With listing presentations, you need to start with the public record data and build the pricing strategy looking at active, pending, and sold records from the MLS. We make that happen with live data on an iPad, a powerful and very easy to use mobile presentation device. Our app creates beautiful, active presentations, including flying into an address on a map, animated charts, sound and video and one tap property comparisons, with adjustments. Agents can quickly share a concise summary, personalized video, PDF reports and a netsheet via social, messaging, airdrop and email. The CMA and saved searches are automatically available in CRM. Listing agreements and offers are just a tap away.

Realtors Property Resource Releases the 2018 State of the Listing Presentation
Findings show relationships and home valuations are key for successful listing presentations CHICAGO –– Realtors Property Resource (RPR), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS, announces the results of the 2018 REALTOR State of the Listing Presentation. The report includes findings from a survey of more than 450 REALTORS and reveals trends on what sellers want from a listing presentation. According to the study, most REALTORS® still give listing presentations in-person. This is indicative of the value REALTORS® place on client relationships, also evidenced in follow up methods post-presentation. The majority of REALTORS® choose to follow up via phone call, as opposed to an email. These personal interactions prove successful, as nearly half of respondents said a listing presentation results in a signed contract 76 to 100 percent of the time. The survey also revealed home valuations are, perhaps, the most crucial part of a listing presentation for both REALTORS® and sellers. Eight out of 10 respondents agreed it is extremely important to provide an accurate valuation to a seller in the listing presentation. More than 40 percent of sellers request a valuation ahead of the listing presentation. Half of REALTORS® include a valuation in their pre-listing package, and nearly 80 percent always provide one during the listing presentation. "The survey indicates home valuations are the subject of one of the most-asked questions during a listing presentation," said Reggie Nicolay, RPR vice president of marketing. "Valuations are confusing to many sellers, and a listing presentation is the perfect opportunity for REALTORS® to educate clients on how valuations are calculated." Additional key findings from the 2018 REALTOR® State of the Listing Presentation Report include: An overwhelming majority (93 percent) of REALTORS® hold their listing presentations face-to-face. A majority follow up via a phone call, with over 40 percent even sending a handwritten note. 84 percent of REALTORS® agree that it is extremely important to present an accurate valuation model in the first meeting with a seller. 21 percent of REALTORS® report the top questions they are asked during a listing presentation are questions about home value. Additionally, 19 percent said the top questions are about how much the home will sell for or the listing price. RPR provides REALTORS® with many tools to increase the effectiveness of their listing presentations, including customizable property reports and comparable market analysis. To aid REALTORS® in conversations about valuations, RPR also offers the Realtors Valuation Model®. RVMs allow REALTORS® to estimate valuations based on factors AVMs do not take into account, thereby showcasing their expertise in the industry.
