RPR enters 2013 with the goal of delivering new RPR products and features to our remaining two RPR Constituents. The RPR Association/MLS Dashboard and the RPR Appraiser Tools are currently being developed with the assistance of Task Forces of REALTOR® volunteer leadership.
The Association/MLS Dashboard will focus on providing staff and leadership with the following tools:
- Member/Users statistics
- Market analytics
- Media tools
- Leadership communication
The Appraiser Tools will offer REALTORS® working in the appraisal sector access to:
- Refined search, selection, and adjustment of recent sales and competitive listings
- More granular location data
- Field import: flood and legal
- Market conditions and neighborhood commentary
- Implemented through a focus on forms data
- Print, save, manage, and report
Both sets of constituent products are scheduled to begin Beta testing in Q2 2013.
RPR Version 1.20
In conjunction with the RPR Constituent product development, RPR’s Development Team has been finalizing RPR version 1.20, which will go live next week. This version of the application includes a number of enhancements to RPR tools such as Comps Analysis and Reporting.
Since delivering the popular Comps Analysis tool, we have received considerable feedback from REALTORS® with desired enhancements. As a result in version 1.20 we added the ability to display only distressed properties, expanding from traditional filtering such as active listings, pending sales and off-market properties. We have also added a new date-based search function, the ability to see expanded details on each comp, while also implementing a new way to view the search parameters used in the comps analysis.
Also in version 1.20, the RPR Report cover can be personalized to include a unique name for a property or neighborhood. This new name will appear in place of the property address or the geographic area on the report cover.
The RPR Blog calendar has included our online training for RPR Residential, Broker Tools and Commercial since Q3 2012. In mid-January, RPR added a new United States Map to its existing calendar system, allowing Users to easily browse live training and events by state. New opportunities are being added daily, so look for the next class or event at a location near you.
