- RPR (website), iOS and Android (mobile) v1.37
- Released February 23, 2015
Let’s take a closer look at some of the changes you’ll see in our latest version, released on February 23, for the RPR website and the RPR mobile app.
Full Property Details from Comp Analysis
To enable REALTORS® to easily access property details for comparable properties, we added a link to each property returned in comps search. This link takes you directly to the full property details of a comp in a new browser tab, accelerating fact gathering and completion of the Comp Analysis workflow.
Updated Subject Lines when Emailing Reports
When emailing a property-based report from RPR, the subject line of the email includes the property address, making it easier for you, and your clients, to know exactly which property the report has been sent for. Neighborhood and Market Activity Reports also include location detail in the subject line.
Profile Page Updates
Do you have multiple types of real estate licenses? If so, you can add them to your RPR profile. Options include: Real Estate, Appraiser, NMLS and Other. All licenses on your Profile page can be selected to print on report covers.
For Android Users
Android users can append photos to properties from their phone’s albums, in addition to taking new photos to upload to property notes.
For iOS users
Users with Apple devices can add or remove MLS’s from their user profile.
Enhanced Economic Area Reports
State legislative boundaries been updated, reflecting any boundary changes made through 2014, for Local Economic Area Reports.
In addition, users can pick from the map one or more geographies to use in a Local Economic Area Report. Options include MCDs/Townships, ZIP Codes, and Census Tracts or Census Block Groups. Users can also still draw an outline of an area on the map to use. Search areas can be saved and used again in the future.
Service Module Display
Broker Service Modules display information about mortgage products and other services for participating brokers on agents’ profile pages and in reports. We improved the visibility of Broker Service Modules on website pages. All service modules now rotate every 15 seconds, instead of displaying in one long vertical column. With this is the option to scroll through the modules using “previous/next” links.
What we’re working on
Here’s a sneak peak at what we’re up to now:
- Property Flyer: A one-page flyer highlighting a property’s key information and photos, ready for your showing box or open house.
- Walkability Scores: Ratings of how walkable a neighborhood is, based on proximity to amenities and attractions, added to Property Details pages and reports.
- School Report: General information, test scores and reviews for elementary, middle and high schools.
- For Lease Search: Functionality for searching residential rental properties in markets where lease information is available through the MLS.
- RPR Mobile for tablets: Mobile functionality customized for the tablet format (iOS and Android).
