Tip of the Week for 4/8

Public & Agent Remarks

Of these two examples, which set of Agent/Public remarks would you prefer to see in a MLS listing?

Agent Remarks: Located in a quiet, quality neighborhood. Relax on the sheltered patio or get in your pontoon and enjoy that entire 3,400 acre chain of lakes. Curl up in front of the enormous rock fireplace in the family room. Many updates, including new roof and siding in ‘09.

Public Remarks: Located in a quiet, quality neighborhood. Relax on the sheltered patio or get in your pontoon and enjoy that entire 3,400 acre chain of lakes. Curl up in front of the enormous rock fireplace in the family room. Many updates, including new roof and siding in ‘09.

OR
Agent Remarks: Condo Covenants and restrictions apply. 48 hour notice needed for a showing. April 15, 2013 is deadline all offers received by 3PM will be submitted to bank.
Public Remarks: Located in a quiet, quality neighborhood. Relax on the sheltered patio or get in your pontoon and enjoy that entire 3,400 acre chain of lakes. Curl up in front of the enormous rock fireplace in the family room. Many updates, including new roof and siding in ‘09.

Most would choose the second set of remarks. Simply copying information from Public Remarks over into the Agent Remarks field is redundant and wastes space on your reports and on the listing. Use Agent Remarks for details you want to communicate to other agents. Keep Agent Remarks for all of your listings updated, especially if they are date specific. This will save yourself and other NorthstarMLS users a lot of time and frustration.
