We hope you’re enjoying Matrix 360, which was released last month and is available to all NorthstarMLS subscribers. A cool new feature with this release is the addition of the Parcel Map tab. These interactive maps allow you to switch between map and satellite view. It also displays brief tax and listing information on the parcel. You can also enable map layers and more. “Walk the block” to see the whole neighborhood!

Our video below shows you how to utilize the Parcel Map tab in Matrix. Give it a view!

We hope you're enjoying Matrix 360, which was released earlier this month. A great new feature with this release is the ability to search Public Records right in Matrix – without having to open Realist separately like you did in the past.

Matrix 360 is here! It's the latest version of Matrix, integrating Realist public records tax data and enhanced features. Below are links to some quick videos for you to see how it works. But really, all you need to do is run a listings search, click an MLS number for the full display and start exploring the tabs across the top of the sceen. We also have "Public Record" search right here in Matrix under the Search tab!

There are no major changes to your workflow–Matrix 360 simply unifies listing data and Realist property data into the same Matrix interface you already know. You may work with tax records just like Matrix listings. Create searches, get results, view details, print and email reports for both listing and tax records — all in one place.

Are Your Clients Seeing “Coming Soon” Listings?

We introduced Coming Soon Listing Status this past November. This status in Matrix allows you to pre-market your listing through the MLS for a limited time until it is ready for showings.

If you send your clients Auto-Emails in NorthstarMLS Matrix, they will not receive Coming Soon listings in their Client Portal unless you select that Status in your search criteria. You might want to update any Auto-Emails you created before November if you want to include Coming Soon’s.

Some Stats
Since its release, over 600 listings entered in NorthstarMLS Matrix were listed as Coming Soon with an average length of seven days in the status before being moved to Active.

Before you set a listing to Coming Soon Status, please ensure you are educated on how it works and its proper use. We have these materials to help you:

You can also watch the quick video below to see how it works!
