Download the App
If you’re not already using the Homesnap Pro app and would like to give it a try, head over to the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device and download it. Through the Broker Public Portal initiative, your clients can download and use the app, too!

We are proud to announce that the consumer version of Homesnap, Powered by the Broker Public Portal, is now available to buyers and sellers who are now going to national real estate portals.

The Broker Public Portal (BPP) initiative grew out of a movement among brokers across the country to develop an industry-controlled real estate search experience for consumers.

The idea was to leverage the relationship between brokers and their agents with the MLS where they list and sell property so that agents could deliver the highest quality listing information directly to buyers and sellers.

NorthstarMLS was at the forefront of this national collaboration between brokers and MLS’s.

Homesnap is the business and technology partner chosen by the Broker Public Portal Board of Managers to realize its goal of providing agents with an alternative to the big portals. It is a Mobile-first solution that has already achieved extraordinary adoption on a national basis both by agents who can engage with their clients and prospects using Homesnap Pro and directly by consumers who have made Homesnap the #1 rated real estate app in the App store.

You won’t find any advertising on the app, nor will you be sold premium placement or zip codes. This is a “your listing – your lead” service that is provided to you as a benefit from your MLS.

Buyers and sellers will see all the homes for sale from every real estate company in our markets updated at the same frequency as IDX and with the same levels of quality and accuracy that are the hallmarks of MLS.

We believe that Homesnap, Powered by Broker Public Portal, will be especially appreciated by consumers for its superior content and direct connection to you, the real estate professional best able to help them with their buying and selling needs.

Do you use social media to capture leads in your market? Homesnap just launched a valuable new marketing tool for agents: automated Facebook video ads. These personalized dynamic ads target specific zip codes so you can effectively engage potential clients in your farm area.

Top features include:
• Automatically updated weekly
• One-click monthly budgeting
• Instagram add-on
• Optimized lead page included
• Instant lead routing
• 24/7 reporting

Facebook Video Ads are not a core service — prices start at $3 per day with a minimum of $90 per month needed to be spent. The more money spent, the more the ZIP Code will be saturated. When building the video ad, you’ll be able to toggle back and forth the spend amount to see the increase or decrease of clicks and views for the video ad.

It takes less than 5 minutes to customize and set up a campaign, and then Homesnap takes care of the rest from there! Click here to browse the ads they created for you.

Homesnap, one of NorthstarMLS’s mobile solutions, recently released several search enhancements for its mobile app.

  • Homesnap now tallies local listings and uses clusters to show you how many homes are for sale in an area. You can see individual listings by tapping on a cluster circle or zooming in.
  • The main map in Homesnap now shows property lines – you don’t have to click into the individual listings to view property boundaries.
  • The list view of homes in Homesnap is now more dynamic. Swipe right on a home’s main image to message, share or favorite it, or swipe left to scroll through all available photos.
  • It’s now even easier to look at local schools in the map view or through the search function. Then you can narrow your home searches to a particular school attendance zone and filter further by home-specific details.
  • Search for open houses scheduled in the area you’re interested in. They will appear on the map view as purple pins with an orange dot. To see them, click “Filter,” then change the status to “Agent Open” and select a date.

The video below highlights these enhancements:

Is Facebook an important marketing tool for you, or one you want to use more effectively?

Homesnap lets users pull the pictures and information about their listings directly into a platform that automatically creates an ad perfectly designed for Facebook’s dimensions and layout. You’ll need to login to Homesnap.com from a computer (not the Homsnap Pro app on your mobile device) and then click the Sign In link in the top right of the page (if you’re not already logged in). Then scroll to the bottom of the page until you see three rows of options: Home Shoppers, Real Estate Agents and About Homesnap — in the row, Real Estate Agents, you’ll find the Facebook Ads link. Click on it.

There you will see your current listings and recent transactions using the same data Homesnap pulls from the NorthstarMLS database. From that page, you can place an order for an ad promoting your active listings or your recent sales. The best part? You don’t have to input any listing data or mess around with uploading and re-sizing photos. Homesnap does all that for you.

Facebook Ads are not free — prices start at $49, and increase depending on the target number of views and clicks you want.

The Homesnap Pro app search now covers rentals. You can search for rentals that have an open house scheduled, are pending or are currently rented. You can also use Homesnap Pro’s unified property history to see the history of any rental, including sales. Homesnap provides the detailed information your clients want, including security deposit and whether pets or smoking are allowed. Homesnap also features rent estimates, rent history and investor score for over 90 million homes, so you can see what a home would rent for. Rentals search is an in-app feature only at this point. Rental search on the web will be available in a few months. However, if an agent shares a rental listing with a client, that client will be able to view the rental listing page on the web.

Watch the video below for more information about searching for rentals with the Homesnap Pro app.
