How do you find them? Run a search in any property type. Select a listing(s) from your search results. Click the Print button on the Actions button bar at the bottom of your search results. Scroll down the list of reports to below the line “Reports below print as PDF only”. Click to select a report and then, depending on your preference, click either the Print to PDF or Email PDF button.

Quick CMA
This single line per property report gives you a quick comparison of listings for some of the most common data fields, grouped by Status. Also averages by Status and overall. More info on the Quick CMA here.

1-Page Photo Fliers
Generate a 1-page photo flier for houses, condos or townhomes. This report includes a photo, details and description of the listing — ideal for showings or to hand out at open houses.

1-Page & 1/2-Page Showing Reports
Showing Reports (both agent and client versions) feature the most important property details, photo, and space for the client to record their feedback. Email or print for your clients before the day’s showing appointments. It will help them keep track of every listing they see, and then you can easily record the feedback in BookAShowing.
