Check out this important article about how Broker Public Portal with Homesnap continues to deliver a better alternative for consumers than third party advertising portals. Our own NorthstarMLS CEO John Mosey is quoted.
As a real estate professional, you how important it is to keep your prospecting pipeline full and to have the right tools to create effective campaigns. We recently showed you how to print mailing labels for a campaign from a public records and listing search with Matrix 360.
With RPR’s new mailing labels feature (one of the most frequently requested features), you now have another simple way to market a new listing, just sold properties, or to promote your brand.
Watch the recorded webinar below for a walk through on how to use RPR to generate mailing labels to your targeted market.
NorthstarMLS has released some additional options for existing data fields, and several new fields. These changes are detailed below. These are all improvements and accommodations for continued expansion of our coverage area. These changes are available now in our Add/Edit system and will show on the Single Family Residential input forms (in Instanet Transaction Desk) later today, with the other property types to follow next week.
Power Company: This is a new, optional field where you can select the power company that provides service to the property. This is particularly important in greater Minnesota where there are multiple options that can affect the costs for the owner. If you need to select a Power Company that is not in the list, select "Other" and notify our Help Desk of the missing Power Company at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In a recent Matrix 360 video tip, we showed you how the Parcel Map tab right within the full property display in Matrix 360 works. You can also use the new Flood Map tab to show your client precisely where the property is, relative to flood zones, as well as other FEMA Flood Zone data.
Our quick video below shows you how it works. Give it a view!
We recently showed you how to print mailing labels from a public records search directly within Matrix 360. Today, we show you how you can also get mailing labels for your MLS listings search results. (Or maybe you want an easier way to view the public tax records for your listing search results.) Our quick 90-second video below shows you how. Give it a view!
Previously, the default display showed all of your listings, sorted by most "Recently Edited." But because of slow performance issues caused by loading all listings for every user every session, (especially for office brokers that are assigned to several offices and manage many listings), we changed the default to show only those listings edited in the "Past 30 Days". This initial sort makes the system perform faster for all.
But the option to view all of your listings sorted by most "Recently Edited" is still available. When you log in, click "Past 30 Days" on the top Sort Menu and switch to "Recently Edited" (or any of the other sort options in the list).
The animation below shows you the list of sort options, including the new default "Past 30 Days" (click it to open a larger version in a new browser window).
