ShowingTime now available at GEPAR

ShowingTime is now available for GEPAR MLS members. This software will allow you to schedule showings for your buyers, approve showings, and manage showing feedback for your own listings.  Here are some things you can do to get setup today if you wish to participate.

Get Training – An online webinar is still available on March 2. Click here to register. If you would prefer to watch a previously recorded training click here. This video will give you the basics in 30 minutes.    Additional training videos are found in your ShowingTime Dashboard.

Setup your ShowingTime profile – Whether you are a broker or an appraiser, setting up the default appointment type and length saves you time while scheduling showings and you prefer to be notified when an agent or a listing contact messages you through ShowingTimes messaging system.   You can also change the ShowingTime type for each of your listings (Go and Show, Appointment Required).

Get the mobile app – Download the free ShowingTime app to manage your showings directly from your smartphone. Available for Android and iPhone users, this app allows you to get push notifications directly to your phone for ShowingTime updates.

Share with your seller – Once you start to receive ShowingTime feedback on your listings you may want to share the information with your sellers (who can also be included in the ShowingTime feedback updates).   Here is a handy guide you can print and share with your sellers.

Listing Tip: You can encourage buyer’s agents to schedule showings via ShowingTime with a newly added MLS option. A new Showing Instruction option is now available on Listing Input that will allow you to display “Schedule Via ShowingTime” on your listings. The video clip below shows how this is done.
