There is no one-size-fits-all solution for the unusual circumstances that occur in a real estate professional’s day-to-day business. Today’s agent must be proficient in the software tools he uses in order to obtain the information required by his clients. A buyer may want to know who owns a vacant piece of land that backs up to the property he is considering; an investor may want to know what homes will be sold at auction on the first Tuesday of the next month in a particular county; another client may want specific statistical information that is not available on any other report. This course is formatted uniquely to answer agents’ specific “how do I?” questions and to provide insight on creative ways to use the features covered in the Realist 101 class. Instruction is also provided to help agents use Realist data to promote their businesses and to stay abreast of market trends in a particular area, such as number or percentage of Foreclosures, current active listings, recently sold properties, pending sales and more.
Topics covered include:
• Creating and saving custom searches to retrieve specific information
• Searching for homes in Foreclosure
• Using the Realist Map to refine a search geographically
• How to create and save customized searches and results grids
• Using the Realist Map to refine a search geographically
• Exporting Realist data to spreadsheet software for further manipulation
• Using mapping tools to obtain market data and ownership information
