If you want to search multiple statuses or areas, use a Saved Search for each. For example, if you would like to search for Expired listings in Arcadia and Active listings in Alhambra, you can create one Saved Search called “Arcadia Expired Listings” and a second one called “Alhambra Active Listings.” (View the Saved Search Quick Reference Guide for more information).<br />
<br />
If you want to put both the Arcadia Expired and Alhambra Active listings in to a single report, run each search, add selected listings from the results to your Cart, and use those as the basis for your CMA or other reports. (For information on adding results to your cart go to: <a href="http://66.151.72.168/DispArticle.cfm?ARTICLE_ID=16146" title="null">http://66.151.72.168/DispArticle.cfm?ARTICLE_ID=16146</a>).<br />

<strong>Question &amp; Answer:<br />
<br />
Q. What is the difference between a Hot Sheet and a Hot Search?</strong><br />
A. Hot Searches are specially designed Hot Sheets. They have all the functionality of a Hot Sheet, but are organized a little differently. In fact, having the Hot Search area on the Home Tab is like having 10 additional Hot Sheets.<br />
<br />
<strong><br />
Q. When do I use a Hot Sheet?</strong><br />
A. A Hot Sheet is used to display a quick market update of the area an agent most frequently works or other area/city of interest. Once an agent customizes their hot sheet and sets its criteria for an area, one or more statuses or all status activity in that area can be shown. (See How to Customize a Residential Hot Sheet Quick Reference Guide).<br />
<br />
Example Usage of a Hot Sheet: An agent wants to see newly active or expired listings within a designated farm area.<br />
<br />
<br />
<strong>Q. When do I use a Hot Search?</strong><br />
A. Hot Searches allow easy and quick access to market updates of an agents top-ten Saved Searches from the Home Tab within MRMLS Matrix.<br />
<br />
Example Usage of a Hot Search: An agent has a client who is looking in a specific area for newly active listings within a price range and with a minimum number of bedrooms, bathrooms etc. The agent can set up a Hot Sheet to monitor the daily activity of properties that match their criteria.<br />
<br />
<br />
<strong>Q. What is the difference between a Hot Search and a Saved Search?</strong><br />
A. Hot Searches are Saved Searches that appear on and can be accessed from the Home Tab from within MRMLS Matrix. (For information on how add a Save Search to the Home Tab, see the How to Save Hot Searches Quick Reference Guide).

Lockbox Exchange Coming Soon

<img width='60' height='110' style="float: left; border: 0px; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" src="http://blog.srcar.org/uploads/lockbox.thumb.jpg" alt="" /><br />
Supra will be conducting a Lockbox Exchange during the first full week in February (exact date and location were not available at press time). What this means is that if you have an AEII Lockbox (the old ones), you will be responsible for bringing it in during this exchange period and trading it for a new IBox. It will be a one for one exchange. This exchange will apply to all AEII Lockboxes whether you own them or you lease them from the Association.<br />
<br />
Start checking your lockbox inventory. Make sure that if you have any of the AEII Lockboxes that they are registered in your name. If you aren’t sure, we have created a <a href="http://www.srcar.org/lockbox_exchange_form.asp">form</a> in which you can confirm that the boxes you are currently using are in your name. Please visit the Association’s website at <a href="http://www.srcar.org/">www.srcar.org</a> and click onto the link in the middle of the home page where it says "Lockbox Exchange – Check to see if you qualify." Complete the form as indicated including the serial numbers of the boxes. Once you submit this form, it will be emailed to the Association and we will confirm the information in advance for you. You will receive a confirmation from us in 1 to 2 business days. <br />
<br />
If you have purchased AEII boxes from another agent, please make sure that you notify the Association office so that your records will be current. In the event that you did not notify the Association of a transfer, those boxes will show under the previous owner’s name and you may not be able to exchange them.<br />
<br />
In order to participate in the exchange, you must be able to bring your AEII boxes in so that you may receive a new IBox in return. Unfortunately, if you can not bring in the box, we will be unable to exchange it for a new one.<br />
<br />
This lockbox exchange is taking place throughout the Associations affiliated with MRMLS. Once the exchange has been completed, AEII boxes will no longer be used throughout MRMLS.<br />
<br />
While more details will be forthcoming, the Southwest Riverside County Association of REALTORS® wanted you to have as much time as possible to prepare.<br />
<br />
Remember, look for more details in the coming weeks and be prepared for the AEII Lockbox Exchange coming in February 2007.
