A third popular eDATA feature sets you free from the office

We’ve been highlighting the most popular and most used features of the eDATA software included with eKEY Professional Service for your smartphone or PDA. In our November issue, we reviewed the most popular—Address Search. In December, we demonstrated how you can view showing details right on your eKEY device. The third most popular eDATA feature, Saved Searches, allows you to think, “every place is my office.” You’ll see that it’s labeled CLIENTS on the eDATA menu. Agents who make the most of Saved Searches have noted two important uses-one for following buyer needs and one for watching certain types of properties within their market area. To follow your buyers: Create a simple profile for each buyer, including type of property, price range, area, and the minimum number of bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also a note page to allow you to jot down basic information about each buyer, such as name of lender, children’s names, or special features they want or need. Once you’ve saved the profile, you can check on available properties matching the buyer’s needs simply by tapping the search button. You will want to set the profiles to sort first by “changes in the last three days” so you can view listings on the hot sheet. Those appear in bold with a red stripe telling you what the change has been, such as new listing, or reduction in price. To follow property types: Create a profile for the type of property you want to follow and name the profile. For example, if you were watching for starter homes on the east side of town, you might name your profile “Starters East.” Or if you were watching million-plus properties, you might name the profile “Million Plus. In either instance, you can stay on top of your business even if you are out of town, especially if you have a smartphone. A quick tap on the search button for each profile and you’ll be able to tell the Jenkins family that the price on the property on Rosemont has been reduced, or let the Andersons know about the new five-bedroom listing in the North Hills area. No one needs to know that you are on the golf course, or calling from under your beach umbrella. To see how the Saved Searches feature works, we invite you to try the self-paced eDATA demonstration we have added. You can start the demo by clicking eDATA demo in the left margin of this Hot Sheet, or you can click here. Click on Saved Searches, and then when you’ve finished, you can review the Address Search and Showings features, too! We hope you find it helpful .
