Listing Agent Accompanied Showings
"Accompanied Showings," a recently released feature in Realcomp’s ShowingTime™ application, was designed for listing agents who prefer to accompany buyer's agents when showing their listings.
This feature helps resolve scheduling conflicts between agents before informing sellers of showing requests. It gives the listing agent a way to let sellers know a showing has been requested on their property once it’s approved by the listing agent. This allows agents to determine the best time to fit a showing into their schedule and keep the potential back-and-forth communications away from sellers.
The listing agent will be able to take action on the appointment request in advance of the owner or occupant seeing the request.
You can configure this on each listing by turning on the "Is this an agent accompanied showing?"
Here are some other interesting features:
- The listing agent can choose to allow the contact to be first in line to approve these requests, or to wait until the agent is sure the showing will fit into their schedule.
- Both the approval by the listing agent and the owner will be tracked
- If the listing agent does not approve the request, the seller or occupant will not be notified.
- While sellers or occupants are required for accompanied showings, the order of the calls is clearly identified on the listing worksheet.
