Listing Modification Through Matrix Mobile

You may now use Matrix Mobile to modify your listings!  You do not have all of the options that are available through the full version of Matrix, but you are able to change the price, edit your Remarks section, and change the status of your listing.  For all other listing modification needs, such as photos, tours/open houses, or modifying specific fields, you will need to log into the full version of Matrix.

Homesnap University

The Homesnap University page is an excellent resource for learning about many of the features of the app.  It is a repository for short, topic-specific tutorial videos, pre-recorded webinars and printable materials designed to help you get the most out of Homesnap.


If you are on your mobile device, go to the Me menu option in the bottom right of Homesnap, then scroll down and tap on Homesnap Pro University; if you are on your laptop/desktop, go to https://www.homesnap.com/university/cmls
The video tutorials, none of which is more than 7 minutes long (the majority are actually between 2-3 minutes), allow you to get immediate help or clarification about a specific feature of the program.  You may watch them whenever you like, and as many times as you need.  Tip: after you select the video you want to watch, click/tap on the icon with four arrows toward the bottom right of the video (to the left of the word Vimeo {or the fancy V, if you are on a mobile device}) to view it in full screen mode.  To get out of full screen, just hit the Esc key on your keyboard {or tap the icon with the four arrows once more}.

GFC and CTMLS are working on a Merger

The GFC CMLS and CTMLS are looking to merge our two organizations to enhance the MLS experience for our combined 17,000 Realtors, as well as their respective clients and consumers.  
 
How does this impact you and your agents?
 
If you belong to both MLSs, you will no longer have to pay two sets of MLS dues
Your MLS fee of $26 a month will remain unchanged
The service and support you receive will continue with expanded service hours
You will have access to all the listings from both MLSs
In border towns where you could not see all available listings because some listings were on one MLS and some were on the other, you will now be able to get all available listings in one search 
 
How does this impact your clients and consumers in general?
You can now send your clients one set of search results that includes 100% of the inventory
Consumers will see a comprehensive set of MLS data on broker, agent and third-party sites without duplication
 
Register to attend one of the five sessions next week to hear all about it.
   
Space is filling up fast:  Click here to register to attend one of the sessions.

Listing Cancellation Policy

This change is now implemented on the Matrix system.  If a list agent sends a Status Change form to the CMLS office for us to Cancel a listing, the form MUST be signed by the Broker or Office Manager.  We can no longer process a Cancellation based on the List Agent's signature.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Just a reminder- as of Monday, January 9, 2017, the only people who will be able to cancel listings on the GFC CMLS will be the list office’s designated realtor, manager or administrative personnel.  
 
Please contact the CMLS if you have any questions.
 
Thank you.
