Setting up your listings in advance can save you time, energy, and improve productivity. How?
By entering all the information once, you can eliminate several steps in the showing process. You'll no longer need to type out things like ''Off lights. Leave card. Don't let the cat out. Lockbox is on the left of the mailbox.'' each time you confirm a showing. Better yet, you can even auto-confirm showings, so that all that information sends automatically! Here's how.
To access your showing settings, go to the main menu of your Touchbase app, and click My Listings.
Choose the listing you want to modify and click on Showing settings.
Under Automatic note sent with confirmation, enter all the information that you would normally type out each time someone requests to show your property.
You can then enter the lockbox code if applicable.
This option is great for properties with families, or who simply want to have a certain amount of time to prepare for each visit. You can choose a delay (up to 48 hours) that must be respected when requesting to show your property.
For example, if you choose a 24-hour delay, and it is 5:00 p.m., the buyer agent would have to request to show any time after 5 p.m. the following day. If the buyer agent selects a time that is less than 24 hours into the future, they will not be able to send the request until they modify the requested time. In this way, you can guarantee that there are no last-minute showings that will displease your seller.
Use the pulldown selector to limit the number of showings that you want to happen at the same time. If you put a limit, once that number of showings is requested for that time slot, buyer agents will have to choose a different time when sending a showing request.
Use the pulldown selector to set the maximum length that showings can be for this listing. Buyer agents can request shorter showings, but they won't be able to request longer showings.
