Before the busy summer season comes to a close, we wanted to ensure agents are aware of the recent (and ongoing!) updates being made to Out East Agent Tools. Here are a few new features to keep in mind:
Rental Prices for 2020
Did you know agents are already starting to add prices to listings for 2020? Out East Agent Tools now provides an easy way to add this information now, so early birds can begin dreaming about their plans for summer 2020 in the Hamptons.
Advertised Monthly Rental Price
In the Hamptons, renters are searching for seasonal rentals, short-term rentals, and long-term rentals, all of which can have different rental prices. As a Hamptons-only platform, Out East is tailored for this market. On Zillow, however, only a single monthly rental rate can be displayed.
The “Advertised Monthly Rental Price” included in Out East Agent Tools allows agents to enter the monthly price that will be displayed on Zillow and our other national brands. Learn more about how to enter the Advertised Monthly Rental Price.
Keep Track of Notifications
It’s important for agents to have the ability to track edits to listings, such as price changes, listing changes, and exclusivity changes. With the new “Notifications” page in Out East Agent Tools, agents can now see a chronological list of these changes all in one place. When looking at the left-hand menu, agents can simply click “Notifications” and they’ll see a log of recent activity and changes. In our user research, we learned this is also helpful for admins and office managers, providing an easy way to monitor activity across agents and listings.
We Want To Hear From You
