We recently shared some tips on how to make good use of time when your real estate business slows down a bit. Now we’re back with five more helpful suggestions.

1. Customize your Flexmls toolbar so that the items you use regularly are easy to access.

2. Name your listing photos. Most photo files default to a naming convention that does not at all describe the image. Naming the photos makes it easy for viewers to know exactly what they are looking at. This is especially helpful if there are a lot of images. You can either name the photo files prior to adding them to Flexmls or edit the name afterwards by clicking on the pencil icon located on the top right corner of each image.

3. Create custom map overlays in Flexmls. Now is a terrific time to build a library of custom overlays, which can help you easily search specific geographic areas.

4. Customize your ShowingTime feedback forms. Build a library of feedback forms so they’re ready to send to showing agents.

5. Brush up on the ARMLS rules by taking our online course. Don’t forget we have classes and webinars that cover a wide range of topics.

No matter what you choose, we have plenty of ways to keep you busy!
