Access details have not been provided for this listing yet
Have you noticed this message in ShowingTime's showing request emails you receive for your listings? If so, that means your listing is missing important access information and instructions. When instructions aren’t entered in ShowingTime for the MLS, showing agents won’t have the information they need to actually access and show the property. Don’t let this prevent agents from seeing your listings and enter showing instructions today! LEARN HOW HERE.
Don't forget to add showing instructions!
As a member of Space Coast Association of REALTORS®, agents can use ShowingTime for the MLS to easily schedule showings on you listings, 24/7. While these requests can easily be confirmed with a click or tap of a button, showing agents still need instructions on how they will be given access so they can actually show the property. Adding showing instructions in ShowingTime ensures showing agents receive confirmation emails with access instructions—rather than a blank confirmation with no instructions—so they don’t have any problems getting access to show the home.
