Top Producer's Sold Alert Lets Agents Promptly Tell Potential Sellers of Neighborhood Home Sales
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To help real estate agents stay on top of homes sold, Top Producer® Systems, a leading developer of media and technology solutions for real estate professionals operated by Move, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOVE), today introduced Sold Alert, a tool that helps agents promptly notify potential sellers of a home sale near their property.
As part of Top Producer's Market Snapshot® service, Sold Alert generates notifications within minutes of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) reporting a home sale as closed. Potential sellers often want opinions on pricing and other market advice well in advance of listing their home for sale. Sold Alert enables agents to improve the dialogue with potential sellers by providing very timely and pertinent pricing information regarding sold homes.
"We anticipate Sold Alert will add substantially to the value of Market Snapshot, because it gives agents the opportunity to be first in delivering important neighborhood home sale news and to have a more informed conversation with potential sellers about local home values," said Michael Kane, Move's senior vice president of software as a service (SaaS) businesses. "Having a Sold Alert pop up can be the trigger a real estate agent needs to contact a prospective home seller and, if the time is right, list their home."
In addition to the new Sold Alert tool, Market Snapshot provides agents up-to-date reports of sales prices, average market time, and home transaction activity near a client's home.
