We are continuing the Eight things new users want to know about RPR Residential for new users series – we have highlighted 4 previous tools. Last time we covered Spot-On Property Pricing and How to Find the Right Neighborhood for your Buyers, and a month ago we discussed Searching Your Subject Property and Sizing Up the Property Details Page. These are straightforward “how-to’s” covering everything from simple searches, to gathering data on schools and neighborhoods, mapping, and our ever-popular RPR reports. Each article includes a breakdown of what you can expect from RPR and how to easily incorporate RPR tools and features into your everyday business operations.
RPR is a benefit of the National Association of REALTORS®, which means it’s already included in your annual dues.
