Homesnap MLS Newsletter: March 2019

Homesnap MLS Newsletter: March 2019

Welcome to the Homesnap MLS newsletter — your go-to resource to get the inside scoop on what’s happening at Homesnap. Here you’ll find updates on new features that your members will love, ways in which Homesnap can support your MLS, Homesnap Pro user testimonials, and the latest news about Homesnap and the Broker Public Portal.


We’re excited to announce our newest feature: Homesnap Stories! With Homesnap Stories, agents can add unique, engaging marketing content right into their active listings through the Homesnap Pro app.

Think of all the selling points about a home that are tough to get across in a photo. Now, agents can take their own photos and videos — enhancing  them with stickers, text, emojis and music — and add them directly to their Homesnap listing.
