Use Showing time, have it on my phone, I like it. It would work better if agents figured out how to use it effectively.

Our MLS offers ShowingTime as a membership tool (recently in the last few years) but we apparently are all set in our old ways of just calling the sellers direct to make an appointment that hardly anybody uses it. -Kasey

I used (Showing Time, I think) a few years ago. It was really good for me. The most significant time I showed one particular home over 100 times. The Seller did not believe me. I showed him the report to prove it. This home also was listed as "Listing Agent must accompany" and the home was quite a distance away for me and had high voltage power lines running across the lot.

Most of my listings now are vacant land, so I do not need this service now.

Yes, I use CSS.  There's a feature showing how many showings on an average for certain area and I can use it to compare with my listing.  Having said that, I haven'sed used that feature for a very long time as listings are sold within a day or two in my area, sometimes hours.

Showing time is good, but i think there should be a way (Maybe there is) to adjsut their request or respond with more than yes or no.  Lets say they ask for showing tomoro at 2pm - I can only say yes or no,  2pm is not aviable, but 3PM is.  I haven' seen a way to type this in the response...

My company uses ShowingTime.  It has too many great features to list.  I love that you can set up a tour or appointment online at any time of the day or night, can start to make a (fake) appointment to see what time slots are available (then cancel), can see which competitive listings are being shown--and by whom, ask for feedback, have a feedback or showing report for your own use or to show the seller, and much more.  My only criticism is that when agents call to make an appointment, sometimes the folks that answer the calls goof things up.

Oh, and I love that I (or my sellers) can approve appointments, or make them, on the fly from our phones.

Not offered out here and I'm NOT a fan of it.  The one agent who does (a "Hope you sell" agent none the less!) it was a pain in the ass to get an apointment set.  Would much rather talk to the agent than an answering service.  Unprofessional in my book!

ShowingTime and YES, I absolutely use it to the max, Fred! Buyers love having the tours texted to them or they'll use one of my iPads to view it. Notifying the sellers when you've left is also one of the perks that I LOVE - especially having so many sellers who work from home.
