If you work in real estate, you are most likely using an MLS system.
Great news! With Flipsnack you can create MLS-compatible templates and connect them with your MLS database, if you're using an API and your API is connected to Flipsnack.
This article is not focused on the technical aspects of the integration. That is something that you can discuss with your sales agent and later with our technical team.
For now, let's focus on the outcome of such integration and how it can help your team of real estate agents design branded real estate brochures, based on your company's smart templates.
How can your real-estate business benefit from integrating your MLS database with Flipsnack?
Real estate agents can quickly apply the property information to the templates you’ve created, with the click of a button.
Custom presentations for each property, based on a single template. Instead of creating a new brochure from scratch for each listing, agents will simply use the template and not have to redesign brochures again and again.
The integration can be customised according to your needs and to the capabilities of the API.
All property updates (properties sold, removed, new listings) made in the MLS will automatically be available in the Flipsnack dashboard.
Maintain brand consistency by using our template locking feature. As an admin, you can choose which elements you want to lock, and they remain in the same position and in their original format. As an agent, you will be able to use the templates, but without making any changes to the design. The only element you can change is the data associated with each property.
Here’s a step by step guide on how the MLS integration could work for your agents
This information applies to real estate agents, and it explains how agents will be able to use the integration on a smart MLS-compatible template, to create a listing presentation fast.
