What’s VOW? It’s a Virtual Office Website, a new feature Realtors can give their clients.
According to TREB, “A VOW service allows REALTORS® to offer consumers a secure password-protected website to search MLS® listing data, with the benefit of a REALTOR® Member’s knowledge and accountability, without compromising MLS® accuracy or consumers’ privacy rights.”
Therefore my clients would have the ability to access information fields of much richer substance than that seen on REALTOR.ca. This feature is going to make some my clients very happy. They could use access to this additional information to determine preferences and “must haves” to aid in their home buying and selling decisions.
According to the VOW wikipedia, a VOW allows the public to:
- provide contact information
- agree to become a bona fide customer / client
- get a password protected private account
- describe property interest(s)
- and then conduct searches of all available MLS properties in a certain area.
I am excited to see this in action. When it rolls out, I will release an update.
What do you think? Is this good for Realtors and their clients? Leave me a comment and let’s discuss.
