Mobile MLS Search Has Arrived

7/9/2012 – The ARMLS APP, which incorporates Goomzee, has now been published: Check it out.

Goomzee Mobile MLS gives ARMLS Subscribers FREE access to ARMLS listings on any web-enabled mobile device (Smartphones, iPad, tablets, etc) as a member benefit.  Quick searches and Advanced searches operate similarly to flexmls but Goomzee takes it one step further with Location searches. Location searches use your location to show listings nearby. Be sure to check out the Quick Start Guide or follow the instructions below to access Goomzee:

1. Visit http://armls.goomzee.com or scan the QR Code on your mobile device.
2. Use your flexmls Agent ID. Make sure your device isn’t auto-capitalizing your Agent ID as capital letters matter in Goomzee. So if your ID is xx0123, make sure your device doesn’t capitalize it to Xx0123.
3. Use your flexmls password, tap or click “Login”.
4. Enjoy! Be sure to check out the Quick Start Guide.

What “Do Not Contact” Means

Some Subscribers have noticed that the “Unsubscribe” link in ARMLS email messages now reads “Manage Your Subscription” (see screen capture here). These new preferences control which messages you receive from the ARMLS. With these new features, questions have been raised about the “Do Not Contact” option. If a Subscriber checks the Do Not Contact box, that Subscriber will NEVER receive email messages from ARMLS, even billing emails.

We encourage Subscribers to opt-out of messages as they like but to refrain from selecting Do Not Contact as vital information will no longer be delivered.

Real Estate Space Infographic

There are a lot of players in the real estate game in the Valley. The field is riddled with initialisms: NAR, ADRE, AAR, ARMLS, PAR, WeMAR, SAAR, and SEVRAR to name a few. We’ve designed an infographic to sort out all the major entities from the the viewpoint of a new Licensee. The way ARMLS fits into the real estate space is often misunderstood.

Goodbye Compliance Department

Hello, Data Integrity Department. The ARMLS Compliance Department is now the Data Integrity Department. Expect more latitude and less attitude as we roll out changes in the upcoming weeks and months. The change has already been reflected on ARMLS.com and featured in the latest ARMLS This Week video:

Associated Press Misquote of ARMLS Data

Yesterday, two writers from the Associated Press put out a story that said that 70% of the homes in Phoenix are at risk of foreclosures. By the end of the day the story had gone viral on the Internet and was picked up by multiple large media, including the Wall Street Journal.  Of course, the information is flat out wrong, and unfortunately, it was attributed to ARMLS. We are reaching out to the original writers and others who re-circulated it to get the information corrected.

The statement was a result of the writers’ misinterpretation of the correct information put out in the February issue of STAT.  In that issue we stated that distressed properties accounted for 70.2% of total sales.

ARMLS is reaching out to our Subscribers to make sure they understand the error, and do not inadvertently re-circulate the wrong information in their blogs and on their social media platforms. Click here to read the February issue of STAT.
