The hotsheet search gives you listing results of what is new and/or the latest changes in the RAE’s MLS® System inventory for your particular search parameters. Similar to the Market Monitor but the Hotsheet Search allows you to include additional search criteria such as date(s), status, class, price and more. The Hotsheet Report Spreadsheet is designed to give you information about the listing and, if any, Hotsheet remarks made by the listing agent of an existing listing that has changed.
The Hotsheet search screen is set up with a preset template of fields and date ranges for you to fill out. You can also save a default template of field values for yourself based on your preferences. For instance, the date range default is set to look back 7 days.
Below is the typical search screen used for a Hotsheet Search.
To view new results since the last time you ran this search, select From Last Run Date, Paragon remembers the last time you ran this search and gives it a time/date stamp. Then you get results from that date until the next time you click Auto-Hotsheet in Search.
Hotsheet Search Results
Once you have your search criteria loaded, click Search to get results. The default report is the Hotsheet Spreadsheet. It is a type of spreadsheet designed to give you the listings but also any other special comments made by Paragon or by the listing agent.
You can change to other reports/spreadsheets in Reports.
NOTE: It is possible that a listing could show up more than once in a Hotsheet Spreadsheet. It depends on what changes were made to the listing and what changes or “triggers” used that make it a listing a “HOT” listing.
The idea of a Hotsheet Search and Report is to quickly find the latest inventory that is new, back on the market, price changes, status changes, etc. that is a “Hot” in your particular market.
