NEW Feature:
Virtual Open Houses
Following in step with MLS’s across the country, due to the COVID-19, effective March 30th, MCRTC is suspending all in-person open houses in the MLS.  

In light of this decision we are happy to announce the implementation of a brand new tool that is now up and running so your business won’t skip a beat and everyone’s health and safety can be protected.  

Welcome to the new Virtual Open House tool in the MLS where you can now schedule your Open Houses through any online virtual service. This feature will allow you to host an open house and/or video tour using your preferred video provider, while still maintaining your social distance. Simply schedule the date and time of your tour in Matrix and viewers will be able to tune in!
How Do I Add a Virtual Open House to my listing?
  • Login to Matrix and go to the Input screen.
  • Select the listing you wish to add an open house for.
  • On the Open House Input form, select "Virtual Public" or "Virtual Broker-Only" from the Open House Type dropdown.
  • Add additional details as you normally would and enter the URL where the Virtual Open House will be streamed under Virtual Open House URL.
  • After setting up your Virtual Open House in Matrix, your Virtual Open House URL will be displayed with your listing so interested home buyers can make plans to attend ahead of time.
Understand Your Tools

Unlike virtual tours, which display interactive media to buyers when exploring a property, a virtual open house is a live streamed event that allows attendees to tune in and interact live from their personal devices. This interactive experience allows you to answer questions and personalize the Open House experience for your buyers.

Virtual Open Houses can be held on the platform of your choice, from teleconferencing platforms like Zoom or Skype to popular social networks like Facebook and Instagram Live.

Pro Tip: Want to get more out of your Virtual Open House? Record your session so that people can view the event long after its over!
