ShowingTime's New Waitlist Feature
Updated: May 12
It’s a common occurrence in today’s low inventory, high demand market: a listing goes on the market, followed immediately by a flurry of showing activity. Thankfully, the new Waitlist feature from ShowingTime can help.
Launching July 27 - the Waitlist option enables agents to be notified immediately when an appointment time becomes available. You can let your buyers know that if another buyer’s agent cancels their appointment, there still might be an opportunity to take them to see the listing.
How it Works
When scheduling a showing, if you are having trouble finding an available time you can choose to join the waitlist. Simply tap or click the Join Waitlist button to learn how the process works, review and update your mobile number if needed, and then select Agree and Join Waitlist.
Notifications are sent simultaneously to all agents who have joined that listing’s waitlist, so it’s important to respond quickly as open slots are filled on a first come, first served basis. If you’ve joined several waitlists, not to worry: the notification will show you the specific listing, the date and time that is now available and a link to book an appointment.
If the time slot has already been claimed by another agent – remember, it’s whoever acts the quickest – you can still select a different time if you see one that’s available. Also, if your buyer is no longer interested in a particular property, you can tap Leave Waitlist.
