5 Things You Didn’t Know About

August 31, 2011  |  by Kerry

How much do you know about HomesDatabase and what it can do for you?  Here are 5 things you may not know.

Add your Agent Photo

You can upload your agent photo to display with your listings on, and in the Agent Search. Just as listings with photos get more attention, agents with photos get more attention. You can easily upload your agent photo by logging into, clicking on My Account, and then clicking on “Upload your headshot to”.

Make Sure Your Contact Information is Up to Date so Consumers Can Reach You

Just as listings with minimal information don’t get much interest, agents who don’t have complete or up to date contact information are going to miss opportunities to attract attention from consumers. Log in to, click on My Account, then Account Changes, and then Change My Contact Information. Make sure that you have a phone number in the Agent Office Phone field – this is the number that is displayed on  Also make sure your Public Email Address and Website are up to date. This will allow consumers to email you through and click through to your website. This video shows how easy it is to update your contact information.

Add to your Email Address Book to Make Sure You Receive Leads from! is designed to encourage consumers to contact MRIS agents, and the new version of HomesDatabase has even more lead generation options: Request Information, Schedule a Viewing, and options to email the agent directly.

    just wondering HOW one can "have reports emailed to you each month that show the activity for your listings on" (likely a really dumb question, but I am unabashed) – thanks

  4. Patricia says:

    Is this a free benefit to to us as MRIS members?

  5. MRIS_Kerry says:

    Hi Patricia, and the ListHub reports are included with your MRIS membership, there is no additional cost for these services.

    Thank you for the information. I just updated my information. Question: On the report can we get the break down by listing?

  7. Hope that I am a single incident here: I uploaded my photo a while ago and I could see it in MRIS, yet, I could never see it in my Homesdatabase profile. I tried again to upload a new photo, and still no luck. Can you help? Thank you.
