Breaking News: Sleeping In On the Weekend, Late Workday Lunches Reduce Market Times

Perhaps not surprisingly, our data shows that renters prefer to tour listings around their workday, during lunch and after work especially. Yet showing agents tend to schedule tours around their workday. To align better with renters, and in effect get more showings, our data indicates that you should be shifting your showing schedule just an hour later. In other words, the early bird may get the worm. But lest we forget, the second mouse gets the cheese. Don’t take our word for it. We’ll walk through the data in this blog post.

Effortless Listings: New Listing Default Settings Arrive, Bulk Update Exits Beta

Ever wish your computer would do what you want without you constantly looking over its shoulder? All this clicking and typing and remembering stuff. It’s a bit much. So we got to thinking and tinkering with ShowMojo. And we came up with an upgrade. We decided against a chip that enables you to control the Computer With Your Thoughts. Privacy was a concern, but we also wanted to free your mind, not control it. Enter: Listing Default Settings.

ShowMojo’s Lead Generation From Zillow and Zumper Just Got Supercharged

Let’s be honest. When it comes to lead syndication, there is a cool kids club. And if Zillow is the president, Zumper is the trusty sidekick — think Regina George’s right hand woman, Gretchen Wieners, from Mean Girls. Today, we’re proud to announce we’ve made inroads into this exclusive club. And no, it doesn’t mean You Wear Pink on Wednesdays (end Mean Girls references). It means you will receive direct invitations to Zillow’s and Zumper’s parties. Below, we’ll explain why that’s a big deal.

2024 Q1 Market Update: Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going

In the market updates we released for February, May, and September of 2023, we warned of an increasingly soft rental market. Now we’re in the thick of it. Yes, there are some locales that might be an exception. But, nationwide, the applicants-without-effort party has been over for some time. By now, most everybody knows that, so we’re not claiming to break new ground here. But we’re going to show you the details of what’s going on, what comes next, and how you should respond.

2023 Wrapped, ShowMojo Edition: A Recap of 2023’s Greatest Feature Releases

Ah, the beginning of the New Year. The leftovers are gone and dumpsters are full of cardboard. There’s a mix of ambitious resolutions and post-holiday blues in the air. We’re just past the time of year that music streaming companies like to roll out curations of all the data they’ve been tracking on you — Spotify Wrapped, and its copycats. But we’ve got a different kind of recap. A recap that you can use, rather than one that shames you for your questionable audio entertainment choices. It’s a recap of all the new features that came to ShowMojo in 2023.

The MojoLock G3 Is Dead. Long Live the MojoLock G4.

We had a parade, fireworks, fly-bys, and the fife and drum corps all lined up. Everything was ready, for mid-January. But we just sold our last MojoLock G3. Ever. And it’s not even Decorated Fur Tree Day. It doesn’t matter that the MojoLock G4s are busy slogging through the Drought-Ridden Panama Canal. There are enough air-shippable MojoLock G4s at hand. So we’re doing this MojoLock G4 announcement thing right here right now.

Open Beta: LIGHTNING FAST Listing Bulk Updates

At ShowMojo, one of our primary goals is to eliminate as much property management tedium as we can. But until today, there was no way around the Sisyphean task of updating listing settings. For instance, to add a custom message after a prospect confirms a showing, you’d need to make that update to each individual listing. One by one… slowly marching up the hill. Then your boss makes a change, or new listings come on the market… and the boulder rolls back down the hill. Maybe it’s not eternal damnation, but it sure feels like it. Consider this blog post your formal invitation to Elysium via The Bulk Update Open Beta.

MORE Chat Support! Now Available Until 5pm PST

We’ve tried to design ShowMojo to be as intuitive as possible. And we’ve reeled a digital forest full of info to build out a comprehensive knowledgebase. But that’s nothing like having additional assistance at hand right when you need it. That’s why we’ve extended our weekday chat support hours to start at 8am Eastern time and then end at 5pm Pacific time. ShowMojo support chat now covers the entire continental US (and Canadian) business day.

Spoiled for Choice: ShowMojo Launches Native Support for iCloud and CalDAV Calendars

In the leasing world, your calendar is often the heart of your workday. And the big tech companies (ahem, Google, Microsoft) want to cage your heart in their duopolistic shackles. Unfortunately, they’re pretty damn good at it. But with today’s announcement, we’re sighting our slingshots squarely on these Goliaths. ShowMojo now supports calendar integration with Apple iCloud and other CalDAV-based calendaring systems.
