Off Market Listing feature
Isn't it annoying when you cant display all of your current listings as a spreadsheet or on the OFI list generated via REX because the listing is incomplete or cant be put as a listing because its going to be an off market transaction?
Definitely be worth having the ability to categorise between, Listings, Off market & appraisals.
No doubt this feature would help a lot of buyers advocates and people who deal mainly with off market transactions and will be able to finally generate reports with absolutely every property sold through your business.
This is technically available / achievable within rex as it currently stands:
1. If you want csv’s of your data, you can choose to export your listings at any time regardless of publication status if you have rights to do so.
2. Listings have to be published not necessarily as a signal to market them on external sites, but more so:
a. To ensure that you actually have confirmed authority to sell them.
b. To ensure that enough fields have been populated so that purchasers / renters have enough information to make an educated decision on whether the property is suitable for them and also to ensure that a certain level of basic information exists for things like feedback approval, enquiry routing etc. This is different on a per property category basis. The requirement for information to publish a listing is quite low.
c. To ensure that when marketing material is generated (e.g. newsletters that you send to certain purchasers looking for off market properties or brochures) that it actually looks fully formed.
3. You can generate stocklist reports based on custom criteria when generating out the listing list view. If you so choose, you can tag certain listings as “off market” and then use a tag search to produce stocklists of either off market or on market listings.
4. When publishing a listing you have the choice of whether it should be available for newsletters, portal uploads, print materials etc.
If you need help or want more info on any of these points, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team.

Would be handy when a property has been withdrawn from the market just due to owner deciding not to sell, or another Agent having sold it for there to be just a simple option saying "Off the Market". This would hopefully make it easier for transferring the information to portals like realestate.com.au. If you put "Other" they still don't take it as "Off the Market". Am not sure why Rex needs us to assign a reason for the property being removed from the market. Just putting "Off the Market" would hopefully help all concerned.
