What is ShowingTime (formally Centralized Showing Service (CSS)?
I often spend a lot of time explaining how arrangements are made to show homes. ShowingTime is a clearing house all local agents use to set up showings for buyers. When we list your home, we set up ShowingTime for you and give you online access to monitor your showings and make changes to your schedule and instructions. You can set hours for showings, give alarm instructions, require advance permission and notification or if the home is vacant set it up for agents to just go and show. Summary reports of showings and agent feedback is emailed to the seller and listing agent to build a mosaic of information to help decide how the home is being perceived by the market place. Sometimes questions come in through ShowingTime and we respond with your input to those questions. For sellers, ShowingTime can be reached by phone at 817-858-0055 or sign in at https://www.showingtime.com/
When you are buying a home we often use ShowingTime to set up your showings, receive permission to show you the home, get instructions and provide your feed back to the selling agent. The public cannot call ShowingTime to set up a showing. For obvious security reasons, only licensed agents can use this service. Not all agents use ShowingTime for a variety of monetary and control needs but the most do so.
