How to Use the HomeDax Real Estate Listing Show Sheet Generator [Tutorial]


In this HomeDax tutorial, we will be
showing you how to use the proprietary shows sheet generator available on HomeDax dot com. Now the purpose of the show sheet generator is to make it easy for
agents and brokers of the firm to update and regenerate their own show sheets for
listings whenever there is a change in the price the description or any other
important detail of the listing for examples such as the common charges if you’re listing a home and the common charges go up during the term of the
listing you’ll want to update the listing online and you’ll also want to
update the show sheet. So in order to navigate to the show sheet generator
there’s two ways you could go directly to the URL at the top of the screen HomeDax.com/showsheetgenerator or if you are in the agent
materials section you can scroll down to tools and click on show sheet generator.
So once we’re on the generator you’ll be prompted to fill in a bunch of
information and then once you’re done if you hit generate it’s going to
automatically download a copy of the show sheet. Couple of notes the maximum image upload size is one megabyte so when you’re uploading to the large image
that’s on the front by the way and also the back images and the floor plan
if you upload something larger than one megabyte it will not allow you to
generate the show sheet and furthermore the description length has a maximum of
one thousand five hundred and eight characters and then as far as amenities
the check lists below you can only check fourteen amenities you can certainly
check fewer than 14 but that’s going to be where it will cut you off. So let’s go
ahead and proceed with an example. So today we have a property in Harlem which
is one two eight zero Fifth Avenue. So we’re going to start by putting in the
address one two eight zero okay Avenue apartment 25 the price we
have it written down here it’s two point nine and nine million so here you would
just type in the price now the front description usually the way that I like
to do it is I put the layout and then I put the location so three beds three and
a half baths in East Harlem. So we’ll copy that put that in the front
description and you’ll see how that looks in a minute generally speaking the
photos that are produced by our media team are gonna be high resolution so the
size will be considerably larger than one megabyte. So here are a few examples
our photos are between 10 and 20 megabytes so in order to resize them
there’s a number of ways you can do it if you have a method that works continue
to use that one way that we like to do it is using this website here at the top
this is really easy so you would just take the images that you need and you
would then drag them into the page right here and then click on file size the
images will be resized and then go ahead and just pick a number that is close to
a million I mean you could do exactly a million if you want but it doesn’t
really matter so we’ll just say 971 click on start resizing and then it’s
gonna process the images it will automatically download a folder on your
computer where you can pull the images and put them into the calculator. So
we’re gonna let that run for a minute and then we’ll just go back to the show
sheet generator and we can continue with some other things. So the description is
a maximum length of one thousand five hundred and eight characters in this
particular example we have a description here we’ve already prepared now if you
want to figure out how many characters it is if you have word you can just go
to tools and click on word count and it will tell you how many characters here
we have about a thousand so that’s totally fine you can also use a
character counter online just feel free to Google that. So we’re going to copy
the description and we will first of all save down the
resize images and then we’re gonna paste the description into the field here now
if you want to use a longer description that’s fine I’m gonna just paste it a
few times and you’ll see that it doesn’t allow me to type any further so that
means you’ve basically hit the limit but in this case the description is a little
shorter so we’re gonna go ahead and leave it with that a zip folder so we’re
gonna download that and in the folder you will see that we have nicely resized
images that will work for the Shoshi generator so we’re going to click on
browse under large image and here it will prompt us to upload the image for
the cover front side of the show sheet so we’ll go ahead and use the first
image it has been resized below one megabyte so we won’t have any issues
click on the image click open and it will put it right there now we’ll
quickly just scroll down to the photos just to finish that up so in the back
there’s gonna be a couple rows of photos so you’ll just you know feel free to do
the ordering as you’d like in this case we’re just gonna go sequentially so I’m
gonna put two four back image two I’m going to put the third image back image
three use the fourth one and again you can play around with it if you don’t
like the order and you can just regenerate it using a different ordering
and then the floor plan image just want to make sure it’s the correct dimensions
for the system to work with usually our editing team will provide you with that
specific file in this case we added here as the floor plan so we’re good on the
media and then if we scroll up we’ll just want to finish a few other things
so for the taxes we have sixteen eighteen the maintenance
25:19 and the layout is going to be three beds three and a half baths
so we’ll just copy that and paste it here now if you are selling a co-op or a
house you would just put well you would put zero in taxes for a
co-op and if you’re selling a house you would just put zero in the monthly
maintenance field now for the amenities we’re just gonna check a bunch of random
amenities just to show you what it looks like just keep in mind that there’s a
limit of 14 that you can select the final item is going to be your contact
information so in this case this listing is Elisa’s so we’re going to just use
her information here so we’ll put the name with the email title and the phone
number and let’s click generate it usually takes a few seconds it can be
quicker if the file sizes are smaller but in this case it looks like we are on
track so we’ll go back to downloads and looks like it’s already saved down the
show sheet so if we click on the show sheet pdf out you’re gonna see the show
sheet so this is the front this is that front front image so this one here is
the large image in the form and of course you have the price you have that
front description goes here on the right so you see that under front description
and then at the back everything is automatically generated as per the
instructions that you’ve provided and if the description you include is longer
and you have more amenities it’s going to push this information further down on
the show sheet so in fact it will actually be more optimal for you if you
use a longer description it will make the space fill out a little bit nicer so
that’s how you you use the show sheet generator you are certainly welcome to
play around with it if you don’t like the output again you can reorder the
photos you can mix it up change whatever you need to change but this is available
