The checklist in your agent profile will guide you to complete the items in your profile that will maximize your chances of receiving referrals.
How Do I Upload My Transaction History?
HomeLight Set algorithm uses transaction data to match buyers and sellers with real estate agents.
To maximize your chances of receiving referrals, you will need to ensure that your past 1-3 years of transaction history is uploaded and verified.
There are two ways to add transactions:
1.If you have several transactions to add, we recommend using the upload spreadsheet tool.
2.If you have a small number of transactions to add, you can add each of your transactions individually through the single transaction tool.
Regardless of which method you use, keep in mind the following:
1.We ask that you only upload residential sales transactions. You should not add rental, commercial, or land transactions.
2.You’ll need to provide supporting evidence that our team can use to cross-verify the transaction data you add. Verification examples could include a link to your sold listings on the MLS, your personal website, or a screenshot or PDF of your production report.
Bulk Uploading Transactions to HomeLight Set
To get started, you will need to gather the required information. Each transaction requires the following details:
1.Which side of the transaction you represented (buyer, seller or both)
3.Full Property Address
4.Original Listing Date and Price
5. Selling Date and Price
Note: If you are licensed in a nondisclosure state, this information is still required, but will not be displayed publicly.
Once you have gathered the required information, download the template spreadsheet. This is the spreadsheet you will use to compile all of your transactions.
1.The template spreadsheet contains a header row. Do not make any changes to this row or any of its contents.
2.Next, begin entering your transaction data. Ensure that you don’t skip any rows and all fields are formatted correctly.
3.Columns A through K are required for each transaction. The remaining columns are optional, but you must leave the header rows intact. You are encouraged to fill out as many of the columns as possible.
4.Once you are done, save the file in CSV format.
Use the “Upload spreadsheet” button to upload the file. You’ll also be required to upload your verification evidence.
Uploading Single Transactions to HomeLight Set
To add a single transaction to HomeLight Set, click the “Single Transaction” button.
Simply fill out the form with the required information, then provide a link to your verification source or upload a verification file.
If there are any problems with the spreadsheet or verification you provided, you will receive an email with further details. Otherwise, you will receive a confirmation email letting you know that your transactions have been successfully verified. Once your transactions are verified, they will immediately be included in our referral matching algorithm.
How Do I Verify My Transactions?
Getting Your Transactions Verified
After uploading your transactions, HomeLight Set will need to independently verify that the transaction information provided is accurate.
Send an email to email@example.com with a valid form of verification. An example of this would be a link or PDF of your MLS records or your production report. Our team will cross-verify the verification documentation you provide with the transactions you uploaded to verify the transactions.
Not all transactions can be verified. HomeLight Set verification system integrates directly with Google Maps as well as the United States Postal Service. If an address does not exist in Google Maps, or if the address is marked as "undeliverable" by USPS, we cannot verify that particular transaction.
Examples of transactions which cannot be verified for one of these reasons may include:
3.Rural, vacation, or mountain properties
4.Properties that receive mail at a PO Box
Please note that due to our system integration, there is no alternate method for verifying these transactions.
