Increase your “App Share” by asking others to share the app too! Make it a goal to get an “App a Day”
Sharing the app is not only critical to the success you will experience with HomeScout, it's easy! Share the app with your friends, family, and customers (past and present). In fact, you can greatly increase your "App Share" by encouraging the people you have in the app to share it with their sphere-of-influence as well! Make it a goal to get at least 15-20 people into the app in the first several days after you get started. Watch this video for share options.

Watch this video on how to access the HBM Dash.
The Quick List is the default screen for the HBM Dash that shows your buyer’s online activities and automatically ranks them based on their level of activity on the HomeScout app. It helps you and your agents, by automatically sorting through all buyers and showing where you should be to be focusing your time and efforts. This feature will save you time and resources, in addition to giving you the opportunity to stay connected with buyers.
From here you can launch the Fish Bowl for in-depth buyer reporting.
The Fish Bowl is a real-time newsfeed of all buyer activities on the HomeScout app. It provides various time-saving filters that help loan officers and agents view the kinds of activities their buyers are doing, when they are doing it and how often.
