Often, agencies will assign their own reference numbers to property listings for filing purposes, when using alongside other programs, or to display on their websites instead of the automatic ReSales Online Reference number…etc.
This can be helpful when searching for properties by selecting the [ ] Agency Ref Tickbox and can also be displayed when printing or sending a Window Card.
Best of all: It can be anything you want! (up to 16 characters)
(Please Note: these will be visible to other members and displayed on Window Cards if selected)
Some examples of this we have seen are:
- “AGENCY NAME”-123
- “PROPERTY TYPE“-123
The Agency Reference is not a mandatory field when uploading a property but if you are not yet using them for your own listings, you may be interested in starting as it could help you in the future.
