New HomeSpot HQ Features

It seemed fitting to kick off the new year with a few new features in HomeSpot HQ.  All of these items are suggestions from our users, so if you have ideas about how we can continue to make HomeSpot better, please let us know by emailing support@homespothq.com.

1. Zillow Zestimate® Integration: Your HomeSpot home profile now comes with a direct link to your home’s valuation provided by Zillow.  To see your Zillow details, click on the ‘Details’ link shown below your home’s photo and address on the ‘My Home’ dashboard page.  If Zillow can find your address, your Property Valuation details will be shown on the ‘Location Details’ tab.

2. Printable Home History Report: We received plenty of requests from users about having a way to generate a printable report from your HomeSpot account.  Well, we’ve put forth the first edition of the HomeSpot HQ Home History.  To generate your report, click on the ‘My Account’ link in the upper right hand corner, then click on the ‘Reports’ tab.  You’ll see a link there to generate your Home History Report.  The report will open in a new browser window, and has been pre-formatted for printing.

3. Default Avatars for Locations and Spaces: In order to dress up your HomeSpot account a bit, we’ve now set up default photos for your location and spaces.  You can still upload your own image, but let’s face it, that pale green placeholder image got old quick.

We also did our best to go through any bug reports we’d received and address those issues.

Here’s a few of the features we are working on for our next release:

  • support for multiple properties
  • Optimizations for tablet and mobile devices
  • Improved image uploader
  • Improved catalog of projects and maintenance items

As always, when new releases are made, we’ll post updates like this to the blog.
