Better searching ability among new features

Inman News

Fidelity National Financial's real estate solutions division has released an update to Paragon v.3.0, a Web-based multiple listing service platform for real estate properties.

The update includes enhancements to several features in the Paragon system, including the multi-class property search, the tax module and the IDX smart framing feature. The new features added to the multi-class property search allow users to perform a single search on various class criteria, including single family, multi-family, commercial and land.

Search criteria also can now be saved specific to prospects so that those criteria do not have to be re-entered each time a search is performed. Pre-saved searches for prospects can also be modified and saved for use with new prospects, reducing the setup time for new searches.

Upgrades to the tax module have improved the functionality of the tax auto-fill feature to allow more flexibility to how and when public property tax information is added to the listing, according to a company statement.

The IDX smart framing feature lets brokers and agents display local information using the Internet Data Exchange protocol mandated by the National Association of Realtors. The feature now includes the ability to search by major area, including counties and entire metropolitan areas.

Fidelity National Financial provides products and outsourced services and solutions to financial institutions and the real estate industry. Fidelity also is the nation's largest title insurance company.
