Interactive Rate Calculators in your SEMAR Listings
Turn passive buyers into active buyers with accurate monthly cost-to-own estimates customized with rates and products from your most trusted lenders.
Far too many closings fail due to financing. Protect your time and effort by engaging a trusted lender that uses RatePlug to help you close faster. Unlike typical mortgage payment calculators, RatePlug displays interactive mortgage rates on the MLS display and leverages the full property detail available within the MLS to calculate monthly affordability. This monthly cost to own includes the full PITI, HOA, and other costs based upon multiple financing options. When your home-buyers say “we can afford that” they are more likely to make an offer.
The image to the right shows an example of an interactive mortgage rate calculator embedded in a MLS listing.
How is RatePlug displayed within the MLS?
The screenshot below shows how RatePlug may display within the SEMAR system FlexMLS.
