The Consumer Guide in the KW App is designed to walk your clients through the process of buying or selling a home while tracking their progress throughout the process. In Command, you have the ability to customize a Buyer and Seller Guide to fit exactly how your business runs. You can add or remove steps, edit the information within the steps, and also re-order the steps of the guide.
Keep in mind, there are two types of guide steps: Educational steps and Smart steps. Educational steps are fully editable and feature detailed information about the step, once clicked on. Smart steps are pre-made steps that feature special pages that ultimately link to outside websites. The three Smart steps that are available right now are included in the Buyer's Guide: the "Get Pre-Approved" step links to a Keller Mortgage page, the "Home Insurance" step links to a Keller Covered page, and the "What Can I Afford?" step includes an affordability calculator that the client can use to get an idea of their estimated price range. These Smart steps are not editable, but you are able to remove these steps and create custom, educational steps in their place.
