This article shows Listing Agents how to manage and review offers for a transaction before rejecting, accepting, or countering the offer.
You learn how to:
- set up custom Offers instructions for Buyer's Agents
- use your custom transaction link to receive Offers into Glide
- manage, review and compare all received offer details
- share or present offers and recommendations with your Sellers
Opening the Offers page
1. Go to the Home page and select a transaction.
2. On the left menu, click "Offers."
- The Offers page opens.
Adding an offer
There are two ways for an offer to be stored within the relevant transaction.
- share a unique link directly with the prospective buyer's agents or post the link publicly on the MLS
- manually enter the offer details and upload the documents
Sharing a link
Each transaction has a unique link that lets a buyer's agent submit an offer to you via Glide. The link is on the Offers dashboard.
Copy and paste the link into an email message or SMS. You can also post the link on the MLS with a button that lets a buyer's agent submit offers directly to your transaction on Glide.
- As a buyer's agent, to learn how to use the link to create an offer, see How to Create an Offers Package.
Add custom instructions to the link
The listing team can attach specific instructions to the listing link, which are visible to the buy-side. The listing team can also activate a notification feature: receive an SMS each time an offer is submitted via the link.
- For more information, see: How to Set Up Offer Instructions.
Adding the link to MLS pages
All Listing Agents can add the Glide transaction link to their MLS listing remarks, and CRMLS Agents can use the Submit Offer button (with the Glide icon).
Glide's Property Portal
When a Buyer's Agent clicks the transaction link or Submit Offer button, the Glide Property Portal for this transaction opens in a browser tab.
- From this page, Buyer's Agents can create and submit an offer directly to the Listing Agent's Glide transaction by clicking Submit Offer.
- This works similar to the PEAD workflow but takes a few more steps.
Reviewing Offer Details
If you receive an offer outside of Glide, you can still use Glide to compare offer details and facilitate the negotiation. The second option is to enter details from an offer directly into your Glide listing transaction.
- Glide designed the Offers workflow so that either side or both sides can benefit. It does NOT require both sides of the transaction to use Glide to benefit.
- Listing Agents can select to Add Offer to enter key details for comparison, upload and save documents and
