The New Offer feature is used to create a copy of an existing transaction. This feature is most useful when a pending offer on a listing has fallen through (or was cancelled/terminated for any reason) and there's now a new offer on the same listing. This feature is also useful when a deal has fallen through and you now need to track new activity on the deal isolated from the fallen-through transaction.
The following data is copied from the original transaction to the new offer:
- All agents
- All docs (except sale docs and buyer docs)
- All checklist tasks except selling agent tasks
- Open the transaction and choose [New Offer] from the left menu.
- If you'd like the notes from the original transaction to be copied over to the new offer, check the checkbox for carrying over notes. If you don't want the notes copied, leave it unchecked.
- Click the [Create Offer] button to create your new offer.
When creating a new offer, you can choose whether you’d like checklists to be copied over. Note that checklist tasks visible only to selling agents will never be carried over.
- The new offer option is available to admins and agents who have the “create transaction” permission.
- All new offers are linked in the "Original Offer" box of the original transaction.
- The first 5 new offers on a transaction do not count against your monthly quota. All subsequent new offers related to the transaction will be counted against your quota.
- The New Offer feature is most appropriate for managing multiple offers on a listing. However, this feature may be used in other situations where you need a copy of a transaction.
