How is the Turnover Rate calculated?

IF YOU ARE FARMING IN TEXAS: The turnover is calculated based on Any/All Transfers in the area over the past 12 months versus the total number of homes in the area selected. Turnover Rate does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
Example calculation: An area selected with 100 homes, had 10 properties with transfers last year.  The turnover rate is 10%.

ALL OTHER STATES: The turnover rate is calculated based on the number of Full Transfers in the area over the last 12 months versus total number of homes in the area selected. Does not take into account any filters you may have applied.
Example calculation: An area selected with 100 homes, had 5 properties with full transfers last year.  The turnover rate is 5%.

How do I update the Farm Data?

Walking Farm® is designed for a user to pull an area, walk a farm, and make notations to the property (updating the property details for one’s own use).  For this reason, farm data is only pulled at the time it is created and do not update.  “Updating” a farm would overwrite the work the user has done on managing the details of property within a farm.

Farm map will not go to an address / Remains at my location.

Maps on Farming are not designed to go to a specific location/address, but instead to farm a general area. The map will always load based on your location first. Refer to the details below to locate another area on the map to begin your farm search:

Android: Enter city/state or zip code to locate that general area on the map. Pan/zoom until you locate your precise area to draw your farm shape.

Apple: you may enter a specific address or intersection, and the map will locate that general area on the map. Pan/zoom until you locate your precise area to draw your farm shape.

 

I have more than 1000 farm credits. Why does it keep telling I can’t pull a report more than 1000?

You may pull a maximum of 1000 properties in a report. You may pull multiple reports until you reach your credit limit.

I created a Farm on one device, but am not seeing it on my other device.

The application does not sync across devices. So for example, if you created the report on your tablet and then opened the application on your phone, you would have access to the farm you saved on your tablet.

What is the max report size / number of properties?

You may pull a maximum of 1000 properties in a report. You can create an area larger than 1000 properties, but would need to define it to a smaller report size using filters.

How many farm reports can I save?

There is no limit to the number of reports you can save in the application.

Do farm reports expire?

Farm Reports do not expire.

I created a path for my “Walking Farm®” but it seems to have missed some of the properties.

If your farm is missing properties when you sort, it is possible that the line you drew missed some of the properties.  This is common when a user is trying to sort a very large farm (a hundred to several hundred properties) – the line does need to be drawn quite close to the map pins, and in a very crowded map this can be difficult to do.  A “best use case” for Walking Farm® is to sort a list of properties you plan to walk that day.  This allows you to “zoom in” on the map to a smaller area, and draw a more concise line.

How do the Farm Filters work?

Sale / Transfer Date: Allows you to select start and/or end dates for a period of the most recent transaction.
TIP: Combining this with the “Sale Type” filter for example, would allow you to filter only for properties that sold more than one year ago – since someone who just moved in might not be a good prospect — yet!)

Use Codes – Will provide only properties that match the use type(s) you have selected.
TIP: To search for *all* properties, you do not need to select *any* use codes.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms – Will return only properties within the specified range.
TIP: You do not have to specify *both* a min and max. For example, if you want to return properties that have a minimum of 3 bedrooms, simply select 3 as the minimum, and leave the max empty.

Owner Occupied
“Yes” – Provides only properties that are owner-occupied (as designated by the mailing address).
“No” – Provides only properties where the mailing address for the owner, is different from the property address.
“Either” – Includes both of the above types.
