If I am a member of a COMMREX state level site can I use COMMREX.com?
Your login ID and Password is good for use in COMMREX.com. Just login and list your properties in COMMREX and they will automatically show up in the Alabama or Austin/Central Texas COMMREX site according to your membership.
What is the PackageCenterTM and how can I post Packages?
COMMREX PackageCenter is a fee-based on-line lead generation and Property Package distribution center. In order for your Property Packages and flyers and Confidentiality Agreements (if your owner requires one) to be attached to your listings and also posted in the high profile PackageCenter your cost is $69.00 annually for participation. Payment is required via PayPal.com so you will need to set up an instant, free PayPal.com account if you do not already have one, make payment by credit card or on-line check and proceed to upload your Packages and designate passwords for retrieval in MyCOMMREX. Distribute links to your packages automatically with PackageDirect (coming soon).
How will I know who retrieved my packages from the PackageCenter?
That is the lead generation portion of the PackageCenter. In order to download a package the user must either be a registered COMMREX member who logs in with their ID and Password or a user who must complete a short form for package retrieval. The agent/owner contact shown on a property will receive an email showing the user's contact information each time someone requests a password for your package.
If you are a member of any COMMREX site, such as Alabama, your packages will show up in the appropriate site AND in COMMREX.com. This is great distribution in two places for the price of one.

Maps & Demographics
Maps are freely pulled from MapQuest so we have no control over the accuracy of the maps that are attached to a property address.
The area map on my listing is not accurate.
Maps are generated from the information that is included in the "Property Address" field of the property. To identify the location of a property you must include a valid street address (example 789 Main Drive) or a simple intersection (example Main Street and First Avenue) in the "Property Address" field. Area maps are generated immediately so you can modify a property and instantly view the results. If you still are unhappy with the MapQuest results upload your own map as one of your photo attachments and choose Location Map from the scroll box.
Demographics are linked automatically by ZipCode to the U.S. Census Bureau.
We maintain over 125 mailing lists by geographic area and property type. All listings appropriate to a specific list are automatically emailed to list members when the listing is entered into the system. If you join any of the lists (Click eLeads in MyCOMMREX and follow directions for subscription) you may also post property related haves and needs to the list. We reserve the right to deny access to any list without notice to a member who abuses the purpose of the list.
What is the listing term?
6 months with one renewal of 6 months
A property notice is generated to all appropriate mailing lists each time a property is added to the system.
Data Transfer. I am a CCIM or CCIM Candidate. Will my listings be distributed to CCIMNet?
No, CIREI will not accept data transfers from outside their CCIMNet system. This was being done in the past, after we built the original CCIMNET, but since Catylyst began managing the process, it was decided by CIREI not to transfer data to and from COMMREX as had been done in the past. If you need your data in a tranferable format, please let us know.
