How do I book a showing for my buyers?

How to Schedule a Showing as a Buyers Agent

There are two ways to book a showing through Instashowing. You can do this from your Instashowing Dashboard, or from the MLS Listing. If someone sent you the booking link for the property, that works too! We also allow you to track the appointment status as you wait for the approval process.

Booking through Instashowing

If you would like to book a showing through the Instashowing Dashboard, login to Instashowing, and click the Buyer Showings button in the left hand navigation menu. Next, click the Book New Showing in the upper right.

You will be asked to identify the address of the property. Don’t worry if you don’t remember the exact address. The search results will begin to appear as you begin to type, and partial words or house numbers should narrow the results enough for you to find the property you are looking for. 

Once you’ve selected the address, you’ll be brought to the booking calendar for that listing.Pick the date and time that works best for you and your client. Screen Shot 2021-11-09 at 2.35.37 PM



Upon click, you will be asked to verify the details of your appointment. Once you confirm the listing appointment details, and your contact information, click Book Single Showing.

If the listing agent has automatic approval selected, you’ll get a confirmation shortly. If they require approval, keep an eye out for the approval. This showing will appear on your Calendar and in your Buyer Showings section of the dashboard, with current approval status listed.

Booking through your MLS

If you are browsing your MLS listings for properties to show your buyers, we made it easy for you to schedule a showing right from the MLS Dashboard.

When you get to a listing you’d like to schedule a showing for, click the more link toward the upper right corner of the listing and select Instashowing. You will be brought to the booking calendar for that listing.

Appointment Status

If you return to the Buyer Showings page, your showings will be listed by the date and time of the appointment, with the next upcoming appointment on top, and the appointment furthest out at the bottom.

This section has three submenus: Pending, Approved, and Cancelled

  • The Pending section will show any appointments you attempted to book which haven’t been approved by the seller side yet. 
  • The Approved tab will list all approved showings you have scheduled, along with details about the seller agent. 
  • The final menu is for Cancelled bookings. This will include cancellations initiated by either party, and provides you with contact details for the appropriate agent, along with the cancelled appointment time.
