Archiving & Reactivating a Property

Because Broker Brain's pricing plan is based on the number of open properties you have in the system, it important to archive any inactive properties to avoid being charged for them. This is a simple process. 
  • Before you can archive a property, you must have a property status in your system that is set as Archival.  Typically the Closed property status is used for this purpose.  However, you can create additional property statuses that are also set to Archival.  To do this, see Admin Tab>Statuses>Property.
