Your Featured Listings Pages allow you to promote your own listings on your site. Our system will automatically check the MLS for your listings and make them available to use on your site as a Featured Listing.
To view and edit your Featured Listing Pages, log into your iHOUSEweb admin menu, click Edit Website, click Pages, then click edit on the page row you want to edit or by clicking the Edit this page link while on your featured listings page.
Featured Listings Page Settings
One of the best aspects of the iHOUSE ELITE website is the ability Real Estate Professionals have to add featured listings that they want to promote on their website.
- Change the page’s title.
- Add a block of text to the top of the page as a description of the listings you’re featuring.
- Change the publish settings and add navigation links.
- Determine how many listings to show in the matching homepage widget for this page and the order in which to display your listings everywhere they appear.
When you're done, click Save page settings.
Rules for Which Listings to Show
Once your listings are on your website, you can create different listing pages to display different types of listings. Your Elite Website can automatically filter your listings according to the rules you specify. One popular use for this feature is creating separate pages for Active and Closed Listings.
To only show active listings on your page, you would select Listing Status from the first dropdown menu and active from the second. Then click Add this rule. You could then also create a new featured listing page and then create a rule for that one, telling it to only display listings with a status of “closed”. Your Elite Website will automatically filter your listings and display them on the appropriate pages.
The filtering criteria for your featured listings pages include:
- Listing Status
- Sub Type
- Display Status
- Square Footage
- Year Built
- Lot Size
- Agent Profile
Note: When you create or edit a listing, you have the option of giving it a tag. This allows you to then sort your listings according to your assigned tag. For example, you could mark certain properties as “waterfront” and then create a featured listings page for Waterfront Properties.
Why Have More Than One Featured Listings Page?
Creating multiple featured listings pages allows you to showcase different types of properties. It also allows your website visitors to quickly and easily find the properties that most interest them, without wading through the categories that don’t interest them. You can create a page for Luxury properties, Short Sales, Waterfront Properties, Condos, etc., anything you want!
Featured Listings on Your Homepage
You can add a featured listings module to your homepage for each featured listing page you create. Control the number of listings that each module will display under the Page Settings section of the edit screen for that page. You will also need to make sure to add each module to your homepage by going to your home page in edit mode and clicking the Edit this page link at the top.
You can also add a featured listing slideshow to your homepage for each featured listing page you create. Control the number of listings that each module will display under the Page Settings section of the edit screen for that page. This setting controls both the number of listings in the slideshow and the listing module.
