If you are using our auto-update feature, we search the MLS for all of your current listings and add/update them on your website for you.
If your listings cannot be found by our system, they will have to be added manually from the Manage Your Listings tab.
For more information on, see Adding a Listing.
In this video we will show you how to enable and disable the auto update feature pertaining to your listings on you iHouse Elite Website. We will also go over some specifics on how this feature reflects your listings and the MLS.
Please wait while we update our video!
To find ALL of your listings, you simply need the MLS number for ONE of your active listings (having the Zip code for the listing may be helpful). Please make sure that it is an active listing, listings that are closed, pending, or under contract do not show up in the data feed.
In Edit Mode, go to the Listings tab and click on the Find Your Listings tab. Type in your listing’s MLS number, select the state in which your listing lies, and enter its Zip Code if you have it. Click the Find Listings button.
The auto-update system will show you exactly what it found in the MLS based on the MLS# you provided. It will tell you who it thinks you are, based on the listing agent for the listing you provided. It will then show you all your active listings for that Listing Agent Name and all recent inactive listings.
If auto-update has identified you correctly and successfully retrieved your listings, click the Add Listings button at the bottom of your page and your listings will be added to your website.
If the information is not correct, use the Cancel button and try the MLS# for one of your other listings.
Sometimes you may have entered your name slightly differently when submitting different listings to the MLS. For example, you may have included your middle initial or used a nickname for one entry and then used your regular full name for another. If this is the case you will have to do the Find Your Listings step again using the MLS# of a listing that is still missing (one that uses your alias).
Some listings may not be eligible for auto-updates. For example, rental and commercial listings do not work with the auto-update feature. Also, residential listings sometimes cannot be found in our database, in which case you will have to add them manually.
What is a Listing Agent Name?
A Listing Agent Name is the name that an agent uses to submit their listing to the MLS. When you find your listings we identify the name of the agent who owns those listings. Then in the future we auto-update the listings that we find with that agent’s name.
Most of the time you will only have one listing agent name, but there are exceptions:
If you have our Office Website package, you may want to create a Listing Agent Name for each one of your agents, so all of your office listings appear on your website.
Sometimes an agent may have slight variations on their name. To find all their listings, we need to know what the different variations are. For example, an agent may have listings under the name “George Miller” but also under “George C. Miller”.
Note: This isn't related to the names of agents you add under your Agents view, or the contact info you set under your Profile. You can however, associate Agents with Listing Agent Names by going to the Listings view in Edit mode, and clicking the Listings Agent Names tab.
