On smartphones such as iPhone® and Blackberry®, the phone numbers may be auto-dialed and the emails may be sent with just a click! 

Ensuring Your Listing Shows on the Map

Most addresses will show on the Google™ map immediately. Please check your listing to ensure it shows on the map correctly. However, as Google™ has not mapped all areas, your new subdivision might not show on their mapping system as yet.

We can help you by manually keying in a geo code, otherwise known as a longitude and latitude, for you. We will just need to know the closest established address; Contact us by email to Jessica (at) newhomeorrenovate.com with this information. Once Google™ has your area mapped, your property will be automatically adjusted. Google has not yet conducted 'street view' in all areas.

Listing Description

The first 150 characters are what Google picks up for their search queries. Include Keywords in your description as customers will use them to refine their Keyword Search - ie: gourmet kitchen, granite, Kohler, Miele appliances, Private School.

Also include SEO words for internet search engines such as Google, Yahoo, etc. to find. For example:

  • If you are selling a Calgary condo, ensure the words "condo" & "Calgary" & "real estate" show in one or two lines of the description.
  • If you have lots to sell close to a major centre such as Saskatoon, include the name of the town where the lots are located & "Saskatoon" & "lots" & "real estate." You'll have greater success with your listing.
  • Finding a balance in the description of your company and property listing is important. Customers will want to go to your website to find out more about your project and more about you!

Texting Service 

The texting service is an automatic feature of each listing - the street address, price number of bedrooms and bathrooms, contact name, phone number and email address will be pushed from our classic website to the text message. You may use the listing number automatically assigned for each listing or you may purchase a vanity name to use on your signage and advertising. At this time the carriers, Bell, Rogers, Telus, etc., allow 136 characters per text message.

Check Your Listing After You Are Finished

Take a look at your listing to ensure it showcases your property just as you wish. Don't forget to look on both sites - Classic and Mobile. Although the Classic and Mobile sites have the same information, you may want to adjust the text or a photo to ensure your property showcases well.
You may only view an iPhone® App listing on an iPad®, iPhone® or iPod® Touch; however, we have built the listing to look very similar to our Mobile site listing. If you need to make changes, do them right away - your customers might already be searching for you! 

Have you Sold Your Property?

Congratulations! Please remember to indicate this on the Property Manager under Update, and a Sold banner will be placed on your listing. The Auto-Renewal will be cancelled. Or, if you prefer, you may change the information to reflect a new unit for the remainder of the term. Seach engines cache your listing information so it is always best to indicate the listing has sold. With FREE listings you can easily add your new project.

Automatic Renewals

You will be notified by email one week before your optional service is to expire and will be given renewal options.
Please refer to our Privacy Policy & Terms of Use for more information.

Statistics

Please fill in as much information as you can. This will help in the compilation of meaningful statistics for market trends and product inventory. We are currently building this feature. Once built statistical reports will be available to all listers upon request.
