Listing blocked by external portal? check your email

If the OMS has a problem sending a listing to an external portal, a little warning triangle will show up next to the portal on the listing’s online marketing page. Hover your mouse over the icon to get the specific details. In some cases the portal can block the listing without a specific reason sent back to the OMS, as shown below. In cases like these, they will usually send you or your office an email with the specific reason.

Where listings are blocked, it can actually shows up as sold/expired on Property24 – so check the listing’s OMS status first.

We’ve also made improvements to the interface to ensure properties removed aren’t stuck on Property24 – even in the event of interface failure problems.

Flex real estate website updates

We have done the following updates on all the new generation Flex real estate websites:

Right click on property photos disabled

To make it more difficult for competitors to copy photos from your website, we have disabled the mouse right click on property details photos.

 

Aspect ratio on photos in property search results

We’ve improved the aspect ratio of photos in property search results. Previously the photos were slightly squashed.

New photo count badge on property details

The number of photos on a listing is now displayed on the photo tab. The property below has 19 photos.

New area filters for multi-office sites

  • For multi-offices with a Flex website the office search facility now has a property portfolio sidebar where properties are grouped by town and suburb, including counts.

 

 

 

 

 

SEO Improvements
