Showcase your sold property listings on your Flex Website


Many of our clients have asked about this feature in the past because to some this does have some marketing value.

Real Estate agents often ask us to have all their sold property listings showcase on their website to show the general public that they are indeed specialists in the industry, know their areas well and have the expertise to sell a property on behalf of a real estate owner.

With our Flex responsive real estate website, clients will now be able to create pages dedicated to showcasing their sold stock to the public, like a brag page almost.

When an estate agent has sold a listing, the status of the listings can be changed in the OMS to Sold (Registered).



Change the status of your Sold listing by Opening the Mandate in the OMS -> Status ->Sold Registered -> Save Changes 

Order an additional page for your Flex Real Estate Website to showcase all your Sold listings individually.  By ordering a custom menu for your Flex website at only R199 excl VAT you can add the link "What we've sold" or "Our Success" - you can really name it anything that you want to - and display these listings on your website for the public to view.



Sold listings will automatically display as live listings on your website for a period of 6 weeks, thereafter they will automatically be removed from your website.  You will still be able to find your listings under the sold stock in the OMS.

If you're interested in having this feature, send our support team a message and we'll add this feature to you Flex Website

Show more search options with your Flex Real Estate Website

Due to numerous requests we've amended the search functionality on our responsive real estate website product, Flex.

Entegral clients that already have their own Flex website will now have the option to either keep their search functionality with less search options at first glance or they can change the way their search functionality displays and have more search options available immediately.

Originally, as on www.protearealestate.co.za,  the search functionality was designed to display as follow:

Visitors can search by selecting the status, entering the area or reference number and do a quick search.

The "Options" link enables clients to open a more advanced search function with more search options such as price minimum and maximum, property type, number of bedrooms and bathrooms:


This advanced search option can now be show by default should you wish to change the way your search displays once your site has been opened by your website visitor.

The search will stay constant on all pages namely your results and details pages.


If you wish to change the way your search option displays, send our support team an email (support@entegral.net) and we'll amend your Flex Site accordingly.

*This options excludes the Canvas Theme
