It's easy to display any properties on any page of your website - including a blog post.
For example

  • Are you in a coastal area? Ski slope properties? Or on a beach, or with ocean views?
    Nearly all the MLS search criteria are available to you, so take advantage of this and create really specific, niche pages for YOUR market.
  • Are you writing a blog post on the latest market stats for a neighborhood. Include a block of live results showing the latest homes for sale in this neighborhood

To do this, you will need to know how add a blog post or edit pages on your website.

Just Two Steps...

Getting properties to display on your website is easy!

1. Create the Widget Code to Display Properties

The "Widget" code will display the properties you want people to see. This is easy to do and the "Display Properties" wizard in your account will guide you through the steps.

Follow the instructions below to create the widget code.

  1. Log in to you Leads and Contacts system at www.leadsandcontacts.com.
  2. Click the Widgets link in the left side navigation of your user dashboard, then click Display Properties with Widgets. This will start the display wizard.
  3. There are four steps in the wizard:
    1. Choose the type of display you want then click Next Step. Your Choices are
      - List Display
      - Grid Display
      - Map Display
    2. Set your listing options and click Next Step. Your choices include:
      - Showing all MLS listings, only your listings, or only listings from your office
      - Showing 10 or more properties on a page
      - Sorting your listings by date, price, or city
    3. Set your filter criteria.
      Pick the location and features of the listings you want to display. You can pick multiple things to filter on.  Once you think you'e got what you want, be sure to click the Preview Listings button and check your results. When the results look good, use the back button at the top of the screen to get back to step 3 and click Next Step.
    4. Step 4 will give you the code that you need for HTML and WordPress.

2. Paste the Widget Code on Your Website

The code you use will depend on your website system. For example if you have WordPress or other similar CMS (Content Management System), you will use the widget code for WordPress.

Once you've gotten the widget code, (step 4 in the section above), follow the steps below to complete this.

  1. Determine if your website is WordPress or HTML. Note: If you do not know, or have no experience, you might be best handling this off to your webmaster for assistance.
  2. Copy the matching code for the type of website you have.
  3. Paste the code onto the page that you want to display those properties.

 

PRO TIP

Create pages specific to your audience!

Think of your clients -- Are they down-sizing? Looking for retirement communities? Wanting to be near specific school systems? Interested in condo life?

Create pages specifically for them and display those properties. For maximum benefit, add a short paragraph above the listings that talks about that specific lifestyle. This will allow people to connect with your search results, and gives you a little SEO boost in the process.
