There has been a number of inquiries regarding how you can track your paid listings that are syndicated to Zillow. Questions such as what listings are displayed? How many days the property was displayed for? What is the performance of each property?
Good new is that Zillow provides their Rental Manager account that can be linked with your syndicated listings from YouGotListings. There is an Analytics tab that will answer all of the questions above.
If you do not have access to this functionality, please contact your Zillow rep to have them help you set it up.
When posting your ad to Craigslist using PennyPosting, you can now post to the "real estate - by owner" section. Craigslist does not charge for that section along with "real estate - by broker".
By request, Penny Posting has added the ability to post to the "real estate - by broker" section on Craigslist.
We are happy to announce that virtual tours for MLSPIN listings are now available. It is displayed exactly the same as current virtual tours, and has all the same features associated, such as virtual tour listings search, tour preview and personal site display.
360 photos support is now available in YGL. 360 photos are much better at showcasing a property than traditional photos, giving users a 360 view of the surroundings. You can use 360 photos as a standalone tour or as a good supplement to your existing video walkthrough.
Uploading 360 photos is the same as uploading traditional photos. They are automatically detected after upload. They appear on your personal site after a virtual tour, before traditional photos. Remember to add photos captions to indicate which room it is, which makes the viewing experience much better.
To take 360 photos, you'll need a 360 camera. The future of real estate is becoming more virtual, we think this is a good time to invest into a 360 camera. There are a lot of good videos on Youtube on this topic. Here is one to get you started.
When purchasing a camera, do keep in mind that not all 360 cameras are capable of shooting 360 videos, if that is also a capability you are looking for. So definitely do your research before purchase.
Again, if you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hear from you.
As you probably know, Zillow just started charging for postings in Connecticut, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada and Virginia.
If you are in the above states, your listings are no longer included in our general feed to Zillow to avoid accidental charges. You must setup your payment plan with Zillow then manually turn on the appropriate syndication setting. You can either syndicate all of your listings or only ones tagged with "ZillowFeed".
If you have setup a custom feed to Zillow independently, your custom feed is still being generated daily with no change. However, depending on your setup with Zillow, you might want to feed only "ZillowFeed" tagged listings instead of all your listings.
