Great! Let’s get started. We’ll show you how to create a new Allhomes listing using Agent Portal.
If you are creating a new development child listing see this article.
Only start creating a new listing if you are ready for the listing to go live on the same day.
There are many components which are based off the ‘date created’ date which cannot be altered.
- These components include (but are not limited to):
- Listing ‘new’ tags,
- ‘Home alert’ programming
- Number of days on market
- Other agent/agency reporting stats
- Any auto-upgrade settings
An agent can create their own listings, or a team member with ‘Office Manager’ or ‘PA’ access can create listings on behalf of an agent.
Agent Portal may stall or time out if you take more than 20 minutes to complete your listing. If you find that you are unable to complete the whole listing within 20 minutes, you may wish to complete the listing in stages making sure to ‘save’ as you go, however the listing must be completed and sent live on the same day.
Before creating a new listing, make sure any agents to be assigned to the listing are already loaded into the Current Staff list. See this article for more details: Add or edit staff members on Agent Portal
