02 NOV 2022

We have added a new feature in your admin console called Contacts. This allows you to add contacts, like owners, buyers, sellers, tenants, and then link them to a property.

Below is a quick video explaining how Contacts work.

How to use Contacts.

Our new contacts feature enables you to do the following:

  • Keep all contacts for your properties in one place & have them available to everyone in your agency.
  • Associate many different types of contacts with a property, be it the owner, tenant, seller, landlord, managing agent, or viewing contact.
  • See all the contacts for a property. 
  • See all the properties a contact is associated with.

We would like to hear what you think about this new feature, so please give it a try and let us know if you have any questions or feedback.

Properties Reports

20 OCT 2022

We have created a new properties report feature which is available in your admin console under the Properties drop-down.

With this new feature, you can create reports by choosing the columns (property features) and properties to appear in the report. They can be downloaded, either as PDF or Excel, and can also be saved for future use enabling quick and easy generation of these reports going ahead.

Example of a downloaded PDF sales report.

Examples of reports you could possibly create are:
  • All properties for sale or rent.
  • All properties for sale or rent by a specific estate agent.
  • All residential or commercial properties for sale.
We have created a short video to explain how the reports work - watch it here.

Please note this feature is only available on our premium package.

We know that setting up the reports for the first time can be a challenge, so please contact us to help you with this if needed.

Change agents on Property Brochures

22 SEP 2022

We have added further flexibility to our Property Brochures. When downloading or printing a brochure from the admin console you can now select any agent to appear on it. 

This is for agents who only want their own details to appear on the brochure when they send or give it to clients. 

Please note this does not change the agent associated with the listing on the website.

Change agent on the brochure.

We hope you will find this update useful. If you have any feedback, we would love to hear it.

New Calculators

01 SEP 2022

We have added two new calculators to the calculator page on our premium sites. We now have an Affordability Calculator and a Bond and Transfer Calculator. These are in addition to our two existing bond calculators. 

New calculators.

The Affordability Calculator gives you a rough indication of the bond amount you possibly qualify for, and the Bond and Transfer Calculator calculates all the costs associated with registering a bond and transferring a property.

We are sure these additions will be of great value to visitors to your website. 

If you have a premium site which does not have a calculator page and would like it added to your website, please contact and we will add it for you at no extra charge.

Email addresses removed from Lite Sites

15 JUN 2022

Recent industry norms have been to not display email addresses on websites. This is to stop bots and people from copying the email addresses off websites and then sending spam, scamming or phishing emails to them. Phishing emails attempt to get the recipient to enter their email password, enabling the hacking of their email account. 

You will note that Property 24, Private Property and many other estate agency websites do not display email addresses anymore.

We have now implemented it on our lite sites and we will be rolling it out to our premium sites. The delayed roll-out on the premium sites is due to having to update each of them individually. If you have a premium site and want us to make this change as soon as possible, let us know and we will put you at the front of the queue. 

The changes are as follows. All email addresses on the Contact Page, Property Page and Agent Page have been replaced with a link to a pop-up form in which the agent or agency can be messaged

Form to message agent.

When this is filled out the agent or agency will have the message emailed to them.

Email sent to the agent.

A confirmation email is also automatically sent to the sender.

Confirmation email sent to the sender.

A copy of the email will also be saved to the admin console enabling the principal to see the leads and messages sent.

Record of emails sent in the admin console.

We are confident this will work for you, but should you want to keep the email addresses displayed on your website please contact and we will revert your website to do so.

Property Practitioners Act Compliance

29 MAR 2022

 The Property Practitioners Act which recently came into effect requires that the wording “Registered with PPRA” must appear on all your marketing material. In order for your website to comply, we have added a setting in your admin console which you will need to enable in order for this to show. 

Choose the show wording from the dropdown.

Once you have enabled it, the wording will appear in the following places:
  • In the footer of your website
  • On your property alert emails
  • On all your property brochures
Another requirement is to change the title Estate Agent to Property Practitioner. You can also do this in the admin console by editing your agent info and updating the “job title” field.

Edit your job title on the edit agent screen.

If you have any questions about any of this, please contact us.

Special Facebook offer for WEB-BOX clients

31 JAN 2022


How often do you look up a company on social media before you decide to start dealing with them? It is no different for estate agencies. 

If managed correctly, a Facebook Business Page gives your estate agency the opportunity to show that you have a good reputation in your field and is another platform to showcase your properties.

Running a professional Facebook Business Page is a skill that takes time and effort so why not let a professional help you.

We have lots of experience running Facebook pages for estate agencies so we know what works and what doesn’t. 

To make it even easier for you to upgrade your Facebook Business Page, or to get started on one we are running an exclusive offer on our Facebook packages to all WEB-BOX clients - we are waiving the setup fee - that is a saving of R4250 + VAT. 

The monthly costs for our packages range from  R2590 +VAT to R4 800 + VAT, depending on your needs - you can read more about them here

If you are interested, please email us before 28th February 2022 and we will get back to you.
