Web-Box Portals Update

03 MAY 2018


As you might have heard, Hozi Homes has closed down and therefore unfortunately your properties cannot be listed there anymore. However, we still ensure that our clients get optimum exposure via the available property portals.

Your web-box website gives you the ability to copy properties to all of South Africa's largest free property portals and optional pay ones. The optional pay property portals are: privateproperty.co.za, property24.com and the free property portals are: gumtree.co.za (5 properties free, pay for more), iolproperty.co.za (free in some areas, pay in others), rentbay.co.za, property.pricecheck.co.za, locanto.co.za, trovit.co.za, mitula.co.zahomehunt.co.za, immoafrica.net.

Load once and appear everywhere! If you have any questions, don’t forget we are just a phone call or email away.

Property24 Video Uploads

12 MAR 2018

In our constant quest to make your website work as hard for you as possible, we’ve worked with Property24 to allow any videos you load to a property in your web-box admin console to now automatically pull through to your listing on Property24. No more extra work of sending your videos separately to them for you!

Just follow these quick steps to ensure your videos go through to Property24:

Upload your property as normal. Once uploaded, go back to the property and under “action” click “edit”. Then scroll down to the bottom and click on “add a video”


Enter the video link and click “update”


You’ll be taken back to the upload screen, where you must remember to then click “update” at the bottom too!
Ta da! Your video will now be on your Property24 listing.

Remember, you will need an account with Property24 if you want your properties to feed through to them. Please feel free to contact us on support@webbox.co.za for any assistance.

HomeHunt - an additional free portal for you!

15 AUG 2017

   

As usual, web-box have been working on quality portal partnerships for you and we’re excited to tell you that the properties on your web-box website are now also being automatically fed through to HomeHunt

The team who created HomeHunt are from HomeTimes. HomeTimes provides “unbiased and independent knowledge, advice and guidance on all facets of your home”. They have built up South Africa’s largest residential-focused property group on Facebook, which has over 311 000 followers.

HomeHunt will only include a property if they have its location. So in order for your property to appear you must select ‘mark gps coordinates’ or ‘mark address on the map’ in the upload/edit screen in your web-box admin console.


    


We hope you gain tremendous exposure from our new addition! And if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Your properties on PriceCheck

20 SEP 2017

   
We are happy to let you know that we have completed our feed to PriceCheck Property and now all your properties will appear there!

“With over 11 years in the South African market, a strong online brand, and 2.5 million visitors PriceCheck has evolved into a comprehensive shopping destination for the consumer.”

The website presents the properties beautifully and as they are a very strong brand in South Africa having your properties there will generate you leads and also impress your sellers - don’t forget to let them know their property is listed there by sending them an “owner email” (let us know if you want help).

PriceCheck will be charging for property listings in the future, but are currently on a free trial. They will give you advance notice before they start charging.
