While with reverse auction, you can let your customers view offers placed by multiple contractors, and then decide the best offer that they would like to take up.Offers - Contractors too no longer have to compromise on payments. They can place a bid and provide days they will take to complete the assignment.Paid featured listings - Let your customers attract more audience to their listing by making their listing a paid featured listing. Featured listings are placed at the beginning of the listing page.Custom field creation - Personalize and customize the site by adding fields as per your business needs.

Why your property listing site is doing it all wrong and how to fix it

Just a couple of days back, we had a client explain a situation he faced with a customer. Now, this customer wanted to buy a property in London and was using the client’s property listing site to understand his choices. Though our client was excited and hoping this deal clicks, the deal did not go through. Why you ask? The simple reason being that the way our client’s site was structured! It turns out the customer was not able to find listings as per his preferences due to the site limitations.

 

Property listing sites are not just a simple search, they need to be the GOOGLE of search. This means your customers need to find all your listings that are applicable to their search in matter of minutes and in the easiest way possible.
