This article will walk you through how to create a home valuation page on your Placester site.

Please note that this feature is only available on Advanced Plan and Office Builder subscriptions. If you’re currently not subscribed to one of these packages but are interested in learning more, please visit our packages and pricing page.

What is a Home Valuation Page?

A home valuation page is a landing page that helps generate seller leads. The lead capture form on this page prompts potential clients to enter their home address and some contact information in order to hear back from an agent with a home value estimate. 

How do I create a Home Valuation Page?

To create a Home Valuation Page, you'll need to be logged into the backend of your Placester Site. From the backend of your site, on the bottom right corner of the customizer menu click Create New > Page.

Once you're in Pages, click on the drop down menu of page templates. Here, choose 'Home Valuation' as the Template for the page. Next under Page Options in the page title section, input what you want the page to be called.

Page Display Options

Within a Home Valuation Page, you have a few display settings that can be adjusted based on your preferences. You can check off ‘disable header on this page’ and ‘disable footer on this page’. With these settings, your home valuation page will not display your site's header and footer. 

Selecting just ‘disable header on this page’ will eliminate the main navigation menu while leaving your branding and office information in the footer of the page.

Hiding the menu, header and footer is a great option if you plan to drive leads directly to this page through an advertisement or link on social media. This converts the home valuation page into what appears to be a standalone bounce page or landing page, so it will force the prospective client to fill out information before proceeding to your full site.

[Note that you also have the option to add the Home Valuation page to the header menu by checking the box to ‘add page to header menu.]

Here are some screenshots of a Home Valuation Page with these settings applied.

Suggested Image Size

The suggested background image size is 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels tall. This recommendation is for both with a banner and without a banner (if you’ve hidden the navigation menu and header/footer). 

Form Customization

Within the Home Valuation page template editor, you have the option to customize every aspect of this form from the title to the thank you message your clients will receive. The screenshots and video below display how you can edit this page.

Front End Key

After form is submitted

After you've filled out your Home Valuation form settings, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Publish. 

What happens when someone fills out my Home Valuation Page? 

When someone fills out your home valuation page, they will receive an automatic email from you through a pre-created autoresponder.  You'd be able to turn off or edit this Autoresponder by going to Leads > Plans > Autoresponders. Check out our Autoresponders support article to learn more about these setup steps.

In addition to your prospective client receiving an immediate email upon filling out the form on your home valuation page, you will also receive a lead notification email including the lead's name, address that they are requesting a home valuation for and their phone number.  Like all lead capture notifications, this email will be directly sent to the email address associated with your Placester account.

You'll also be able to see the lead's information by going to "Leads" Tab through your Placester admin panel, clicking on the lead's name or email address and viewing the details within their lead profile.
