The client profile template creates a page that leads will see when they log in. Here, they can view their saved searches or favorite listings.
The contact page template generates a contact form on the live site, but you can also add content such as text, images or video as you would with a default page template. To learn how to set up this template click here.
Listings Search Page
Selecting this template creates your listings search page. You can choose whether to display Sales, Rentals or all listings, and you also have the option to choose which listings search page will be the default.
The Testimonials Index page template generates a list of the testimonials you add to your site. To find out how to add testimonials, click here.
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. This feature is currently included within Placester's Essential and Premium subscriptions. Click here for a walk through.
Custom Landing Page
A Custom Landing Page allows real estate professionals to produce customized pages that capture information from prospective clients. Rather than just having a contact page on your site that asks for basic contact information, custom landing pages allow you to tailor your lead capture approach and collect the specific information you're hoping to capture. To learn how to set up this template click here.
IDX pages are advanced page templates that are available with advanced subscriptions. While all subscription levels allow you to create Area Pages based on cities, zip codes and neighborhoods, IDX pages provide a more customizable approach that allows you to select a combination of search criteria to create search pages that are tailored to your specific needs. The criteria used to narrow down the listings on the search page are more expansive than on Area Pages.
Featured Listings Page
The Featured listings page template creates a list of properties that match the criteria you set for your Featured Listings. To find out how to use this template, click here.
RealSatisfied Ratings and Reviews
When integrating your RealSatisfied account to your Placester account, you will have the ability to access your RealSatisfied Ratings and Reviews page template. When this page is added to your site, your RealSatisfied statistics and testimonials will automatically feed to your Placester site. Click here to learn how to set up this template.
