Real estate listing is one of the most important elements in a real estate website. It includes a detailed description of the object, its peculiarities and characteristics. Let's see what elements and characteristics must be in a listing to provide a client detailed information about the property they would like to rent or purchase.
The main principle of placing some particular features in a listing is that all the information should help selling an object and show its advantages and peculiarities and also make a client trust you. It is achieved due to publishing reviews about a flat (for renting), high quality photos and videos of the property, full and trustworthy information about a seller.
Pay attention to the peculiarities of giving information in a site. According to numerous researches a track of user's sight while looking through an internet web page corresponds to "F" letter. That's why you should post necessary information according to this track.
An object listing can be conventionally divided into several sections.
Top left hand corner: navigation, heading + the image of an object and its video.
Top right hand corner: the so-called purchase section. In a property listing it's a field with data that concerns the target-action, namely renting or buying a property.
Bottom part: all the possible characteristics of the real estate object.
Let's have a look at the elements of each section in a page.
Usually a property address, number of rooms and square in different combinations are used as a heading. It lets a user filter the objects they need, as square and geographical position are usually the main values in choosing a flat.
Clear and convenient navigation lets a user return instantaneously in the section they need. Often there is a huge number of objects, that's why in a listing there must be a path up to the page, where the user is.
It's much more easier to get a full impression of a flat due to visual images. Photo or video will present a dwelling better than any description. That's why when you publish pictures make sure that they are of high quality.
This section serves directly for making a target action that's why it's better to make it as visible as possible. You can emphasize it with the changing of background color or brights buttons which call on actions.
Here it's relevant to place the following elements:
In this section you should indicate all the possible characteristics of a dwelling which you offer. The more details, the better.
This section helps to hold a user up in a site and simplifies the navigation. If for some reasons the user is not satisfied with the flat they have viewed they can easily switch into viewing similar options.
When the database is huge this function is very useful. With its help a user can easily return to the flats they have just viewed.
In a nutshell, a listing made in a proper way will do half of the real estate agent's work: present an object in a good way. When a listing of an object fulfills its objectives, a potential customer can easily imagine a property and then they will need less time to make a decision.
