    Property Marketing Details

    The property details section  requires a Headline for the listing and a description.

    • Property Headline should be short, eye catching and informative *Required
    • Longer, more detailed property descriptions will give the prospective tenant a better idea of what to expect from that property before a showing. Be sure to include all relevant information so that your agents are not spending time showing the property to tenants who are unsure of what the property has to offer. *Required
    • Mark the property furnished or unfurnished
    • Enter the lot size. Currently the only option is in acres.
    • Add a virtual tour link. Youtube, vimeo and Matterport are some of the most commonly used formats for virtual tours. 
    • If you are using Rentvine applications the APP url will already be populated. This can be changed if you are using a third party provider.
    • If you are using Rently as a showing provider please enter the lockbox Number.
    • Add a description to the lockbox if applicable.
