we will be featuring selected questions from users in each newsletter. please send any questions to the editor.
q: how do i publish a new listing?
a: click on publish new listings in the client access area. if your drop-downs have not been populated, you will be sent to the populate drop-downs page first. for detailed instructions about populating drop-down boxes, see the edit dropdowns (instructions) in the client access area. once your drop-down boxes are populated, you can go straight to the listings publisher page, fill in the information that is needed, and upload the photos of the home. if you get an error message after you publish the new listing, make sure that all of the required information is filled in. check the name of the photo as well, making sure that there are no characters other than letters, numbers, and underscores.
q: why is the street number and street name required when adding a new listing?
a: the street number and street name serve as references to you, they are not published on the consumer side of the website. this makes it easier to organize your listings. if there is no address for the home you are listing (such as for a sales lot home), we recommend using the number associated with the home and "sales lot" for the street name to identify the listing.
q: why is there so much information to fill in for each listing?
a: manufacturedhomestoday.com® is your 24/7 sales agent. it allows a consumer to browse through listings and develop an interest in the homes that meet their needs. the more information you provide on your listings, the more of a chance you have to pique the consumers interest. do not be surprised to hear them say "we want to see this one" and hand you a printout of your home listing.
