What is your privacy policy?
Your privacy is very important to us. Review the complete policy here.
Can I find out how many people have viewed my ad?
Yes, the count of how many times your ad has been viewed is shown in the 'My Desktop' section. Login to your desktop and look under the heading '# of Times Your Ad has been Viewed' for the count. Although it there is no ability to know who is viewing your ad, this will give you a sense of the activity of your online ad.
Can I reset the ad view counter?
Yes. From your desktop, under 'Options', select the link 'Reset Ad Views to '0''. This will reset your ad counter to zero and begin logging hits to your detail ad from now forward. You may rest the counter as much or as little as you like, however, upon resetting, all history is lost and the counter cannot be recreated.
How do I change my email address for my ad?
Log onto, go to desktop, enter your user name and password. This will bring up your ad # along with a list of options, choose "edit ad" and from there you can make as many changes as you need to. Don't forget to save your changes.
I cannot view the photos on my ad, why?
Usually, all of your photos are showing on the site. You may have difficulty seeing them for one of two reasons. Sometimes the page is cached in memory and it may display the older page from your computer system. You can try to clear your cache to see if that helps. More likely is that pictures can be blocked due to their size - or they may be considered to be ads, especially if you are using Norton Internet Security or Zone Alarm. Check the size settings and the ad blocking settings and make some adjustments and most likely your ads will show (see the support section of the products website for information on adjusting the settings).
I have pertinent info listed under place to describe yard and landscaping - why is this not printing on the short form?
Due to limited space on the short brochure, the Yard & Landscaping section is only included in the long brochure. Any extra information you want included on the short brochure can be placed in the short or long (additional information) descriptions.
We wish to add discount or allowance info that would only show up on long form or web page. Is there a way to enter info in the additional section by bracketing or ? that would keep it off the short form?
The long brochure will show all of the fields that are filled out, while the short brochure will show the labeled fields (price, address, bedrooms, etc...) as well as the short description, long description, and the open house message. Currently, the only way to accomplish what you are looking to do is to include the information in another field that does not appear on the short brochure. One example is the yard description. You could finish the yard description and put in a couple of blank spaces and then enter your description. Alternatively, we suggest you put "Contact Us for Special Allowances" (as an example) in your short description. This will more likely generate more calls and emails and give you an opportunity to talk to self qualified buyers.
I tried sending a test "e-mail seller" through my site and it did not go through, why?
Your email is not correctly setup in your ad. Please login to your desktop ( and edit your ad. There is a field for your email address. Please check that entry and make any necessary corrections and save the ad. Once this is complete, you will begin receiving emails from the site.
I wanted to edit my ad to remove the phrase "Seller is offering a commission to buyer's agent completing the transaction. How can i do that?
To remove the statement in your ad regarding the Buyer Agent Commission, you simply need to not offer any commission by setting the option "Willing to pay buyers agent" to 0% when you edit your ad and then the statement automatically disappears from the ad.
The photo on my ad and flyer is shown as cut in half horizontally. How can I fix this?
This sometimes happens when the photo you load is much larger than normal. We first suggest simply reloading the photo again as this often fixes the problem. If not, we recommend you resizing the photo (still maintaining the 4x3 ratio, example: 800x600 at 72 dpi).
May as is not displaying on the website. What happened and how can I fix this?
