You must be a Real Estate Agent to participate. For more information about the Buyer Lead Program, please call our office at 888-933-5253 or Contact Us by email
- More Listings & Up to Date Listings. Online Shoppers now have the BEST one-stop-shop on the internet for Lake, Beach and Golf Properties with listings getting updated every 2-4 hours and they now have access to MORE listings on our websites than ever before.
1. NEW and UPDATED listings will be imported and updated every 2-4 hours if your MLS participates with ListHub. Listings that are Waterfront, have a pond, or have a Lake, Beach or Golf VIEW will be pulled from the millions of listings available from ListHub.
2. If you have a LakeHouse.com, BeachHouse.com or GolfHomes.com account, listings will be ADDED to your account when the ListHub Agent Email or Agent phone matches your account's email, phone-1 or phone-2. There are multiple ways to manage the matching, including a match by broker email, broker phone and an additional email address.
4. Listings may be claimed by having purchased a package with the DreamHomeNetwork group of sites. NEW and UPDATED Listings that match your account, will be ADDED to your account with the next run of the feed, which occurs every 2 hours. If it is urgent that your listings be pulled into your account or they did not get added correctly, please call our office at 888-933-5253 or Contact Us by email.
5. Listings will be ADDED to your account until you have reached your ads allowed limit on your advertising package. After your ads allowed limit is reached, listings will be ADDED to your account as INACTIVE ads. If you wish to upgrade your package, you can then activate the inactive ads.
6. If you do not want to use the ListHub listings, you can disable them and manually enter and manage your listings.
7. Your Spotlight ad will continue to display with your listings and will also display with unclaimed ListHub listings that are in the same area (lake, beach city, or golf) as your Spotlight ad.
8. You will have the ability to set the category location (lake, golf course, etc) if it has not already been set, and edit any other information, including Title, Description and photos after the ListHub import has occurred. However (!important), if you choose to edit the information on the listing that originates from ListHub and the MLS, you will be assuming complete management of that listing, including sale status, price updates, etc. and the listing will no longer be updated by the ListHub process. Certain fields that are specific to our website(s), that do not come from ListHub, can be edited without assuming complete management of the listing.
9. All paid advertisers’ listings will be FEATURED and SORT TO THE TOP of search results, above the unclaimed ListHub listings.
10. Programming has been put in place to prevent duplicates, as much as possible, by matching street address and MLS #s. However, data from the MLS may come to us in ways that limit our ability to manage duplicates programmatically. When we receive a (duplicate) listing from ListHub that is already on the site, we will ADD it to your account as an Inactive ad. You will then have the choice of using your original listing or the ListHub provided listing.
For questions regarding our ListHub Feed Program, please call our office at 888-933-5253 or Contact Us by email.
What should I purchase a package if my listings are added automatically from Listhub?
The benefits to purchasing a package and being a Lakehouse member are many.
#1 Exclusive Leads. The leads for your listings will be sent only to you. If you do not have a paid package with us, the leads from your listings are shared with other paying member agents, (who could be your competition!). If we do not have any member agents in your area, then the inquiries are sent to a lead conversion company that forwards them to a matching agent in their network.
#2 Find an Agent page listing. With a minimum purchase of a Bronze package ($299/yr), you will be listed on one of our most popular pages. This is where buyers go to find an agent to work with.
#3 Featured as one of our Lake Specialists. With a minimum purchase of a BronzePlus package ($399/yr), you will be promoted as a Lakehouse representative for your area with an Agent Spotlight listing. This includes a large photo of either you or your logo, and a Contact button, and a link to your own Agent Page, displaying your listings. The Agent Spotlight displays prominently in the center of the page, among the listings in your area.
#4 Buyer Leads program. With a minimum purchase of a BronzePlus package ($399/yr), you can receive leads from the unclaimed listings in your area. An unclaimed listing is one that Lakehouse gets from Listhub that has not been claimed by the listing agent, meaning they have chosen not to become a Lakehouse member.
