How To Create A Neighborhood Listings Page on IDX Broker Platinum

 

There are many ways to create “Neighborhood Pages”. In this video I will be using IDX Broker PT Plugin, WordPress, and Genesis with Agent Evolution Child Theme.

I create the Neighborhood Pages on the IDX Broker platform so that you can have a map of all the listings and of course all of the listings on the same page.

You could, of course, also create a Neighborhood page on the WordPress Platform and Link to the actual listings. This may be useful if are planning on building super complex Neighborhood Pages.

 

Creating a Neighborhood Listings Page

Youtube Created Transcript of Video:

0:00
this video is going to show how to make a neighborhood
0:03
search page on IDX broker platinum
0:06
The first thing we do is create
0:10
a page a listings
0:13
You do that under preferences and saved links
0:16
manage if you wanna go to a page you have already created and create a new one
0:21
create a new page is what we are going to do.  We are going to use the Advanced search
0:26
that gives us the ability to search communities,
0:29
Developments, areas,  however your MLS classifies them.
0:34
We want to do a residential search we wanna put
0:37
all listings for property types on there.
0:40
This particular client is working in Henderson
0:44
and for this page were gonna go ahead and look for the community
0:49
of Anthem.  We’re gonna create a page full of listings
0:54
so I wanna show all listings, so I just can’t put 0 to a
0:57
really big number. Results for page
1:01
I like a lot but whatever you think, I select “newest listings”
1:05
so the newest listings show up on top. Depending on the MLS, IDX Broker is going to show you
1:11
all kinds of different ways of categorizing the listings.  We see here with this MLS
1:19
we have the community name so we will search for Anthem and there it is.
1:23
Select that and the next steps in our process is
1:28
to actually create a page with all listings in Anthem
1:31
and the anthem community of Henderson NV.
1:36
I am  gonna go ahead and call this Anthem
1:39
neighborhood Henderson NV. You can put in some meta tag also,
1:53
I don’t have it handy.  Now here’s their part where we gonna
1:59
customize it a little bit.  The sub header area is gonna show up above
2:03
the listings on that page.  I’m gonna put a little neighborhood
2:07
write up and and a picture.
2:10
I come here a and add some
2:15
text and
2:18
pop it in here.   I’m borrowed some in this text or
2:22
verbage from this site here.
2:29
This is actually the neighborhood site
2:33
so they shouldn’t mind me giving them
2:36
attribution (a link to original content) Add a little bit of text.  Wikipedia
2:41
is real good, never take anything from another
2:45
agents site, and never take any content without giving credit or attribution.
2:51
That’s called stealing.
2:55
We have a little write up, got a little attribution link, let’s go ahead and
3:00
drop an image in.  In order to do that though, the image has to be stored or hosted somewhere
3:04
so I am going to comeback
3:04
to the agents WordPress site.
3:08
Add new media and they have their
3:14
pictures here we can use,
3:19
Upload that picture.
3:23
I am gonna grab the URL and bring it back to a DX broker backend.
3:33
Insert image, image URL goes here,
3:37
the description is Anthem NV.
3:41
Appearance, I wanna go ahead and
3:45
align it right, I want the dimensions to be 400px wide,
3:49
this is just me, you can change it to whatever size you like.
3:52
I am going to put a little horizontal space, I like about 20 pixels of space and a 5 pixel
3:56
border.
3:57
I don’t want any margin on the right just on the left.
4:01
Instead of a black border I want
4:05
it to be a nice grey color. Insert the image,
4:12
I am also going to bold  the word Anthem.
4:15
That is that I am going to go ahead and save and manage my links.
4:20
The page will
4:23
look something like this.  I am going to style it up a little bit more.
4:31
If you scroll down you see all listings
4:35
for Sun City anthem and have yourself
4:39
a neighborhood page.  FYI – I am also going to put an <h1>tag at the top of the content </h1>
