How to add your sold listings to your real estate website

Create Custom Lists of Sold Listings, or Your Current Listings, on your WordPress Real Estate Website

 

“…the key indicator that matters to the one client looking for help with that one transaction is; “Can you close the deal?”, says Trulia writer Jovan Hackley

 

Give your websites more G.L.A.M.R. by increasing your Legitimacy and proving that you Can Close The Deal.  You can do this by having a method to Display Sold Listings on your Real Estate Website.

100% of the Real Estate Websites we build are on WordPress.

90% of the Real Estate Websites we build are using IDX Broker Platinum.

90% of the Real Estate Websites we build are using an Agent Evolution Theme.

 

This instructional blog post assumes that your Real Estate Website is:

How To Display Your Sold Listings

This can only be done by manually entering your listings.  You can use the Sold/Pending feature of IDX Broker… However, we recommend that you use the WP Listings Plugin.

Since both methods require your valuable time we think you will get maximum results using the WP Listings Plugin.

This is because your Sold Listings will be stored on your self hosted WordPress in an archive that will give your Local SEO some much needed Google Juice.  They will act like blog posts, or new content, and help build your Search Rankings.
